Yahoo Japan targeted by hackers

  • Hackers may have stolen the login names of up to 22 million Yahoo Japan customers, it was revealed on Monday.

    The attack was spotted late last week after a file of ID details was stolen, according to Yahoo Japan.

    However, the file did not include passwords or other information required to re-set a password or confirm an identity.

    Yahoo Japan, jointly owned by mobile firm Softbank and Yahoo, has still urged customers to change their passwords.
