(Newser) – All but inevitable? Microsoft has joined the ranks of US companies that admit to having been hacked, Reuters reports. On the heels of Twitter, Apple, Facebook, the New York Times, and others, Microsoft today announced that a few of its computers were infected with malware after connecting to a software developer website.
