    It took Redmond 1 day to kill a threat that allowed users with a Firefox add-on (Tamper Data) to remotely reset the password of a Hotmail account and allowing them to access the outgoing HTTP request, then modify the data.

    Microsoft was notified April 20, 2012, applied the fix April 21, 2012, then publicized it April 27, 2012
