The internet dinosaur Yahoo had a famous advertising slogan once: Do you Yahoo?
Today I recommend you do not.
Yahoo was cracked. And that was before it got cracked. You can read it here http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory/yahoo-hackers-stole-information-1b-accounts-44196851. One billion account details were copied. In the crack before half a billion were copied.
Now, I and DiaBlog have been cracked. It can happen. We are – and probably will always remain – amateurs. We do not run a billion dollar internet company with email service, server space for photos and what not. Our responsibility is infinitesimal in comparison. Yet we are doing quite a lot to stay safe.
Today, you cannot really exist without an email address. Numerous government agencies require you to have an email address. Try getting a job without, or traveling, or opening a bank account. Thus, whoever provides you with an email address should be careful. And Yahoo has proven, that they are not.
I recommend Yahoo users delete their accounts. Get a different email provider. I will not respond to Yahoo emails anymore.
