Another reason to stop using Hotmail

coldmail
I don’t know anyone who has used Hotmail in years. But if you are still amongst the few who use it, here is Reason #461 not to do so.

Neowin reports that some anonymous user posted details, including passwords, of thousands of users accounts with @hotmail.com, @msn.com and @live.com. Ars Technica says the list included usernames starting from “ar” to “bl”.

So if you have a Hotmail account, go change your password or better, abandon it. Meanwhile I’ll try to get hold of the list and find Avril Lavigne’s hotmail password 😉
