Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, and Others Also Hit by Phishing Attack



In yesterday's attack, the list of comprised Hotmail accounts were limited to those where the usernames started with the letter "A" or "B."   The most recent list of compromised accounts includes login credentials for Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Earthlink, and Comcast users, so regardless of whether or not you think your account was compromised, today would be a good day to change the password on whichever webmail service you currently use. Better safe than sorry!

I haven't heard about this. Can you explain more about this attack how they would have gotten our password information. I do use g*mail.
Thanks for keeping us up on all this.
