    An unknown hacker group has posted the details of 4,50,000 usernames and passwords online. It claims that the details were acquired from a Yahoo server. The news website, The Ars Technica reported that the hacking group calls itself as D33DS Company.

    The group has hacked into a subdomain of the Yahoo website. From this unidentified subdomain, they have retrieved unencrypted accounts details.

    In Singapore, a Yahoo spokesperson has declined to comment regarding this. The affected accounts seem to belong to the VOIP service known as Yahoo Voice. This service runs on the Yahoo Messenger.

    The original claim was made on the website of the hacking group, d33ds.co. This was later made unavailable. The website has been registered in February. Voices is not the only service that has been hacked. In the recent months, many services have been hacked. LinkedIn was hacked and almost 6.4 million passwords were leaked online.

    Have a Yahoo account? It is recommended that you log on to your account and change the password.
