Secure or Dump Your Yahoo Mail

3 times this week I have received an email account from a Yahoo account with a link, jumping out at me, desperately wanting me to click it. Once I do, I am sure I would be taken to a site that will dump all sorts of malicious software onto my computer.

Each of these emails have come from someone I know. Their accounts at Yahoo have been hacked. In my experience, this happens with Yahoo accounts much more frequently that any other email provider out there.

My advice, secure your account heavily, or dump your Yahoo account and go to another email provider. In terms of security, make sure you have a very strong password. One so strong that you yourself have a hard time remembering it. Make sure you change your password security questions and answers. And, make sure you set up two factor authentication for changing your password.
