Microsoft has sacked its CIO for "violating company policies".

Microsoft said CIO Stuart Scott was "terminated" after a company investigation.

The firm is now looking for its fourth CIO in as many years. Until a replacement is found, Shahla Aly, a general manager, and Alain Crozier, a corporate vice-president, will take over his responsibilities.

Scott joined Microsoft in July 2005 after having spent 17 years at General Electric, where he also served as CIO.
