Cyber Hijackers Target Hotmail Users

Hotmail users have been attacked by a group of Spanish email hijackers, who have managed to hack into millions of free accounts. The 'cyber hijackers', as they are now called, erased all email messages and contacts in several hotmail accounts, with the exception of a 'ransom' message — in Spanish — that demands an unspecified amount of money, in exchange of the lost information. Internet security firm, Websense, has warned all hotmail users of this new wave of 'cyber extortion', but has not published any solution to the problem yet.
