Yahoo! has revealed that Yahoo! Mail was the target of a cyber attack. Yahoo! provided the following announcement to help users understand the attack:

What we’re doing to protect our users:

We are resetting passwords on impacted accounts and we are using second sign-in verification to allow users to re-secure their accounts. Impacted users will be prompted (if not, already) to change their password and may receive an email notification or an SMS text if they have added a mobile number to their account.

We are working with federal law enforcement to find and prosecute the perpetrators responsible for this attack.

We have implemented additional measures to block attacks against Yahoo’s systems.

If you want to feel more secure about your Yahoo! Mail, here is a guide to changing your Yahoo! Mail password.

1. Visit Your Yahoo! Account Info Page
