|Bad, Yahoo. Very Bad.|
And why did it take so long for Yahoo to inform the world about this humongous account breach? No one currently knows, as Yahoo is staying tight lipped and has so far only stated the breach was discovered during a "recent investigation". If that is true, what amount of security oversight does Yahoo incorporate in its business practices? Apparently very little, if it took Yahoo 2 years to discover that 500 million user accounts were hacked.
Glad I don't have a Yahoo account. But if you do, here is what you should consider doing to protect your personal information.
