Outlook Users in China Face 'Man-in-Middle' Attack

Chinese users of Microsoft Corp's Outlook email service were subject to a hacking attack at the weekend, just weeks after Google Inc's Gmail system was blocked in China, an online censorship watchdog said. People using email clients like Outlook, Mozilla's Thunderbird and apps on their phone with the SMTP and IMAP email protocols, which are used to send and receive messages, were subject to a "man-in-the-middle" attack, said China-based GreatFire.org.
