Yahoo e-mail accounts are getting hacked

Have you seen some strange looking e-mails from people who use Yahoo e-mail? Over the past few months, two of my associates have had some hack into their Yahoo e-mail accounts. The hackers are sending SPAM to everyone in the address books. The e-mails are simple: a short hyperlink (who knows where it goes. I didn't click on it)

This recent phenomenon reminds me of my Facebook story.
If you're not using a secure and unique password on all your online accounts, then you're setting yourself up for problems in the future. It's only a matter of time before some hacker decides to hack into your e-mail account. Don't let that happen. Make sure to always use a secure and unique password on all your accounts, especially in those that deal with personal and sensitive information and financial access.
