Hackers broke into the webmail servers of Yahoo through a hole in their sub domain architecture. Then, to rub it in, they then posted usernames and passwords of over 453,000 users along with information from other webmail clients such as GMail and Hotmail. Is you’re part of the list? Here’s how to find out.
Go to a special verification site set up by Securi to check. Input your email, and it’ll let you know one way or another. If you find yourself with a compromised email, what do you do? That’s the simple part. Just change your password. Which you should make a regular habit of doing three of four times a year anyway.
