Hotmail phishing / spam | Joachim De Zutter
It came to my attention that a Hotmail (Windows Live Mail) account that wasn't used by the person who created it for a long time was compromised and used to send unsolicited bulk e-mail (spam) to all mail addresses in the contact list as well as others.

In the Drafts folder messages like the following were found, dated 29th of April 2011:
Subject contains: Dear friend !
I have a Japanese friend told me that he worked in a Japanese company. I 
visited the company he worked for and found the products very favorable. 
And there are many product versions, such as the European version, 
American version, and the Asian version and so on. All company's products 
take photos for the true products. I suggest you should have a look in 
this website. There is the company website :http://www.wto-business.com , 
You can enjoy a lot of benefits in the second shopping time. Thank you !


"A Directory Harvest Attack or DHA is a technique used by spammers in an attempt to find valid/existent e-mail addresses at a domain by using brute force. The attack is usually carried out by way of a standard dictionary attack, where valid e-mail addresses are found by brute force guessing valid e-mail addresses at a domain using different permutations of common usernames." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Directory_Harvest_Attack

"Phishing is a way of attempting to acquire information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Communications purporting to be from popular social web sites, auction sites, online payment processors or IT administrators are commonly used to lure the unsuspecting public. Phishing is typically carried out by e-mail spoofing or instant messaging, and it often directs users to enter details at a fake website whose look and feel are almost identical to the legitimate one. Phishing is an example of social engineering techniques used to deceive users, and exploits the poor usability of current web security technologies. Attempts to deal with the growing number of reported phishing incidents include legislation, user training, public awareness, and technical security measures." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phishing
