    Do you mean it happened very recently? Where have you read it?

    Something similar happened in the past, though; judging by a quick search.

    This sounds like back in the day with the rise of websites that asked you to type in your password and they "told" you who has blocked you :x

    Question about the exploit. Does it require a third-party connection? I mean, is the exploit hosted at Microsoft's own servers? If does require a third-party connection, and if, in fact, there's danger, then all you got to do is to restrict communications to Microsoft/Hotmail's server IPs/domains.

    There were some issues with Hotmail ads in the past. It could very well be the source; these are automatically loaded, and you don't need to click in anything. Granted, whatever could happen afterwards, could very well be prevented. I remember someone posting one of such situations sometime ago, and it tried to make the user install something.

    Yes, it's an exploit. You've said it a few times already. But, the question was: Where is the exploit hosted? Is it hosted at Microsoft's own servers?

    Even if you don't need to interact with the exploit, the exploit code still needs to get executed. So, where is the exploit code hosted?

    -edit-

    I think I'm understanding now. It's a flaw in Hotmail itself (e-mail recovery option), correct? :)

    The vulnerability is in the MS servers, I assume. It can be exploited by anyone who can access those servers ie: anyone.

    I think the main problem is that, at first - at least me :D - it sounded as if Hotmail was redirecting users to some exploit. Which is why I mentioned that it happened in the past - an hijacked advertisement. Also the reason I mentioned that restricting communications only to Hotmail servers would solve it.

    I mean 0-day exploit... I usually think of exploits against the web browsers/plug-ins. :D Then, it isn't really a 0-day exploit - Microsoft seems to be aware of it for 3 days now, at least, and got it most of the issue solved by now, according to kaioo.

    A title like Hotmail vulnerable and open to attacks or something more catchy, would have made it more clear... to me. :D
