Come October, Microsoft will release an update to boost security for its Hotmail service.

V3.co.uk reports that included in the update will be tools to analyze log-in history and account activity, full-site SSL security protection and more security proofs, such as mobile phone numbers and marking the user's computer as a "trusted PC." Users will now have to answer one security proof before being able to make changes to others.

In a blog post, John Scarrow, general manager of security services at Microsoft, says:

These updates help you protect your password and, in the unlikely event that a hijacker gains access to your account, provide a more secure recovery path so you will always be able to get your account back and kick the hijackers out.
