I don't think that article mentions it, but MSN in Korea is *not* run by Microsoft, but by a third party company.
Just word of this without all the facts would scare other msn users to change or even not sign up for them.
"It said another company that operates the MSN Korea site apparently failed to apply necessary software patches, leaving its server computers vulnerable."
Supposedly this went undetected for days before they realized what was going on. From the AP:
|Password-stealing software planted by hackers was active on Microsoft's popular MSN Web site in South Korea for days before the world's largest software company learned about the break-in and removed the computer code. |
Well for a linux user, this made my day :)

It does mantion it, this is logical step for M$, blame it on somebody else.
What does that company has to do with the server? They are managing the site, not the servers...I mean if the server's secure even if the site has a button saying [ hack me ] nothing's gonna happen. And even if it was their fault (which I higly doubt) they failed to run "windows update" sheeesh. Billy you're pathetic.
BTW - great PR for WebSense....
Another prime example of how weak MSN really is.
If Microsoft is so weak why are they still on the top?

Really a surprise. Who is wrong, Hacker or MSN? Internet users do not want such things happen.

They have all the money? :)
Will MS ever get anything right?
I'm so new here [first message] that I hope you will bear with me please. I don't even know if this forum is interested in WEBTV.net aka Msntv.com, which is my first and main question before I ask another.
This is being posted here because I did NOT see any remarks about same when I registered.
TIA for any help.
