msn-korea-site-hosted-malware-for-days

An update from Forbes on the MSN Korea attack:

"The chronology suggests the hackers could have harvested stolen passwords from visitors to the MSN site for up to three days. But their target - passwords to game accounts - lessened the significance of the break-in since the hacker software appeared not to collect any network or banking passwords."

That assumes that the users use different passwords for their online banking account.

It should be taken as a warning shot. I say the first webmail service to offer two-factor authentication is the winner.
