Hotmail Security Breach

Dan Miller writes “Ok, this is absurd. It seems that anyone with a Hotmail account had their accounts cracked wide open with a few lines of HTML code. When CNN contacted Microsoft, they were referred to Corporate Security, who recommended sending a note to That’s just great.”

Fraudulent Email sent out of my account asking for money

Please advice me on what to do concerning this issue. A good friend of mine received an email from me asking for $2400 to wire to London. I did not sent the email nor i am in London. She called me this morning. I worked for the U.S. Navy and is at work right now and unable to access my hotmail account from work.

You can respond to me and send it to my navy account

My work phone is 757-462-8935. I did not know what to do so I called and reported this to the FBI office in Elizabeth City, NC and called my nmci office on the base that I worked. She was the one who advised me to contact you at hotmail security.
