    Hotmail adds "my friend's been hacked" reporting feature

    Hotmail adds "my friend's been hacked" reporting feature | ZDNet

    Faced with the sobering reality that about 30 percent of all Hotmail spam comes from compromised e-mail accounts, Microsoft has added a nifty “My friend’s been hacked!” reporting feature.

    The crowd-sourcing feature, which can be found in the “Mark as” menu, lets users report compromised accounts directly to Hotmail.

    “When you report that your friend’s account has been compromised, Hotmail takes that report and combines it with the other information from the compromise detection engine to determine if the account in question has in fact been hijacked. It turns out that the report that comes from you can be one of the strongest “signals” to the detection engine, since you may be the first to notice the compromise,” according to Microsoft’s **** Craddock.

    I missed this since I rarely use Hotmail anymore due to all the spam(worse than Yahoo!). So thank you anyway, Jay.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Well, if you hardly use it, then I guess it's not very relevant to you.

    I still have an account with Hotmail so it's still relevant to me, even if I don't sign in there too often.

    I just went back over there and they fixed the spam problem somewhat, it seems.

    If ever there was a service that needed a tool to report your friend's account being hacked, it's Hotmail. AOL and FaceBook could use one too.
    Touchscreens are a fad.
