Yesterday, The Next Web reported that many Yahoo Mail users' accounts had been exploited by a lone hacker. My wife's Yahoo account seemed to have been affected by this hack, as she could no longer access her email from her iPhone, where the password has been stored and untouched for quite some time.
We managed to get her password reset via an external email account and everything is now back to normal, but it serves as a reminder to be careful when dealing with email. You never know when your account will be targeted.
Head over to The Next Web for the full story, including an update about the security hole being patched by Yahoo.
