Hotmail Compromised

How the hell did they do that .. first I would like to say sorry to the people in the contacts who managed to get spammed.

Dunno how they managed it, but they send some spam from my hotmail account, and even set my Out of Office?!

Looks like it was 5 emails sent at 16:32 to around 200+ recipients .. all I can say is sorry

Anyway, password is changed and I think its time to potentially retire from Hotmail and use my own Exchange Server now instead.

What is interesting is that it would appear that hotmail doesn’t appear to lock your account if you enter incorrect passwords :-|

Sorry again
