It helped me detect the breach in under 24 hours and helped me get my account back without MS support.
Make sure the password on the e-mail you list is different from your windows live ID password so they can't remove your e-mail. I was able to reset my password via my e-mail, remove the hacker e-mail, and change my password. They may have also changed my security question because when I called MS support the answer I gave didn't check out.
I never recieved an e-mail about another e-mail being added to my account, in fact no passwords or addresses were comprimised in my case. Does this effect your additional tip?
Reason i ask is because when i go to the link you provided to the security page i can't find an option to change my password to make it different to my Live ID password?
