Is Hotmail That Vulnerable?

Last September 9, my Hotmail was attacked by a Trojan virus.
My last log in date was September 8 and I thought that my network was well-protected by Kaspersky.
This is not the first time that my Hotmail was hacked/attacked by a virus.
The first one was in 2005 when I clicked on a link sent by a “friend.”
The link was able to know my password and changed it.
Upon realizing that the sender was not really my friend but a virus, I changed my password.

It’s always my habit to log off my accounts after using them so I have no idea how my hotmail got infected.
I researched about viruses in Hotmail and I found out that I was not alone in this predicament.
What made me more anxious about the virus attack was the sending of harmful links to my contacts, WordPress included.
I use Hotmail to post entries on WordPress.

A month before, three of my friends were also victims of this virus.
One chatted with me in Tagalog so the culprit was a Filipino.
Two chatted with me in a program-like conversation so they must be robots and not real persons.
The web is not safe and we are not really protected by anti-virus software.


Virus Attack

My hotmail was infected with Trojan virus.
I could not log on to my hotmail account this morning.
Worse, this virus sent a link to my WordPress account.
Embarrasing and infuriating!
To those who clicked the link posted by the virus last Sept. 9, my apologies.
It is never my intention to spread virus.
I don’t know how that happened, my Kaspersky is still working.
