Hotmail, MSN, Live Email Hacked

Recently, more than 10,000 email accounts was hacked and published over internet. Microsoft is locking all these email accounts and points the real email owner to submit recovery form in order to restore email access. To avoid getting scammed, Microsoft says customers should change their password every 90 days and not open unsolicited email attachments and links from both known and unknown sources/senders.

Thanks for this update.It is surprising that such large number of accounts are hacked and published.I hope both the mail-service provider and the user should have more awareness.
