Can someone please tell me if there is anything wrong with either of the two screenshots below. I was one of those caught up in this weeks email kerfuffle and although the account hacked was not my main email account and only involved six addresses in my address book it has made me unsure about using Hotmail. I changed my password and even uninstalled and reinstalled WLM. After reading an article on http and https I started noticing that when I signed in to WLM and wanted to see my email, in the Hotmail sign in screen that appeared the address was only http as in the screenshot here.

If I added the s in the address bar on this page and changed it to https I would then get the following sign in screen.

Now my question is, are both these sites valid or has WLM itself been corrupted and somehow I am being redirected to a fake sign in screen?. Thanks in advance but i'm a bit confused here.
