Micro(soft)Shock...!!!

Hotmail ones upon a time was a main loophole for hackers.And nope surprise even after Windows Live,the trend continues.Yahoo has already been the victim and now its time for Hotmail.

Microsoft Corp said on Monday 4th October that passwords belonging to some users of its Hotmail email service were exposed on an Internet site, but had since been taken down.



The company did not say how many users were affected, but some reports suggested that passwords to more than 10,000 accounts were exposed.

Strange is that Microsoft dint reveal the names of customers and said they are on the path to search the same.


I request all the readers to reach my 15th august post for secure your PC locally and on network ( Internet /Intranet)
