Yahoo emails hacked

Some of you may have received spam from Yahoo email addresses over the last few weeks. This is because there has been a massive hacking of Yahoo accounts.

Hopefully no one has clicked on the link that was in that spam mail or worse, provided personal information or purchased something from it.

I recommend that you also do a complete scan of your computer with your antivirus/antispyware/antimalware programs.

Folks using apple products are not imune by the way. One of my Yahoo accounts was hacked using an iphone app!

Anyway, although the mainstream media is still not reporting this problem to the masses, I did find an online article on Forbes. Here's the link:

And if you choose not to trust the link above, then do your own independent search on "yahoo hacked" and you should be able to find it.
