    Question Yahoo email hack?

    Hi folks,

    Both myself and a couple of friends have got spam sent out from our Yahoo accounts over the last two nights.

    Having now been sensible and checked it shows login activity in Pakistan and Thailand. Yahoo even flags it as suspicious, but didn't send me an email, ironically. I can't seem to see a way to block this.

    Just wondering if anyone else had seen this, whether it's just a brute force attack, or if Yahoo themselves have leaked accounts?

    TIA
