Cabn concur Terry!

My Sky email account was suddenly locked yesterday early evening - to the point I had to contact Sky to get it unlocked.

The chap on the line confirmed that there had been a breach at Yahoo (the provider of the Sky email account) and that any account that had been the target of an attacked was automatically locked by Sky's own systems. This seems to bear out as Flo's Sky account was not affected.

I had the same email. Rather than click on the link in the email I went into my Sky account and reset the password from there. I presumed there had been an attempted hack which seems to have been confirmed.
