I'm not sure if this is actually malware or not - there isn't much information online about the email hijacking, but Microsoft seems to think it's malware-related. Malwarebytes hasn't found anything, but I thought I'd check anyway.

If you need more information, this link explains it in full:

I don't see signs of infection there. Have you changed your Hotmail account password to stronger one? To me this looks more like a case of compromised Hotmail account.
