Microsoft is looking into reports that some Windows Live customers may have gotten access to other users' information.

"Microsoft is investigating reports of a limited number of instances in which Windows Live customers may have access to other customers' accounts when accessing their account through mobile Web browser," the company said in a statement Tuesday.
