The details are a bit sparse right now, but Yahoo has just disclosed by way of their Tumblr that they’ve detected what they’re calling a “coordinated effort to gain unauthorized access to Yahoo Mail accounts.” The good news: it doesn’t appear that Yahoo’s own servers were attacked — instead, it looks like someone is firing off a bunch of login attempts using emails/passwords secured from an unnamed “third-party database compromise.” In response to the attack, Yahoo has reset the passwords of all accounts that appear to have been affected.
