The lapse in security was almost certainly on your end. If they have your email password then I'd be careful with your coins and make sure your comp is safe

I'm major on security which is why each email has a unique long password. I blame MS, I never used that email nor log in to check it,  everything was forwarded.

Yeah, but long passwords won't mean shit for keyloggers. It's weird then. I can't see how it was a lapse on hotmail's end. There must've been someplace or somehow you slipped up.

I find hotmail aka outlook to be the best. Never had any issues with them, and I love the sweeping feature.

A lot of people do, so don't beat yourself up about it. There are a lot of reasons not to, for example, if you know a password has been compromised, you don't have to change it in a dozen different places. Most importantly though, you don't want to put your email's (or even worse, bank's) security in a 3rd party's (like a job site) hands.

Wait a second when you people say "hotmail" are you really talking about the relatively new Microsoft Outlook webmail? I have been experimenting with that and like it just fine.

You are really popular! hacked about 8 times? (You don't use proxies,right? ) , don't blame it all on them though and you better scan/change similar passwords as I doubt this is a hotmail vulnerability.

Well Hotmail was not secure and it's probably still not secure as gmail.
Check temper data exploit, several thousand accounts got hacked that time.

That exploit was back in 2012. Don't think that's relevant anymore.
Hotmail was not vulnerable to the heartbleed bug btw. Gmail was.

Yeah Because Windows/IIS doesn't use SSL.

I stopped using Hotmail since Gmail introduced 2FA.

Not a fan of their scanning all emails though ...

Neither am I, which is why I've stuck with hotmail/outlook.  I assume though that all the emails are scanned no matter who you use.

I used gmail for a while but found it to be a pain in the ass, I also had my account suspended. Couldn't be bothered to get the account back after that.
