Hotmail account compromised?

PostPosted by phillpark » Thu Feb 26, 2015 7:15 am

Had a text at 06:11 this morning from "MSFT" saying they thought someone else had accessed my account and that I needed to recover it and click a link.

The link looked legit, but I tried to access outlook via my app instead, and sure enough it too said my account needed recovering. I've done it, and obviously changed the password. Has anyone else had anything similar?

Had something similar on my Google account once a couple of years back.
The "attack" came from an ip in America but in reality I just think it was someone who made a mistake with their possibly similar log in details.
