We just can't win...  I have a confirmed case where an @hotmail.com
participant password was compromised on 9-Sep-1999.  I'm aware of th
recent yahoo-reported <style> exploit, and it looks like this or some
other hole is exploitable.

It doesn't appear that this exploit is widely-known, there haven't 
been an unusual number of @hotmail.com password requests or retire's
taking place today or yesterday, but I'm still concerned.

Fascist logging is on, and if things start to look wonky, I'll disable
account maintenance on @hotmail.com addresses again.
