Cheers me101 for this email he received from "Passport", shame I didn't get it :(
Looks like at least microsoft are getting the right idea, any users who have a Microsoft passport account should be getting this email, excellent idea, wish they would do this to all Microsoft Passport users as this would get the word out to have your browsers and your computer secure.
