Microsoft Admits Passport Security Flaw

Microsoft Admits Passport Security Flaw: "The Pakistani researcher, Muhammad Faisal Rauf Danka, determined that by typing a specific Web address that included the phrase ``emailpwdreset,'' he could seize any Passport account. He said he sent 10 e-mails to Microsoft explaining his findings but never received a response. Sohn said the company was investigating how it might have missed those reports."
Yay! Way to go, Microsoft. Nothing says "committed to security" more than ignoring 10 emails about a security flaw.
