Found 27th May 2011
Hi, ive been using hotmail for years now with the same password, never had a problem.
but im trying to log in now and its asking me to set a new password.
is anyone else getting this message??
i havent entered a new one because i think it might be a hack (despite the security icon)
any help would be appreciated.
thanks.

ooops! looks like they might have been compromised and keeping it quiet!

change all your financial passwords including paypal NOW!

I have several hotmail/Live ID accounts. It was only one account that asked me to reset my password (@hotmail.com); the others (@live.co.uk etc) were OK.

Seems fine to me, not asked me. It's not linked to the PS3 saga is it? Are these accounts affected linked to PS3s?

Ahhhhh, it all makes sense now.

Was in a hotel yesterday in chester and needed to access my hotmail via my phone, asked for password reset- i clicked off..........went back into hotmail 10 mins later, never asked for password reset.

oO

Not been able to use mine for a couple of weeks now,tried all that going though the help section to no avail.
