July 13 , 2012
Yahoo is investigating a breach of its system that may have exposed 450,000 user IDs and passwords.
According to U.S. security firm Trustedsec, the attack seems to have originated from servers connected to Yahoo Voices, a user-generated section of the site.
The hacking group D33DS has claimed to be behind the attack.
The hackers are believed to have used a well-established technique known as an SQL injection to extract the information.
