Hotmail Hijack #2

Hotmail Hijack #2
         


<p>We've had some more feedback from people who have been affected by Hotmail hijackers. It seems that changing your Hotmail password should be effective &mdash; provided that you can prevent the hijackers re-acquiring your new password.</p>

<p>In addition to changing your password and making sure that any 'alternate email address' linked to your account is correct, you should also check:</p>
<ul>
<li>Your vacation message</li>
<li>Your signature</li>
</ul>

<p>and remove any text that the scammers have added there. You can update your signature and vacation message through the "Options" menu at the top right of the main Hotmail mail page. Choose "More Options" from the pull-down menu to get access to your account settings.</p>
