Yahoo Mail Hacked Again!

aputernutJanuary 31, 2014

80 mil. accounts hacked again, this means the hackers get all your info. Not me don't use it! but was on the Today Show News. Go into your act. and change your password ASAP, and if possible login with a new act.

I wasn't prompted to reset my Yahoo password but I did anyway. Don't know if mine was hacked but if it was I hope they enjoy reading all my SPAM because that's what I use Yahoo for...a SPAM collector. Webmail is a useful tool but an attack like this demonstrates it's inherent weakness. I'll stick with Thunderbird which never been a problem.

Anyone doesn't think Google uses your information?

As I understand it, the purpose of whatever information analytics are used by Google and others is to try to tailor ad delivery. Magazines and newspapers have been doing the same thing for years, though perhaps not always with the same information.

No one tracks or cares about how many times a week YOU go to the bank or what route you take to get there. Anyone who wants to track me is more than welcome to do so.

The thing is, the alternative is a string and two tin cans. People aren't willing to ditch their smartphones, most people aren't bothered by the data accumulation aspect.
