The technology giant said a "limited" number of accounts had been affected by the breach, but confirmed around 6% of those involved may have seen the content of their e-mails become accessible to the attackers.
Motherboard's source suggested that hackers could access accounts for six months, though Microsoft is standing by an email it sent to affected users between January 1 and March 28.
'Upon awareness of this issue, Microsoft immediately disabled the compromised credentials, prohibiting their use for any further unauthorised access. A source described the attack before Microsoft released its statement, and then provided screenshots to prove it. Microsoft then confirmed to Motherboard that some email content had been accessed.
Microsoft sent a warning to Outlook users detailing a hack that lasted from January 1 to March 28.
We don't know how many accounts that is, because Microsoft didn't provide an estimate of the overall number of users who were hit by this hack.
"We addressed this scheme, which affected a limited subset of consumer accounts, by disabling the compromised credentials and blocking the perpetrators' access", a Microsoft spokesperson told Motherboard.
Details of the security breach were revealed when TechCrunch ran a report claiming that some Outlook.com accounts - and those with Hotmail email addresses (the old name for Outlook.com) or MSN.com users - had been compromised. The hack did not affect enterprise accounts, it added.
In an email to affected users, Microsoft noted that it "regrets any inconvenience caused by this issue", and that they should be "assured that Microsoft takes data protection very seriously and has engaged its internal security and privacy teams in the investigation and resolution of the issue, as well as additional hardening of systems and processes to prevent such recurrence".
In response to the breach, Microsoft is warning affected people to watch out for phishing emails, and recommends that people change their password.
