Yet Another Hotmail Security Breach

from the sieve-sieve-sieve dept

Not that it’s a surprise or anything, but Microsoft’s Hotmail is apparantly vulnerable to yet another attack. This time, however, their response is that it’s the user’s fault for not disabling javascript. This is ridiculous. Blaming the user for not turning off a feature of their browser is not a real solution. How many people are actually going to turn off javascript, just so they can feel safe using Hotmail?
