New Zealand Telecom Hacked Into, CEO Calls to Drop Yahoo as Email Provider
New Zealand communications service provider Telecom was hacked into this week and hackers gained access to the personal email accounts of 450,000 Telecom customers. Telecom uses Yahoo as its email provider to support customer's accounts. Spammers used these accounts to send out malware. Telecommunications Users Association chief executive Paul Brislen is calling for the company to drop Yahoo so that this issue does not happen again.
