Hotmail inserts new security measures

One of the reasons that made me change my email provider (from Hotmail to Gmail) was the problem of Spam, a very common practice that was beginning to intensify as a result of the infection of the emails of friends who sent you. spam. The Hotmail team has put the batteries in and launched some security measures to begin to eliminate these practices. As you all know, Hotmail already includes its spam and identity theft system, but as it often happens in these systems, it does not always distinguish between good and bad, so Hotmail has launched an option that will allow us to indicate if it is a real friend and report that he was hacked, in this way we will avoid a possible exclusion of our friend. If the contact in question has already been blocked before we sent the annotation, once the system has been sent, a recovery process will start to return the account intact to the affected user. Other measures they have adopted is the permanent blocking of the less secure and common passwords, that is, the classic 12345, 123, 123456789, etc. In this way they want to avoid identity theft problems.
