    If you’re an Outlook user, you better change your passwords now. The latest notification from Microsoft reveals that one of its customer support agent’s login credentials are compromised, which led external third parties to access the customer’s mailboxes!

    Woosh! But in limited, any party who has access can only view email addresses, folder names and subject lines but not the content and attachments. That’s a needed relief.

    Microsoft, in its reply to TechCrunch’s request, has responded saying that “email services managed by a company which ends with @msn.com or @hotmail.com have been compromised”.

    But the company quickly responded this have and disabled the compromised agent’s credentials and working on limiting the breach. It has even sent notifications to those who have affected and asking them to reset their passwords.

    Though the access by hackers is limited to names-only, it’s unsure what they can do with that stuff. So better be dynamic in choosing your passwords. These hacks will be happening every time though.

    Do you know? There’s a site which tells you whether your email or password has been hacked or not, at any point in time. It’s “Have I been Pwned“. We suggest a visit to that site and check your credentials. Besides, you could see the latest and biggest data hacks/leaks statistics too.
