Yahoo hacked, account details leaked

Yahoo confirm that data associated with over 500 million user accounts was stolen in late 2014.
The account information may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (the vast majority with bcrypt) and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers.
Time to change your password on Yahoo, and it would be a good idea to change your security questions and answers too.
Financial details or credit card numbers are not believed to be included in the breach.
