Change your webmail passwords
Microsoft mail password compromise that we reported yesterday might be even bigger as BBC reported that it has seen more than 20,000 addresses and passwords for e-mail accounts from Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Gmail, EarthLink and Comcast, on the same site.
The number of accounts could even be much bigger but instead of counting the numbers of affected people, it is time to change your password for webmail accounts and preven you also being a part of the affected.
