      Excerpt only:

      SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 31 (UPI) - Attackers now own an undisclosed number of Yahoo! Mail usernames and passwords, stolen from a third-party site, the Sunnyvale, Calif., Internet giant said. As a result, Yahoo! will now require affected users to change their passwords and use a one-time second sign-in verification to re-secure their accounts, Yahoo! Inc. Senior Vice President Jay Rossiter wrote in a blog post log. Yahoo has 273 million users worldwide and 81 million in the United States.
