    I don't know when I last saw or heard of an e-mail account hijacked that wasn't AT&T. If it ever happened, it's been so long (years) that I can't remember if it ever happened. I've had five e-mails this week from people whose e-mail accounts were hijacked and they were all AT&T/Yahoo accounts. Trying to remember, it seems this wasn't a problem until Yahoo took over and put all that security and unusual settings into their mail setup that makes it so difficult to set up a mail client.

    It seems Yahoo either has the sloppiest security on the planet or they are in cahoots with the hijackers. I'm leaning towards just plain sloppy.

    Why is it always AT&T and never anyone else? What's your take on this?
