Important read for Hotmail and other Passport users

Microsoft's crappy Passport "technology" was cracked. Anyone with a Hotmail account can have all of their personal info that Passport holds (including address, phone, credit card, etc. if you put it in) read simply by opening an email. No big shocker, it was going to happen sooner or later, but now that it's officially happened it's time to start being extra 'specially careful.

GO MICROSOFT!

(Thanks to chumducky for the link.)

Update: Ok, they took down the passport wallet stuff until they've gotten it fixed, so I guess it's more or less safeish, in the sense that it's disabled. Ahem.
