Compromised E-Mail ID

meatme | Oct 17, 2006 04:33 PM

I created a Hotmail e-mail ID specifically for registration on the new Chowhound site, and have used it for no other purpose. The ID does not appear in "my CHOW," nor is it something that should be easy to guess, nor have I used the same user name @ other domains.

I just checked the Hotmail Inbox for this ID and found a phishing message, as well as a rejection message indicating that a phisher had used my new ID to send spam to other users.

Has Chowhound/CHOW security perhaps been breached?
