Yahoo Security Notice December 14, 2016

BT Yahoo Email users should read the Yahoo statement.

 

https://help.yahoo.com/kb/account/SLN27925.html?impressions=true

 

Can the moderators please find out if BT Yahoo accounts have been affected and issue an equivalent BT Yahoo statement.

Given that BT have issed this notice

and that BTYahoo email accounts are only re-badged Yahoo accounts I would think it fair to assume that what Yahoo is posting is relevant to BTYahoo accounts.

So If Yahoo is so bad

 

Should BT be getting there finger out and move us all onto there E-mail Servers away from Yahoothat they were going to do a few years back

But came to a quiet stop without telling anyone

 

 

One of the reasons given for the move in the passed was that BT were worried about Yahoo Security ??????

BT Yahoo accounts are NOT only re-badged  Yahoo accounts. They have differences.

 

What Yahoo posts is relevant to BT Yahoo but how much relevant should be confirmed by BT.

 

I have seen no BT statement that one of the reasons for moving from Yahoo was security. 

I would be pleased if someone could point me at one.

I am no longer a BTYahoo account holder so I am unaware of what the differences are between BTYahoo and Yahoo email accounts. Could you enlighten me what they are other than any superficial look of the email page.

 

As I made no mention of the reason for BT moving from Yahoo I presume the last part of your post was not directed to me but to Travelusa.

Seemingly account details are for sale. Perhaps BT will buy them so that they can tell us if BTYahoo accounts are compromised.
