YAHOO Security Breach

Since Verizon uses Yahoo Mail can I assume that we should change passwords and security questions on Yahoo due to security breach being reported?

I was unable to log into Yahoo this morning to change settings.

This breach actually occurred some time ago.  Yahoo did send out a message about changing your password, in fact it required me to do so.  They are just coming clean about the extent of the data breach.

Never hurts to change your password periodicly

Changing my verizon yahoo email password

After receiving a message from Yahoo regarding their hacking, I have attempted to change my verizon yahoo email password.  After signing in, I am sent to the verizon/yahoo.com page.  When I click on my name and select "Account Info", I am transferred to a page titled: https://verizon.edit.client.yahoo.com/verizon/membercenter    

This page just keeps refreshing and never appears to allow me to access my password and change it.

What is happening here, is there another way to change my email password (and I don't mean my Verizon account password)?

Access to yahoo thru Chrome

Since the news about the hacking of Yahoo, I cannot access my yahoo account or yahoo email (Verizon.net) through Google.  I can access thru Firefox.  I was on the phone for over an hour with customer service and at least got my laptop to use Firefox for access.  My tablet and smartphone are dead in the water for my email.  What is the problem and how can I fix it.

I don't know why Verizon would need to send me a private FORUM message to reply to my question.  I had trouble logging onto FORUM earlier today but was able to access msg. finally.

ANSWER was that they reset my password but I believe Verizon is doing this for most users since spouse had to reset password last night.

(new password requirements are very restrictive, took 20 min to think of one that was accepted)
