Yahoo, which owns Flickr, has reportedly suffered a major hack. If you’re a member of the photo sharing service Flickr, you might want to change your password as soon as possible.
Yahoo just confirmed the data breach, saying that it believes over 500 million user accounts were stolen.
News of the hack first emerged back in August when an online hacker by the name of “Peace” boasted that he had obtained 200 million Yahoo accounts from 2012 for about $1,800. Data included usernames, passwords that could be decrypted, and personal info (e.g. birth dates and email addresses).
