Wednesday nearly 400,000 Yahoo user’s accounts were compromised. As soon as the news broke out on Thursday, a panic sparked among the users. Many of them searched for PC back up software so that they can restore their important data in case their computers are hacked. D33D posted those breached account information in their web site. D33D is not known for its hacking potential but with this incident surely they should be black listed.
Among the posted user names and passwords some of Hotmail, AOL, Verizon, MSN accounts were also included. Ironically this security breach occurred just one month after LinkedIn attack. So people are not feeling safe with their personal information and the panic that broke out is just not a panic rather it’s a concern for all of us. However a yahoo spokesman said that most of the posted passwords are belonged to network contributor and only five per cent of them are still valid.
