  • Thousands of Hotmail Accounts Hacked

    It has been confirmed that thousands of Hotmail accounts have been hacked. The full dimension of this issue is not known yet.

    It is recommended that everyone who uses the Windows Live services (email addresses like hotmail.com, msn.com and live.com) change their password as soon as possible.
    Plus if they use the same password somewhere else, should change it, too.

      Thanks Mystery!!! I have changed all my hotmail passwords.

      BTW, might be a stupid question, but how do you know you are hacked? I mean is it possible to get hacked without knowing it?

        I saw a follow up to this story on this mornings Today Show. You get an e-mail from someone in your address book saying they are stranded somewhere (such as London) and need you to wire money.

        Not something I would fall for but some folks have gotten scammed by it.
