My email accounts in Yahoo and Gmail have been compromised. My twitter account was deleted. If you want to contact me, please use the email found in my Resume.
Yahoomail secret questions are useless
I have changed my security/secret questions on Yahoo. But when I tested it, I noticed that there was a “This is not my question” link. When I clicked on the link my old and compromised secret questions were displayed! BIG FAIL!
My twitter account still exists. The username and email was changed to “wenbertdelrosa“. Please note that any updates from that account does not anymore come from me.
Same here, this happened with one of my friends. Because the guy trying to hack knows the birthday and answer to the older security question, he always gets in, irrespective of how many times she updates new security questions.
This is stupid! If you figure out a way to solve this issue let me know as well.
@Mohit I am not sure if there is anything we can do about it. Yahoo needs to address this problem. They could just remove the “This is not my question” link. I don’t understand why they have to put that there in the first place. I have contacted them about this and I got no reply.
This really sucks because I have been using my yahoo email for more than 10 years already!
Anyway, right now, I am using the email found in my resume and accessing it through POP. If you want you can use Gmail, it has the capability to access other mailboxes.
