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.

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.
