Drill into specifics:
And set policies to automatically remediate users we find at risk:
Last week, Alex Simons mentioned in this blog that Microsoft had just published our 20 th Security Intelligence Report . In that report we explained that we detect more than 10 million credential attacks every day across our identity systems. This includes millions of attacks every day where the username and password are correct, but we detect that the person attempting to log in is a cyber-criminal. So while 33 million Hotmail username/password pairs in the wild is definitely important to us, it is a relatively small volume, less than half of what we process in an average week, and a drop in the bucket compared to the more than 4 billion credentials we detected being attacked last year. We hope this helps you understand how those articles you saw relate to your identity security – and how we're using credential lists (and a lot of other signals) to keep your account safe. And hey – if *you* ever want to contribute compromised credentials you've found, or any other security issue, email@example.com is the right place to begin the process of reporting them and beginning a secure transfer. But please, don't send us creds in email! Once we get your contact info we'll work with you to make appropriate arrangements. Thanks, Alex Weinert [ @alex_t_weinert ]
