With the shoe on the other foot, I realized those emails were comforting even though I was well aware of the problem.
But I did take time to quickly tap out a response to people who replied to the spam coming from my hijacked account. Because took the time and effort to give me a heads up that I had a problem. I figured these people knew they’d been compromised and I didn’t need to respond.
So I put the problem on the back burner and proceeded to have a fun family day. The thing is, I’d gotten a number of these same emails lately from other hacked Yahoo accounts.

By March 2015, Google executive Bradley Horowitz, who had co-founded Google Plus with Gundotra, had replaced Besbris, becoming vice president of streams, photos, and sharing.

Until January 24, 2017, users accessing the site using desktop computers could access some of the discontinued features by selecting option "Back to classic G ".
Google 's user base was roughly 60% male and 25% female as of November 2013, and 15% "other" or unknown. I’ve had a Yahoo account for over 10 years without a problem, even as I moved my business accounts over to Gmail. Shouldn’t my security questions have been presented in this scenario?

Here are the two important lessons I learned as a result.Google Plus (stylized as Google ) is an internet based social network that is owned and operated by Google.By that time, two core Google functions, communications and photos, had become standalone services.
