    Default Hacked hotmail

    Ok, I know there's almost no hope of getting back my hacked hotmail account but is there anyway I can contact my, er, contacts and tell them it's not me using it anymore?

    Hi there I do a lot of bad stuff on cyberspace basically I am a (****) what you need is advice why you got your msn account hacked in fact one of your friends played trick on you, did you that there software that copy the stored pass words of your account to the intended hacker. Or should we call it so called hacker, you can try mailing Microsoft as they have the power to overtake your account but be careful one of your friends is a foe.

    Maybe Clinton's though.

    You're an idiot.

    As for the "hacking", a: please don't use the term hack. Your password was guessed. b: in the future, keep backups of your contact list.

    b. has been noted and I will do it
    as regards a., hack is the correct term, hacking is gaining unauthorised access to data held on a computer system. Although you are right to say that on this occasion, the password was guessed.

    Always save your contact list. It is definitely a life saver. It happened to me, too. But I saved my contact list so all I had to do was import contact list to my new account and had no problems

    Actually, it's not the right term. The correct term is cracked. Hacking is modifying something from it's original form, for instance, I would hack a mail server so that it pipelines through 2 connections to send/recieve mail quicker.

    Cracking is doing bad stuff...like cracking a mail server's sysadmin password so that it lets me get access to everyone's mail.

    Edit: Also, keylogging is a definite possibility, however social engineering (talking to you to guess the right information to "recover" your password) is more likely.

    OK, 1) legally, it's hacking
    2) When I contacted those nice people at microsoft, I was given only the option of hacked account
    3) Don't even try to tell me that it isn't what it is, I might have had my account hacked (and yes, I will keep on using that term) but it doesn't mean I'm stupid, I've studied computing and IT. Most people don't know the difference between them. In both books though, the same sentence is there, and I quote "hacking is defined as unauthorised access to data held on a computer system."

    1: Legally it's electronic intrusion or trespassing

    2: Because Microsoft just offers the best3est customer service in the world, yessiree...

    3: TOO LATE, we already told you. Those books were probably wrote or edited by people who can't tell the difference. Most people can't tell the difference between two of a lot of things...

    A cracker is one who breaks into or otherwise violates the system integrity of remote machines with malicious intent...Crackers can easily be identified because their actions are malicious.

    Old-time hackers who do not condone such behavior refer to these intruders as crackers

    Eat that.
