My Hotmail Account was Hijacked

A word of warning to those using free web-based e-mail:
Apparently it's not that hard to hack the password of a Hotmail/Yahoo/Google e-mail account. I did a quick internet search for "hotmail hacked," and came up with a page full of how-to articles. This is pretty disturbing, because Microsoft Money uses the same username and password as Hotmail, and if you log into MS Money while online it saves your financial information on a Microsoft server somewhere.
