Hotmail hacked – Please read this!

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

Most of our students use the internal Monash email so we should be ok, but if you have students who communicate with you via Hotmail can you please pass this on and tell to use the Monash email in future.

If you use Hotmail for important communication (eg research) you might want to follow up to make sure any recent email has arrived.
