Programmer who accidentally became the manager of Microsoft Turkey: Mehmet Tütüncü
Tütüncü stated that he opened the message titled “Welcome, Microsoft Turkey is Now on Google My Business” that he received in his post and that he saw the “Activate Now” button in the message. Tütüncü, who found himself as the manager of Microsoft Turkey after pressing this button, said that he could also access Microsoft Turkey’s business account in Google. Tütüncü stated that Microsoft Turkey has full authority over the business profile and has many powers such as advertising, profile and product editing.
Tütüncü, who tried to reach Microsoft from everywhere, did not receive any response. He shared the event on his Twitter account and the event went viral. It is not certain whether Microsoft is aware of this error, but people from many platforms such as LinkedIn are reporting the situation to Microsoft.
Although this mistake of Microsoft Turkey stood out as an example of the technology giant’s weaknesses in security, this incident also appealed to many people’s sense of humor. Companies need to strengthen their security systems so that such mistakes do not happen again in the world of technology.
