A group of hackers on Thursday published a list of more than 453,000 log-in credentials that were allegedly stolen from a database associated with an unnamed Yahoo service.

www.macworld.com...


I went in and changed all my passwords for yahoo accounts. You can go to Yahoo's "Recent Login Activity" page and see where "you" logged in from...I guess I've been to Vietnam, Japan, Mexico and Argentina this week.

Thanks for the info. I checked my recent log-in activity and everything looks fine. I'm using a 17 character alpha/numeric password. I did update my other information such as security questions and new cell number. The check was worth my time; I honestly couldn't remember the answers to the security questions so I was able to change them while logged in.
