The third major problem in several weeks hit the biggest German free e-mail provider GMX, when a hacker changed 1,625 passwords of users. Customers of the service told ZDNet that the hack occurred after opening an e-mail with a Trojan horse. Last Friday, all e-mails of 118,000 users were deleted by accident. And a few weeks ago, a "lightning strike" disabled all the file servers of the company. Full story (in German). -- ZDNet Germany
