Yahoo e-mail hacked: Says user names, passwords stolen

User names and passwords of some of Yahoo’s email users have been stolen and used to gather personal information about people those Yahoo mail users have recently corresponded with, the company said Thursday.

Yahoo is the second-largest email service worldwide, after Google’s Gmail, according to the research firm comScore. There are 273 million Yahoo mail accounts worldwide, including 81 million in the United States.

It is not clear yet the size of the breach. We would recommend changing your password or STOP USING YAHOO!
