    Has my hotmail been hacked?

    Just signed into my Hotmail account and noticed an e-mail has been sent to everyone of my contacts, any advice?
    Copy of e-mail in next post.

    Dear friend,How are you recently?I bought a laptop from a website: … Dear friend,How are you recently?I bought a laptop from a website: [url](www.link removed)[/url] last week. I have got the product. Its quality is very good and the price is competitive. They also sell phones, TV, psp, motor and so on. By the way, they import product from Korea and sell new and original products. They have good reputation and have many good feedbacks. If you need these products, look at this website will be a clever choice. I am sure you will get many surprise and benefits.Greetings!xgmgof

    That had happened to me before. I HAVE no idea how they did it because I don't really recall clicking a "dodgy" link and even if i did, firefox + Kapersky immediately stops me from proceeding. So I think they done the "brute force" route of using billions of passwords.

    on second thought:

    so i guess poor security by some 3rd party

    yes was on the enws earlier .... hotmail, msn, aol and a few others have apparently been hacked and lots of email addresses with passwords have been posted on the net.... eek

    Can we remove the web site name from the second post, I dont think we should be giving more publicity to spammers.

    My mum's yahoo account got done too. As for clicking a dodgy link, or anything, god knows with my nutty old bint of a mother!
