    Yahoo/flickr Hacked

    Yahoo have announced that they have been hacked and that 500 million email addresses / flickr accounts are compromised.

    If you have a yahoo or flickr account, it is recommended you change your password immediately.

    From the news item I heard on the radio today it appears that it has remained unreported for quite some time.
    An "immediate" change of password may already be too late.

    Thankfully I don't have an account with either.

    Wonder what's going to happen when facebook suffers a major leakage of personal information ---- or has it already happened but due to privacy laws nobody has been told yet.

    They said on the "nioose" it was a state-sponsored hack, but that ?Yahoo didn't want to name them.


    (I think that'll do)
    CC, Image editing OK.

    Hmm! Lark!!-y I ignored that advice a couple of days ago. Did not re-set pwd. Used a different browser.
    Got into mail no (?apparent) trouble.

    This was covered before earlier in the year
    So If this hack was 2 years ago changing password earlier this year will suffice

    Someone around here really needs to change their avatar not their password.
