Yahoo hit in worst hack ever, 500 million accounts affected

TechIf you have a Yahoo account, you need to change your password immediately. I mean right now.

The hack, which took place in 2014, revealed names, email addresses, phone numbers, birth dates and, in some cases, security questions and answers, Yahoo said in a press release. Encrypted passwords, which are jumbled so only a person with the right passcode can read them, were also taken, according to Cnet.
