    Change your flickr password now!

    450,000 logins stolen. Even better: yahoo was storing them as plaintext, the absolute apex of stupidity. And if you used your yahoo/flickr password on any other service, obviously change that too.

    Amazes me that as advanced as technology gets, old fashioned SQL is what is the base language that gets through in these horrible exploits (IT folk will get what I'm saying)....

    Not bothering. Nothing on Flickr worth worrying about.
    I can't imagine that there is any information about me there which could be of any use to anyone else.
