MSN/hotmail phishing alert

for those of you who have hotmail or MSN accounts, take a look at this phishing scheme announced by MSN yesterday.

seems like MSN is quite prone to hacks/attacks (but what's new?) *sigh*... so whether you're affected or not, it's best to just log in and change your password immediately (do so for ALL your MSN/hotmail accounts), just to be safe :)

how to change password:
1) from your hotmail inbox > scroll right down to the bottom, locate the "Account" text link at the right-hand corner.

2) click "Account" and you'll be lead to your accounts settings page > under "Password reset information", click "Change" next to your password field, then update accordingly.

voila! :)
