Expert hacks Hotmail in one line of code

Author: JT Smith

Kelly McNeill writes "Twice this month, Internet security consultant Jeremiah Grossman, 24, poked gaping security holes in Hotmail and Passport, Microsoft's free Web-based e-mail and identity-authentication services. It took just three lines of code for Grossman to breach Hotmail filters and access Passport ID and credit card data. The second time it took just one line. And the former Yahoo security auditor says he could do it again given 8 hours."
