Yahoo and their big breach

Hi folks,

I want to give my thoughts in regards to Yahoo and their biggest breach of many millions of Yahoo accounts. While I’ve read the blogs from my RSS feeds talking about it, and also heard Steve Gibson on a recent Security Now, I left Yahoo a long time ago. While SBC let me link to my Yahoo account years ago, the things on my SBC Yahoo account are staying, but I haven’t really used that address for communication purposes in years.

Ever since I got jaredrimer.net, I slowly got things away from SBC. There are a few lists I’m on with Yahoo and SBC, one is an oldies list I look at occasionally, NBP’s E-mail list, the Clippers E-mail list, and the Los Angeles Kings E-mail list. I’ve moved everyone else over to my domain for contact.

This was done because I’m not at home checking E-mail, and SBC was not one of the addresses by choice I did not put on my phone. There are several addresses I have not put on my phone, but the important ones I have.

This was a decision i had made long before news of the Yahoo breach ever came to lite. Its recommended to abandon the account, and for the most part, I have, except for these E-mail lists which people can have.

What will the Yahoo breach do to people? Yahoo hasn’t been doing much as far as I’m aware for years. Yahoo news is still around, but even KNX has changed the way their site runs with a blog format and other video and app options through CBS.

What is really sad about this breach is that it is a two year old breach now coming to lite. If I can, I’m going to try and get these newsletters on my lists account over on jaredrimer.net and forget SBC Yahoo altogether. Next time newsletters come around, I’m going to start changing things around here.

I know that Yahoo doesn’t just power SBC global, what are other providers doing that can link their addresses to Yahoo? What are you doing with your yahoo account now?

Please sound off in the comments. The boards await you.
