~~~ NOTE FROM CHRIS: ~~~
On Monday, news sources reported the existence of a bug
which allowed anyone to access anyone else's Hotmail
account, and read and send email from that account.
While Microsoft says they've resolved the security breach,
we here at Top5 thought we'd be helpful and provide
the following list as a public service announcement:
