Hotmail passwords leaked online

If you’re a Windows Live Hotmail user, change your password and security question immediately, warns Neowin.

Because, it says, it’s received information, “regarding a possible Windows Live Hotmail ‘hack’ or phishing scheme where password details of thousands of Hotmail accounts have been posted online.”

An anonymous user posted details of the accounts on October 1 at pastebin.com, a site commonly used by developers to share code snippets, says the story, going on:

“The details have since been removed but Neowin has seen part of the list posted and can confirm the accounts are genuine and most appear to be based in Europe.

“The list details over 10,000 accounts starting from A through to B, suggesting there could be additional lists. Currently it appears only accounts used to access Microsoft’s Windows Live Hotmail have been posted, this includes @hotmail.com, @msn.com and @live.com accounts.”

Neowin says it past the alert to Microsoft’s Security Response Center and PR teams in the UK and US and is, “currently awaiting feedback on the situation.”

You've been warned.  8)

I know a few people might not off. So please change your passwords.
