I don't know about secure or unsecure, but my yahoo account is seriously dysfunctional. I constantly get notifications I have mail, when I have none, and visa versa, no notice, and walla I have mail. It gets worse. I have numerous people who have emailed me and I never got their email, and visa versa again. Dysfunctional I say. Time to find a new email server, but who?

Holy S! they got the whole password file in tact. Fortunately I do not use the VOIP service so I'm the clear on this one.

people sure do have some weak passwords!

What the article fails to mention is that tons of these are users using gmail accounts. What are the chances many use the same password for the yahoo service as they do for their gmail.

All you dummies saying who uses yahoo.... don't get that just because your not a yahoo email user doesn't mean you are safe from this hack! hahaha

Yahoo? Does anyone still use Yahoo? I thought it was on it's way to AOL status, if it wasn't already there.

I use Yahoo, although I'm not in love with the situation that now , to comment on some articles, you can't sign in with Yahoo, AOL, etc. but have to do so with FB. Now THERE is a really vulnerable site- zero security there. Any site is only as secure as the people who use it think it is..thus, either they all are, or they all are not.

When caught hackers should get life without parol or the death penally. And business should be held liable for all losses their customers suffer.

I always thought the government(s) hired the hackers they busted. I mean, think about it - have you ever actually heard of a hacker getting time (in prison)? Nope, they simply disappear from the public eye (and the news) and are never heard from or seen again. Chances are, they live high on the hog policing the very people they used to work with.

And why not? Its like to get a job as a game designer one of the best ways to show off your work is to send in a mod of one of their games.

I know Sony supposedly hired the hackers that hacked them, I imagine they are indeed living high on the hog.

Let's reserve the international pariah sanction of the death penalty for crimes like torturing people to death, and try to put a little perspective on the offense.

No one should go to prison for life unless someone's life was taken.

No one should suffer out of all proportion to what they did.

But I agree completely that companies with lax computer security should be held liable for all the losses their customers suffer from the predictable breaches that their poor practices have caused.

totally but how do you quantify the losses or even know that you were hacked.

Trying to scam money from innocent people is a threat.
Makes one wonder just who's really responsible for this.

AOL is actually the least popular email client atm. They went obsolete after dial-up disappeared. Yahoo has 10 times as many users as AOL. I find the older demographic tends to lean towards AOL. Honestly, you should be questioning why AOL is still around.
12:09 PM on 07/12/2012
Yep. Only people I know who still use AOL are my parents (in their 70s).

Good point. In my case I live in an area that only had dial up internet access until about 2008. Couldn't even get broadband because of the old style wiring in the rural poles. As such I had AOL and an aol email address. When Verizon finally wired my rural township in that year I got FIOS and abandoned AOL. Problem was the old AOL email address that I had had for 12 years. Pain in the rear but I switched everything over to my new Verizon email address and I have 99% of everything through that address.

I retained the AOL homepage more out of convenience than anything else. I still have the old AOL email address. That account generates an enormous amount of spam and has been hacked several times. My verizon account gets zero spam - or should I say zero spam gets through. The only activity on my aol email are several contacts (newsletters, alumni stuff) that were problematic for me to switch.

It's great as a bogus acct where you know the person you give the address to will spam you.
