I used to have two Yahoo accounts and am down to one, which is being phased out (Gmail is my main). The truth is, all you need to do is change your password, along with any other sites where you use the same password/email combo. Then you're as safe as you were before the hack. And these hacks, while not commonplace, could happen to any site. But because of the PR nightmare, they'll continue to hemorrhage money. And while we didn't know the full size, this was in the news over a year ago. People already knew it was likely their account was hacked. No big loss - Yahoo's been circling the drain for a while now - but it's actually not the worst site otherwise. Their finance and stock market section(s) are as good as any free service out there, and I prefer their sports to ESPN.

Most people have switched to gmail. Yahoo was popular during the Askjeeves MySpace era. Those days have long past

Actually, this reminds me I need to tell my mom to switch to Gmail. She doesn't purchase stuff online, so I don't think anything meaningful could be compromised anyway. But it never hurts to be careful.

Not true. It's not just as open as shut as this. They hack download info and steal all your information. Name, important info, addresses, bills, corporate docs, personal docs. Research it, sell it, blackmail people. Billions of peoples info was stolen.

Every once in awhile, my Microsoft account has a login attempt from someplace like Thailand or India. They had one successful login, but were stopped by the "confirmation code to email" deterrant, something I used to revile as a waste of time,, but now am glad they have.

Been changing my passwords ever since.

Yeah, this sounds like something security practices on the user end won't stop.

Not good.. These hackers must have serious funding, and be making serious coin to go this far.

I meant in terms of your Yahoo account, and others where you potentially use the same email/PW combo. If you don't have this more sensitive info linked to or sent through your email account, no, they don't have access to them. But I should have been more clear. If you do have those things in emails and such, then you're correct.
