Not much to celebrate for Telecom customers


Widespread problems on their XT mobile network as well as yet another (we’ve lost count?) hack into the Yahoo!Xtra email

Yahoo have advised us that they are experiencing an email security threat, which we have reason to believe may have compromised some Xtra email customers? accounts.

It appears that as a result of this threat, attempts at unauthorised access of users? email accounts have been made. ?

At this stage we have no evidence that this account information has been used.? However, as a preventative measure, Yahoo will be blocking those accounts that they have identified as compromised until the customer resets their password ? and so re-secures their account.

If you are required to change your password at the time you try to log into your email, we strongly recommend that you follow the password reset process.

Seriously, if you have an email account and you still haven’t realised it is time to change, you really deserve all the pain that comes with it.
