Yahoo passwords released on the net Flickr accounts too

Go change your password.   450,000 accounts and passwords have been released.  Since Flickr is a yahoo company you may not be safe.

Mine was as well.  I still changed it to be safe.  It is good to do now and then anyway.

The hack only affected the Yahoo voice service database.

I'll still change my password though . . .
