Hotmail Passwords Leaked Online – Good password policy practice, change it.

Hotmail passwords leaked online.

I am sure most of you have seen this already, but just incase here it is.

It appears the Windows Live system was hacked and as a result someone kindly posted the details of accounts on pastebin.com.

I have not seen the information myself, but apparently over 10,000 accounts from A – B where posted. So if you do fall into this category or even not it might be a good idea to change your password if your not doing this on a regular basis already.

Update : It is now believed that Google Mail, AOL, and Yahoo have also been subjected to this breach.
