Given the wide range of personal information exposed, the possibility of attackers obtaining plaintext passwords is only one of the major concerns stemming from the breach. Yahoo users should be wary of communications that may use some of the compromised data to trick them into clicking on links, divulging information, or taking other actions.

Glad that I recently changed my Yahoo/Flickr password, but there are a lot of various things that are Yahoo properties, so I can’t help but wonder how many areas were affected. Nothing is safe.
