So if you haven’t changed any password that’s similar to your old Yahoo account you definitely should think about doing that today.
That’s because according to a report from the guys over at ZDNet, Yahoo has suffered yet another data breach.
According to the site, Yahoo has emailed some of their users in which they are warning their users that hackers have used some forged cookies in order to access customer accounts.
ZDNet claim to have received a copy of that email, some which includes the following:
Our outside forensic experts have been investigating the creation of forged cookies that could allow an intruder to access users’ accounts without a password. Based on the ongoing investigation, we believe a forged cookie may have been used in 2015 or 2016 to access your account.
The investigation has identified user accounts for which we believe forged cookies were taken or used. Yahoo is in the process of notifying all potentially affected account holders,” a spokesperson confirmed.
As of yet, there are no details about how many users have been affected, or how they have been affected, however, we would advise you to be precautious over your passwords and get changing any accounts that use similar emails or passwords.
