the big question I have is, was it a phishing scheme or a hack? Big difference.
If it was a phishing scheme, I don't much care.
If it was a hack, I need to change my passwords asap (european b*@hotmail address).

READ YOU PIECE OF CRAP.
"Earlier today, Microsoft announced that it's currently looking into a possible phishing scheme that has exposed the passwords of "thousands" of Windows Live Hotmail accounts.
I have Gmail and Hotmail. I get less spam on Gmail, but that's most likely due to the fact that that's a school account, and I don't use if for shit like Facebook or youtube. But I still like hotmail... it's definitely not a bad service.
Either it was one hell of a phishing scheme, or MS is lying, and it was really a hack... For people to actually give their login credentials(instead of just personal info), it would have to be pretty convincing, and would've had to have gone on for quite some time without getting caught, otherwise it would be marked as spam...
...But since they're saying "probably phishing", that means "probably a hack", otherwise, if it were phishing, they would've identified the phishing email and site already... Getme?
