Default Microsoft hacked?

In the okopipi irc room I was just given this URL:

http://experts.microsoft.fr/default.aspx

which displays that here:

redLine ownz y0u!

Special Thanx And Gretz RudeBoy |SacRedSeer| The_Bekir And All Turkish HacKers

next target: microsoft.com

WE WERE HERE....
Since microsoft.fr gets redirected to microsoft.com/france I assume it's a real subdomain of them... maybe for some project. Furthermore I don't think Microsoft would pull a joke like that as this can seriously damage their image and trust in their security services.
Due to all of that I assume this is real.
