The popular Yahoo Voices service that showcases some of the best articles, videos etc from the yahoo community was reportedly hacked on thursday morning by a group of hackers who updated the whole List on their website called d33ds.co (now appearing offline). The hackers claimed that their main motive for hacking yahoo voices was to give the company a wake up call to check their security systems.

Along with the 450,000 passwords the hackers also added a personal note that reads as follows.

We hope that the parties responsible for managing the security of this subdomain will take this as a wake-up call, and not as a threat,” the document says. “There have been many security holes exploited in webservers belonging to Yahoo! Inc. that have caused far greater damage than our disclosure.

“Please do not take them lightly. The subdomain and vulnerable parameters have not been posted to avoid further damage.”

 

Apparently their website is currently down so you cannot view the list of passwords or read their intentions personally. If you are a user of Yahoo Voices then do change your password just to be on the safer side. We believe that this work is certainly not done by “anonymous group of hackers” and these guys are someone brand new trying to establish themselves as a group of notorious hackers. It is likely that the recent DNS Changer malware might be responsible for leaking out the passwords or making their infiltration inside Yahoo popular. Do let us know what you think about this hack and share your views about the future of Internet security in general.
