An anonymous reader writes: Documents seen by CNET UK suggest thousands of usernames and passwords for Hotmail, Google and Yahoo accounts have been illegally posted to the Internet. Login credentials for accounts ending with yahoo.com, hotmail.com, gmail.com, msn.com, live.com and hotmail.fr were seen. Users of these services are strongly encouraged to immediately change their passwords. Usernames and passwords for Google's Gmail service could also provide hackers with access to users' YouTube, Blogger, Google Docs and Google Talk accounts, as these services are all owned by Google and often work under a single login ID.
