A lot can happen for sure, but i tried one myself, to redirect the request to some other webpage.
One can make a fake hotmail page asking for password storing it locally in a text file and then again redirect to the
original hotmail page.
Usint this method one could steal passwords of hotmail/MSN users.
We have all see previously people making hotmail looking page, asking you to first login through it, or asking you to
send your login/pass along with the login name with the person you want to get hacked (all nasty scams like that).
Now if it is not fixed they will have an easy way to trick them by asking them to visit hotmail new policy at :
And then have a fake setup to trick them entering their passwords at:
