Password Security issue
Somebody hacked an account where he sent a link to the contacts and I was one of them, the linked requested to login onto ur hotmail/live account, ive put my email and password then, hours later i came to knw about the hack issue. Ive logged in to change my password however, ive noticed that the email was linked to an old phone# thus, ive requested to change the phone# which i discovered later on that it needs 24 hours to be updated and i cant change the password until the phone# is changed !! Now, if the hacker has gathered the data from the link, he can easily access my email, he cannot change my password YES but he can read my emails and maybe change any other password related to any application or services linked to my email !!!!! THESE SHOULD BE TWO DIFFERENT SUBJECTS; TILL NOW THE PHONE# IS NOT UPDATED AND I CANT CHANGE MY PASSWORD !!!!
