Skype said its social media properties were targeted, with a group styling itself as the Syrian Electronic Army appearing to claim credit for the hacks.
"You may have noticed our social media properties were targeted today," Skype said in a Twitter message
late Wednesday. "No user info was compromised. We're sorry for the inconvenience."
Skype's Twitter account, blog and Facebook page appeared to have been attacked by the SEA, a group that supports the Syrian government, according to reports. The Skype blog was still inaccessible late Wednesday and redirected users to the Skype home page.
