Report: 250 million Microsoft customer service and support records exposed on the web
https://www.comparitech.com/blog/information-security/microsoft-customer-service-data-leak/
MS states that they have contacted the users effected. I didn't get any notification.
Wonder if that means I'm not effected?
Let's hope so Bob, but only the guys at Microsoft can say for sure.

According to that article, Customer notification may still be ongoing.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
