The Register meldt dat er een massief beveiligingsgat in de Hotmail servers zit:
A catastrophic breach in Hotmail security means that anyone who has one of the freebie mail accounts can have his or her emails read by others.
At the same time, the breach means that once people have logged into the system, they can send, receive and delete emails using that account to their heart's content.
The breach, just tested by The Register using one of our own writer's Hotmail accounts, and found to work, uses a Web address in which you type a hotmail handle. You then have full access to that Hotmail account, with all rights.
For obvious reasons, we are not publishing the Web page address here.
