Great for the site, I wonder how much strain this put on the servers hosting Neowin?

BBC Always links the external sites in the sidebar.

Is the hotmail link on the sidebar a link to the phishing site? :shiftyninja:

LOL @ "technology blog"

Cracks me up......

I'd call it a type of community blog. Neowin isn't an accredited news source, so its hard to describe.

I'll let you guys know tomorrow how general media attention will be :p

About the leaked passwords: I bet we're gonna see a whole new series of chain mail asking you to change your password and forward it to 30 friends or you will get killed by Bill Gates in the next 24h.

Nice of us to get a mention on these news sites :)

The accounts are obviously phished accounts that are on the list. Some of the accounts on the list are not correct.

For instance:

aroncf@hotamil.com:password (Incorrect Domain)

ararat973@hoymail.com:password (Incorrect Domain)

aroru83:password (No domain name at all)

arq_rdg37:password (Again, no domain)

If these were taken from Microsoft surely they would all be correct :)

So those of us who haven't been silly enough to be trapped by these should be okay :)
