TechCrunch : The details are a bit sparse right now, but Yahoo has just disclosed by way of their Tumblr that they’ve detected what they’re calling a “coordinated effort to gain unauthorized access to Yahoo Mail accounts”.
Hackers are much advanced and active nowadays. After giant Google it's Yahoo now or is it the reply from Google only?
I'd say check to make sure the NSA weren't doing their weekly check however it says unauthorized access.
I see what you did there.
people use yahoo mail? that's so cute
Well, I don't know in which world you live. Many people do use yahoo mail till now too.
I live in one where a solid 90% of users use their personal emails via their ISP (which is never Yahoo) or Gmail.
Yes that is true but those 90% belong to only where you live. But there are many countries out there too buddy who uses yahoo or gmail. Anyways this is what I have seen and believe. I personally have gmail and yahoo mail both as well as my personal emails from ISP. I am active on all of them.
EVen my friends in the US and the UK. None of them use Yahoo.
It's in the top 3 most popular email services...
Many people have Yahoo accounts, but like me, they use it as a spam email when they need to sign up for those spammy newsletters and what not so their real inboxes don't get flooded.
Well that's just it right? Noone ACTUALLY uses Yahoo mail for anything of any real importance... same with Hotmail.
