There is a very serious and stupid vulnerability or badcoding in Hotmail / Passport's (.NET Accounts)
I tried sending emails several times to Hotmail / Passport contact addresses, but always met with the NLP bots.
I guess I don't need to go in details of how cruical and important Hotmail / Passport's .NET Account passport is to anyone.
You name it and they have it, E-Commerce, Credit Card processing, Personal Emails, Privacy Issues, Corporate Espionage, maybe stalkers and what not.
It is so simple that it is funny.
All you got to do is hit the following in your browser:

From that url, you can reset the password and I don't think I need to say anything more about it.
