Important Security Update for Yahoo Mail Users

Post by gordon » Sat Feb 01, 2014 1:20 am

Hi,
Yahoo reports an email breach on 01-30-14.
It sounds like yahoo is sharing our logins and passwords with a third party?

Reason: Moved topic to Email sub-forum, since it pertains to security issues of a specific email service provider. Thanks for providing the info, Gordon!

Something that I read about the 3rd party thing is that this may be sites like the Yahoo-owned flickr that you may have given permission to access your Yahoo account.
