Microsoft says some Hotmail passwords exposed
Microsoft Corp said on Monday that passwords belonging to some users of its Hotmail email service were exposed on an Internet site, but had since been taken down. The company did not say how many users were affected, but some reports suggested that passwords to more than 10,000 accounts were exposed. "We are aware that some Windows Live Hotmail customers' credentials were acquired illegally by a phishing scheme and exposed on a website," a Microsoft spokesman said.
