Microsoft has said it is investigating the hacking of a small number of its computers - a breach which it said was "similar" to security intrusions recently reported by Apple Inc and Facebook.
Microsoft Corp, the world's largest software company, said the computers targeted with malware included some in its Mac software business unit, Reuters has reported.
The firm said there was no evidence customer data had been affected.
