Confirmation of passwords breach by the web giant Yahoo, was accompanied by an assuring statement that they are looking into the problem and possible solution as fast as possible.
A hacking group called D33DS
claims responsible for the attack. The security officers believe that the attackers might have used a well- established technique known as SQL injection
to extract the sensitive information from the database.
Other sites that sensed possible attacks asked their members to reset their passwords for extra security. An encoded good password
will always prove impossible for the hackers to decode and get the real password. bbc
