Beware of 'Your Hotmail Account services has expired' Phishing Scam

Security researchers from Malwarebytes have discovered a phishing email making the round stating that the recipient Hotmail account has expired and it has been upgraded to Outlook.com.The email goes as follow:
Security Change
Dear User,
All Hotmail customers have been upgraded to Outlook.com. Your Hotmail Account services has expired.
Due to our new system upgrade to Outlook. In order for it to remain active follow the link Sign in Re-activate your account to Outlook. account.live.com
Thanks,
The Microsoft account team

Once the recipient click on the link, he/she is sent to a fake website looking exactly like the page of Outlook.com. Researchers discovered that the page is hosted on a compromised website. They also discovered that the link in the email is broken and does not point directly to the fake website. Cybercriminals behind the campaign will surely correct this and internet users should be careful.
