They didnt reacted, and im pretty curious about what
is possible with the bug. And i actually hope that
someone can tell me about it and maybe Microsoft will
do something about it..
It's very simple, you can inject arbitrary scripting to be executed by the
user in the context of hotmail. This means that you can e.g. steal his
cookies or, if he's logged in, write emails from his account, delete his
mails and change his password.
