What they failed to mention was that the original means of hacking Yahoo was discovered weeks ago and they did nothing to try to fix it. The exploit was even listed on 1337day.com. There was an issue with not encrypting connections for Yahoo Mail users that existed for several months before they finally got around to fixing it, and it still has disconnect problems when attempting to retrieve e-mail.
The service has been in absolute disarray since their new CEO took over and decided to change everything that worked into something that doesn't. And don't even get me started on the stupid placement (or non-placement) of spam and not spam buttons.
Yahoo hasn't had user data properly protected in years! What's more is that they don't adhere to their own policies and tell you what data they've collected about you at your request. So, if anyone wants to sue them, please do and try to force them to do something right for a change.
Ah and how clueless their CEO must be to have waited this long to enact any security. Not the first time they've waited. They waited several months after they forced users to switch to the newer Yahoo Mail system to enact any sort of connection encryption scheme. Regardless of user complaints, they wanted to wait until something bad happened to do anything about it. Oh look, something happened.
