Due to the fall of Live ID, the main Microsoft Internet services were disconnected

    The Hotmail email service and the Windows Live Messenger IM pager, Microsoft's two most important web services, were unavailable to all users for approximately six hours due to disabling the Microsoft Live ID service. MSN.com, Xbox Live, and other sites that use the Live ID to identify visitors have been hit hard.

    The "accident" happened on Tuesday morning, US time, that is, about 36 hours ago. Users could not log in under their own names, and those who managed to log in before the technical failure no longer had the opportunity to log out.

    Coincidentally, the technical problems of Windows Live happened on the day it was officially unveiled.Windows Server 2008. It is on this system, according to Microsoft, that a significant part of the Windows Live infrastructure is based.
