Submission + - Hackers post 450K credentials apparently pilfered from Yahoo (

x0d writes: "Yahoo appears to have been the victim of a security breach that yielded more than 400,000 login credentials stored in plain text.
  The hacked data, posted to hacker site D33D Company, contained more than 453,000 login credentials and appears to have originated from the Web pioneer's network. The hackers, who said they used a union-based SQL injection technique to penetrate the Yahoo subdomain, intended the data dump to be a 'wake-up call.'"
