    Post Hotmail hacked.....help!!!!!!!!!

    Recently there is this guy who said he can hack any
    e-mail address ending with ".com" within 5-10 minutes.
    This happened during IRC-chat. So to prove that he can do it. I gave him my non-improtant e-mail address. the password are in alphanumeric. And the worst part is that within 7 minutes he message me privately and reveal my password.
    How does he do it and how can I prevent it.

    Your's opinion and help are really neeed. TQ.

    did u downloaded any of the picture or opened any page that the guy referred or sent u?

    this work can be done easily with a keylogger which installs itself on ur sys once u open/download the malacious page/picture/software.
    a keylogger captures all the keystrokes from ur sys and logs them in a file.In this case the guy must have configured the keylogger to send the log to him via mail.
    so in this case the SSL is of no use.

    u must see all the tasks running in the task manager and if there's any task u don't recognize, end it.
    Also remove all the registry entry by that name after that.

    Did he boast this to YOU, or to a bunch of people? I would do a heavy-duty virus scan.

    Also, this was for a 'real' email server, right? Not Hotmail or something?

    Thumbs up

    why don't u try scanning on ur sys!
    may be u find out an open port is not supposed to be open.

    may be ur firewalls aren't running properly.or if possible try running an IDS on ur sys.
    this way whatever data is going out of ur sys,u can see that.
    i don't think there's any other way for the guy to get ur passwd but from ur own sys.

    hmm....

    did you use this email address at any time after his boast?

    also, download a list of known trojan ports, open a command line prompt, type netstat -a > filename.txt then edit filename.txt and compare the open ports there to the ports on the trojan list

    This was a hotmail account, right? Did you check it between when you told him your username and when he gave you the pword? And if you DID check it, was there a mail from him? There was a Jscript hotmail bug in the news a while ago, he might have just taken advantage of it before it was patched. (Has it been patched?)

    A tip: Don't use hotmail!

    Try Postmaster instead. It's never (fingers crossed!) been hacked, mainly because few people know about it. Hotmail is an obvious target because it's big and it's Micro$oft.
