To fellow netizens out there, if you have an email address/account, including Hotmail/MSN one, try protecting it. Don’t click random links within your email, don’t randomly use/broadcast your email address for filling silly forms/surveys, and don’t share your password with anyone. In other words, use common sense. You don’t know what sort of spam bots are trying to hack into your account and abuse it.
I get annoyed by those infected email accounts that send random unsolicited emails, or even try to smarten me up via Windows Messenger.
Had I clicked on that link, I’m pretty sure my email account would have been compromised the same way as CINDI’s account was.
