Microsoft said in a Friday regulatory filing that a Russian hacking group accessed some of the software maker’s top executives’ email accounts. The company said a group called Nobelium carried out the attack, which it detected last week.

The announcement comes after new U.S. requirements for disclosing cybersecurity incidents went into effect. A Microsoft spokesperson said that while the company does not believe the attack had a material impact, it still wanted to provide details publicly.
