Another Data Breach Reported. This Time It’s Yahoo Email

Yahoo has reported that there was an attempt to gain access to email accounts using usernames and passwords from a breach at a third-party site.

Yahoo is resetting passwords on the affected accounts and has implemented a two-step sign-in verification for users to re-secure their accounts. The two-step sign-in requires a second password that is used just the once.

What should you do?

  • If you use Yahoo, change your password even if your account wasn’t affected.
  • Change all of your passwords frequently.
  • Use a different password for every login - account, site, service - that you have.
