Default Thousands of Hotmail passwords posted

If you use Hotmail and haven't changed your password in a while, maybe you should.

If someone could look through that list, and email me my password, that would be great.

That was the initial list of 10,000. 20,000 other emails were found later that also contained some Gmail and Yahoo mail.

Also, the most common yahoo passwords to appear were "123456" and various Hispanic names.
