We were informed by Yahoo back in September that a 2014 Hack by a "state sponsored actor" left more than 500 million accounts compromised. Today we found out about a second Yahoo hack this time double the accounts were accessed and this hack was carried out by a totally different group in 2013. This means that possibly more than 1 Billion accounts were affected. If your account was one that was hacked you should have received a notification from Yahoo. You will no longer be able to use unencryped security questions to access your locked out account. Obviously if you are a yahoo user your should immediately change your password if you have not already done so from the last hack.
