Telecom advises Kiwi caution following possible Yahoo Xtra security threat…

Telecom has warned Kiwis that Yahoo is experiencing an email security threat, which the telco has reason to believe may have compromised some Yahoo Xtra email customers’ accounts.

It appears that as a result of this threat, attempts at unauthorised access of users’ email accounts have been made.

At this stage however, Telecom insists it has no evidence that this account information has been used and customers have not reported any issues.

But as a preventative measure, Yahoo will be blocking those accounts that they have identified as compromised until the customer resets their password – and so re-secures their account.

Customers whose accounts have been blocked and who want guidance on how to reset their passwords can find it at www.telecom.co.nz/emailpasswordchange.
