In addition to the keys to the kingdom, Yahoo has now indicated up to 500 million accounts have been compromised, including your security questions. They recommend disabling them. I just did. I still left and alternative email and cellphone number for retrieving my password. Of course, if you forgot your password, just ask your neighborhood hacker.
I got this in my Yahoo email this morning. I ate at this place once in May when I was in Edinburgh. I had a steak lunch. The steak was just OK. I wouldn't recommend anyone going to Scotland to search this place out, unless every other restaurant and pub is closed. I totally forgot about this place until today.
My question is, how did they get my email address? I'm fairly certain I used a credit card for the meal, but I certainly did not leave my email address to sign-up for stuff. Why would I? I don't live there. This must be "steak sponsored" not "state sponsored" hacking. Maybe they didn't need to hack Yahoo to find out my email address. Some searching and they may happen upon it. Still, I'm not worth the effort searching for, unless you're offering free burger coupons to a local joint.
