    For any of our users out there who use Yahoo Mail, you should probably head over there now and change your password. Yahoo themselves shared details this morning on Tumblr that recent security attacks resulted in the theft of some Yahoo passwords and more. Here's a quote from their statement,

    It's amazing how much more often these security breaches seem to be happening with companies. Sign of the times?

    I'm glad I dont use my yahoo anymore. I only use gmail now because for some reason it just seems to be better in every way. Yahoo is something that is no longer trending with anyone.

    Yahoo has been hacked at least a dozen times since their existence, only a number of times have been publicized. They are probably least secure of all major email accounts.

    I'm getting tired of my yahoo account knocked off my phone every few months. Gmail is solid over all my devices. Never have to delete and start over with Gmail, I think you're right to abandon yahoo.

    I'm assuming this means the same for other services that go through yahoo too right? I have uverse and they have you make an email to logon and while it's att.net it goes through yahoo. So glad that is just a spam email and the one I give out when stores ask for an email
