Microsoft rushes out fix after hackers reset passwords to hack Hotmail
Microsoft says it has fixed a serious vulnerability in Hotmail, that was allowing hackers to reset account passwords, locking out the account's real owner and giving attackers access to users' inboxes.
News of the critical bug spread rapidly across underground hacking forums, and Whitec0de reported earlier this week that hackers were offering to break into any Hotmail account for as little as $20.
