“A vulnerability was reported in Microsoft .NET Passport, also affecting Hotmail user accounts. The simple flaw allows an attacker to change any person’s password to an arbitrary value. The attacker can then gain access to the victim’s accounts, as well as to the victim’s personal information (if any is stored w/ Passport). Muhammad Faisal Rauf Danka posted a note to the Full-Disclosure security e-mail list after multiple unsuccessful attempts to contact Microsoft.”
And these are the guys who want to manage our identities? Oh pleeeease….
