The passwords to 432,000 email accounts were leaked earlier today. They were leaked from an older Yahoo file associated with the Yahoo! Contributor Network. Yahoo claims that only about 5 percent of the accounts had valid (current) passwords, but here’s how to check if your ancient account is one of them.

Security company Sucuri has put together a tool to check if your email is included in the 400,000+. Make sure to check yours now!  If yours was leaked, immediately change your password.
