    Go to your yahoo account and change your password and security questions.

    Yahoo has hacked and the hacker has all data including passwords.

    Crazy, Its funny though because all these major social/email networks have been hacked in the past 2 years. You would think they would use those billions for better security

    I think it involves more accounts than that. My yahoo account was hacked yesterday and started sending spam emails to everyone of my contacts. I have now changed the password. But everyone should be careful. I dont use the yahoo voice.

    You can go to the below site and find out if your Yahoo email is on the list of emails that
    were hacked. Luckily none of mine came up.

    If your email is not listed there then it doesn't mean that they don't have your details. They may not have posted all accounts. Please change password and security questions even if your account is not listed there.

    WARNING: If your email was connected to Yahoo Voices, CHECK IT NOW. This isn't only limited to yahoo emails. My personal gmail account was compromised. It showed on the list that was given above.

    See the screen shot below. Head the warning.

    I agree it wasn't just Yahoo as well, I just had a Netzero email hacked too, and had to change my password.

    wow - that is such great news...for you.
    ...it has already been posted here (like 5 posts above) - and if you didn`t even post the list: what sense does your post make then?

    embarrassing, that they are not able to keep their data secret.

    Yep, mine was hacked as well, although they put it very nicely, saying someone had gotten my password, not that someone had hacked their system.

    I advice everyone to just change their passwords, even if it doesnt show up on the site.
