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.

Someone logged in 8 times this month from different locations. Could be because they're using Tor. No need for me to worry, that password is out dated and no other accounts share it.

Like I previously stated that email was forwarded over a year ago,  haven't logged in since. MS is at fault since their 2FA failed to protect the account.

My computer is scanned daily and clean,  programs I don't trust are run through sand box after being scanned.

Changing the password was a very good thing to do, but I'd also recommend running a full antimalware and antivirus scan to make sure they didn't lift the credentials off of your computer. I'd recommend Malwarebytes Free and SuperAntiSpyware Free for this.

Yeah I did a full scan while in dos and then in safe mode all was clear.

Also added 2fa just to see if anyone else is going to try and access the account again.

I use a few virus and malware scanners including Malwarebytes, I learned long ago not all are created or dated equally the same.

A good deal of the reason why I haven't dropped my gmail address is the simple fact that it would be a nightmare to update every place that has that listed as my email address and I'd surely lose some contacts and such in the shuffle. My gmail has become a spamfest; every few months I have to basically go on a campaign of getting unsubscribed from newsletters and crap just to keep it manageable...

Hotmails are pretty easy to crack. I never personally used them for anything. In the days of Xronize, I remember we used to just type random ID's and try to see how many  we could crack.

Lol some of that is your mistake (you had a spy program or used your pass on a non-secure site most likely) but they should implement a system like Google/Yahoo that prevent you from login and asks for Security question/Phone when you login from a new country.

Sorry you're wrong the system was clean and like I had mentioned I hadn't accessed that account in over a year.

Gmail is the best. I've been using them since they were beta testing and you had to be invited.

It's almost common place that we're spied upon everyday. If not our emails, its our text, calls, facebook, twitter, forum comments. The list goes on..they keep collecting until they find a reason to use it.

Truth. Sad truth, but still. A few years ago before Sno.wden and WikiL eaks, what you just said would have gotten you labeled a "nutcase conspi.racy theorist." There is definitely no privacy left in mainstream products/society, but it can be accomplished. Everyday they try to shut down part of anonymity, on the web and elsewhere. That is why everyone must call/write/lobby against CISPA, SOPA, and any others that will follow.

Anyways, on topic- I also use a hotmail email account for most everything. Same reason a few of you have said already, I've had it forever and it's just rolled with me through time. I expect no real privacy, and most major accounts have some form of 2FA.
What is a good place for me to start learning about and getting an encr.ypted email service?

I didnt even notice that people still use hotmail still.

I thought everyone moved on to gmail? lol. But yeah, that does suck if you were using the hotmail as primary not dummy account.

Security issues, and personal information... all that stuff esp identity theft.

That last time I used any other mail service other than the gmail was way back in 2006. (That was a Yahoo account anyway, never ever used Hotmail in my life). That said, is there any reason why we should use Hotmail? Is it having any additional features which the Gmail is lacking?
