MSN Snared in Korean Booby-Trap

Wired News: "WASHINGTON -- Microsoft acknowledged Thursday that hackers booby-trapped its popular MSN website in South Korea to try to steal passwords from visitors. The company said it was unclear how many internet users might have been victimized.
Microsoft said it cleaned the website and removed the dangerous code that unknown hackers had added earlier this week. A spokesman, Adam Sohn, said Microsoft was confident its English-language sites were not vulnerable to the same type of attack. "
