In spite of Rogers Trying to enhance Customer Security by adding "encryption" and "Authentication", my Rogers_Yahoo email account was hacked on Tuesday , May 23, 2017 around 7pm.
A spam message as below was sent to each and every contact in my contact list.
Each and Every email from the folders were deleted. Just the empty folders were showing. I am very disappointed that Rogers Yahoo email is not safe. This should serve as a warning to all Rogers email users...
The initial support from Rogers was also disappointing as the tech. said that it was not Rogers but Yahoo that controls the email and he was not very supportive

Most of all these changes have been around the PoP and other connectivity from 3rd party devices and apps, at least what i can see.
Yahoo themselves, have enabled 2 step authentication on their web mail access..
But really havent seen anything on the Rogers end.
Unfortunately.. this leaves people open to getting KEYLOGED and their email broken into that way. If your machine has a keyloger on it, it will record any keystrokes entered. This then gives the person your email address and the password to enter in and log into your machine.
