Yahoo Mail victim of cyber-attack

Posted: Updated:

It's not just major retailers getting hacked these days, Yahoo Mail is the most recent target of a cyber-attack.

The search engine revealed in a blog post Thursday that hackers tried to log into several e-mail accounts with stolen usernames and passwords, but have not yet released information on how many accounts were impacted.

In that blog post, Yahoo assures users that passwords for impacted users have been reset.

Yahoo is working with federal law enforcement to investigate the attack.
