    Excite mail exploit

    Excite in web mail hijack drama
    By James Middleton [21-03-2002]
    Portal leaves users' mail exposed
    Security watchers have identified a vulnerability in the web mail service of internet portal Excite that allows for the hijacking of a user's account.

    Simply pasting this into a web browser would drop the attacker straight into the victim's mailbox with complete control of the account

    Shhhhhhhhh. Don't tell them. Oh great, now the cats out of the bag. Every skr1ptz k1dd13 around will be asking us for Excite mail hacks now. I suppose Excite and Hotmail are in competition now.

    I was checking out their demo and I saw this and thought it was funny

    To avoid stupid questions : this does NOT work with HOTMAIL accounts.
    People asking how to hack hotmail accounts must be a plauge of the net.
