Default Does anyone still use Yahoo?

Yesterday they announced 500 million accounts were stolen in 2014.

Quote:
"The account information may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (the vast majority with bcrypt) and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers," Yahoo said in a statement.

Yahoo urges users to change their password and security questions and to review their accounts for suspicious activity.

Sadly, my wife. She can't let go...she does have a Google acct., but hardly uses it.

I still have mine, but it's all junk.

I've got a "spare" email account with Yahoo. It's my throw-away account.

fantasy football is the only reason I still use my yahoo account.


So unless they go into my team and drop Cam Newton off it this season, I don't really care

Yahoo is still hip and relevant compared to the many many people I know who still have AOL email accounts.

I had to sign up for Yahoo to get into flickr, but it also works as a junk email for signing up with trashy websites like Nasioc and DonkeyChimpGangBangers.org.

Yep I have two junk accounts with them. Haven't touched them in 5 years or so.

Anyway to find if your account was hacked? It would nice to know the passwords so I can access them. They were both used for the password reset of the other.

I had a junk account for years but disabled it years ago after it was compromised.

I've used g-mail for 10 years and have had zero issues.

Google has already read all of our emails and sold the info to buyers. Kinda makes it more difficult for 3rd party hackers to make money on it.

Seriously, I bet google is making an order of magnitude more money than the schmuck who got a couple K for his hack.

Maybe we should go back to just hand writing letters.

I'm pretty "meh" about data breaches these days. If someone reads my emails, can see my purchasing history, knows my medical information...bah, don't care all that much. On the financial front it's annoying but financial institutions are quite good at rectifying issues these days. I had my cc compromised a couple times when I was traveling for work and it never amounted to more than a minor annoyance.

Of course there are some nightmare scenarios financially...recovering money spent via credit cards/debit cards/account transfers has gone well for me but full on identity theft situations that ruin credit would be tremendously sucky. Yet, eh, @#$% it. I'm not going to go as far as to post my credit card numbers, passwords, and social security number right here but when I hear about things like email accounts being hacked I'm pretty nonplussed these days.

The hackers probably know more about me than me now, since they probably remember my Yahoo login.

Please do go on. I wasn't even aware I've posted more than like 10 posts in the last two months, much less anything about the career criminal.

And in the span of 10 minutes you've posted twice about her.

Twice huh? Not counting replying to you?

I didn't know you were so sensitive to making jokes about Hillary's email, thought that was pretty standard material for jokes these days.

Oh no! Hopefully this won't negatively affect the comments section on their news articles.
