Yahoo Compromised - change your password - now

Post by Bob Weir » Thu Sep 22, 2016 7:46 pm

At least 500 million Yahoo accounts hacked

Yahoo says at least half a billion users had personal information stolen from their accounts in late 2014. It appears the hackers did not steal credit card or bank account numbers, but they did manage to take names, passwords, and other private data. Ben Tracy reports. CBS News

So what should you do if you have a Yahoo account?
First and foremost, you'll want to change your password immediately. All Yahoo account holders should also change their security questions and answers. CNN Money
