    I am getting emails asking me to login or my account will be terminated. I also am getting notices that my yahoo account has been hacked. I did some reading and yahoo is terminating accounts. Are these related?

    Hi kersh,

    These do not sound like legitimate notices, they sound like phishing emails sent by hackers that are designed to steal your login information so they can use your account for spamming. Do not ever click on links in suspicious emails or provide personal information such as your password to others.
