I am trying to login to Windows Live, and I get the message my password has expired and I'm getting redirected to Live website.
The address looks valid: https://login.live.com/login.srf
But I get the message:
The Windows Live Network is unavailable from this site for one of the following reasons:
This site may be experiencing a problem
The site may not be a member of the Windows Live Network
Anyways, I am wondering if it is possible my system has somehow been compromised. My worries are that some malicious program could have created a fake DNS entry on my local machine for live.com.
The IP address I see from a ping to
login.live.com is 126.96.36.199.
I checked my hosts file but it looks clean. Please tell me if the hosts file is the only place where a DNS entry can be forced in Windows (Windows 7 to be exact).
