Yahoo hacked, 450,000 passwords posted online
More at link via CNN:
Hackers posted online what they say is login information for more than 450,000 Yahoo users.
The hack, which of course was conducted anonymously, was meant to be a warning, according to the Web page where the documents were dumped.
Yahoo confirmed on Thursday the hack of Yahoo Voices, part of its news service, saying "approximately 400,000" usernames and passwords were stolen. But in a written statement, the company said that less than 5% of the breached Yahoo accounts had valid passwords.
