Yahoo data breach exposes 400,000 user names and passwords

Last month it was LinkedIn who was making the news due to a data breach that exposed millions of user names and passwords, and this month it is Yahoo.

It seems as though 400,000 user accounts and passwords have been exposed in the recently discovered breach, though it may be a while before the severity is truly known.

Our suggestion is to change passwords everywhere you might have used the same one as you used on Yahoo. In fact, just update your passwords.

If you are having a hard time keeping up with multiple sites, accounts and passwords, consider a password keeper or vault. Something like LastPass might work well for you.
