A Web site hosted by Softbank Services was shut down by Microsoft after it revealed personal information on over 100,000 of the software giant?s customers.
According to US reports, last Thursday the site invited users of Microsoft?s Money software to upgrade to Money 99 online.
A mass email was sent to the users giving each recipient a unique nine-digit registration number. If that number was then altered by one or two digits it would call up another customer?s account.
