Yahoo breach puts users of other sites at risk


BOSTON (Reuters) - More than 400,000 Yahoo Inc user names and passwords were stolen and published on the Web, putting other websites at risk as well, after hackers exploited a vulnerability in Yahoo's computer systems.
Some logins for Google Inc, AOL Inc and Microsoft Corp services were among those compromised. The three companies said they required affected users to reset passwords for sites including Gmail, AOL, Hotmail, MSN and Live.com.
Yahoo issued a statement apologizing for the breach, the latest setback for a company that has lost two chief executives in a year and is struggling to revive stalled revenue growth.
Chairman Alfred Amoroso acknowledged that Yahoo had experienced a "tumultuous" year at its annual shareholder meeting on Thursday morning. Interim CEO Ross Levinsohn told attendees he was optimistic about the company's progress.
The breach prompted criticism from security experts who said that a major Internet firm like Yahoo should do a better job at protecting user data.
"This points to some very lax security practices," said Rob D'Ovidio, associate professor of criminal justice at Drexel University.
As an example, he noted that the hackers were able to produce more than 400,000 cleartext passwords within a day. That indicates that Yahoo either did not encrypt them at all or used an encryption method that was easy to crack, he said.
The professional networking service LinkedIn recently came under similar criticism. Security experts chided the company for failing to use sophisticated encryption practices to secure its passwords, millions of which were released following a breach last month.
WHAT HAPPENED?
Yahoo spokeswoman Dana Lengkeek said "an older file" had been stolen from Yahoo Contributor Network, an Internet publishing service that Yahoo purchased about two years ago. It helps writers, photographers and videographers to sell their work over the Web.
"We are fixing the vulnerability that led to the disclosure of this data, changing the passwords of the affected Yahoo! users and notifying the companies whose users' accounts may have been compromised," she said.
AOL said the Yahoo data published on the Web included valid passwords for 1,699 accounts. Microsoft and Google declined to provide similar numbers.
Other firms whose customers were at risk include Comcast Corp, Verizon Communications Inc and AT&T, Rapid7 researcher Marcus Carey said. He estimated that tens of thousands of accounts of users of services other than Yahoo were affected by the breach.
AT&T and Verizon did not have any immediate comment. Officials with Comcast could not be reached.
AOL Senior Vice President David Temkin said spammers typically use credentials like the ones stolen from Yahoo to break into email accounts and use them to send out spam.
"In this case, I think we actually got ahead of it before the people who stole those accounts were able to use them," Temkin said.
The five most popular passwords in the group were "123456", "password", "welcome" and "ninja", according to an analysis by anti-virus software maker ESET.

Ketua Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah, Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen Kuala Lumpur, Datuk Ku Chin Wah berkata, dalam kejadian pukul 2.30 petang itu, kedua-dua suspek berjumpa anggota polis bantuan yang mengawal pintu masuk kompleks itu untuk meminta kebenaran masuk ke pejabat Perdana Menteri.

“Apabila tidak dibenarkan, dengan tiba-tiba lelaki yang mengaku sebagai Imam Mahadi itu mengeluarkan pedang samurai sebelum mengacukan kepada anggota polis bantuan bertugas.
“Kedua-dua mereka terus bergerak sehingga ke kawasan blok B1 sebelum mengamuk dengan memecahkan cermin beberapa kereta yang berdekatan dengan blok itu," katanya dalam kenyataan yang dikeluarkan di sini hari ini.

Utusan Malaysia difahamkan, lelaki yang tidak berbaju itu dikatakan memberitahu mahu menggulingkan kerajaan dan bertakbir beberapa kali.
Kejadian itu menyebabkan orang ramai dan penjawat awam tidak dapat memasuki bangunan tersebut apabila pintu pagarnya ditutup oleh pihak polis bagi mengelak sebarang kejadian yang tidak diingini.

Serentak itu, Chin Wah berkata, sepasukan anggota Unit Kereta Peronda (MPV) Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah (IPD) Putrajaya dikejarkan ke tempat kejadian.
“Anggota-anggota MPV yang sampai cuba memujuk, tetapi diserang oleh kedua-dua suspek dan mereka kemudian ditembak oleh anggota polis berkenaan.

“Suspek perempuan cedera di paha kanan manakala lelaki pula di bahagian tangan dan ari-ari bahagian kiri," katanya.
Beliau berkata, kedua-dua suspek ditangkap dan dihantar ke hospital untuk rawatan dan butir-butir suspek serta motif kejadian dalam siasatan.

“Suspek lelaki disahkan meninggal dunia semasa dalam perjalanan ke Hospital Putrajaya," katanya.
Sementara itu, Ketua Polis Daerah Putrajaya, Asisten Komisioner Abdul Razak Abdul Majid pada sidang akhbar di pejabatnya berkata, berdasarkan maklumat awal, mangsa dikenali sebagai Khalil Afandi Hamid, 47, manakala suspek wanita adalah Muhdalina Ahmad, 28.

Katanya, kedua-dua suspek yang menganggur itu dikatakan mengenali satu sama lain sejak seminggu lalu dan Muhdalina adalah bekas pelajar Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia (UIAM).
“Kami juga dimaklumkan bahawa lelaki terbabit memiliki seorang anak manakala suspek perempuan mempunyai dua anak," katanya.

Ketika ditanya adakah kedua-dua suspek mempunyai kaitan dengan jaringan pengganas, beliau berkata, perkara itu masih dalam siasatan polis.
“Begitu juga dengan dakwaan suspek adalah seorang penulis blog yang dikatakan mengutuk pihak berkuasa," katanya.-Utusan
