    A few months ago Yahoo acknowledged that a previous hacking could have resulted in millions of accounts being put at risk. E mail addresses, passwords, birthdays and other general information could be compromised. On tonight's news it was reported that as many as 1 billion accounts could have been put at risk. That's way more accounts than I would have thought could possibly be involved with Yahoo who I saw as past their prime. Who knows. After a quick search I copied the link to the story.

    It's strange mine was never touched, I signed up when AT&T partnered with Yahoo, maybe that's why. I have a complicated pass w, and even have Yahoo's photo service. Maybe the ones that were hacked were strictly Yahoo account users?
