Because so many people use the same passwords across multiple sites, it's possible hackers broke in to some service that lets people use email addresses as their usernames. The hackers could have grabbed passwords stored at that service, filtered out the accounts with Yahoo addresses and used that information to log in to Yahoo's mail systems, said Johannes Buy Jimmy Choo Shoes Online Sale
Yahoo said the usernames and passwords weren't collected from its own systems, but from a third party database.

The breach is the second mishap for Yahoo's mail service in two months. In December, the service suffered a multi day outage that prompted Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer to issue an apology.
"It's an old trend, but it's much more exaggerated now because the programs the bad guys use are much more sophisticated now," says Avivah Litan, a security analyst at the technology research firm Gartner. "We're clearly under attack."
Litan said hackers appear to be "trying to collect as much information as they can on people. Putting all this stuff together makes it easier to steal Jimmy Choo Bridal Shoes Nordstrom somebody's identity."

Yahoo didn't say how many accounts have been affected. Yahoo is the second largest email service worldwide, after Google's Gmail, according to the research firm comScore.
"It's much more likely that I'd click on something from you if we email all the time," says Richard Mogull, analyst and CEO of Securois, a security research and advisory firm.
Yahoo Inc. said in a blog post on its breach that "The information sought in the attack seems to be names and email addresses from the affected accounts' most recent sent emails."
The bigger danger: access to email accounts could lead to more serious breaches involving banking and shopping sites. That's because many people reuse passwords across many sites, and also because many sites use email to reset passwords. Hackers could try logging in to such a site with the Yahoo email address, for instance, and ask that a password reminder be sent by email.
That could mean hackers were looking for additional email addresses to send spam or scam messages. By grabbing real names from those sent folders, hackers could try Giuseppe Zanotti Crystal Sandals
