    How to tell if your account was hacked - http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&y=PROD...

    If you think your account was hacked, the first thing to do is to immediately change your password - https://edit.yahoo.com/forgotroot/

    If you're unable to change your password, open the first link and click the "Contact Customer Care" link under the Quick Links section to the right of your screen. This should open the "How can we help you?" form.

    "Select your Product" select "Yahoo! Account"

    "Select your category" select "Hacked Accounts"

    "Select your sub-category" select "unable to verify my secret question"

    "Briefly tell us how we can help" enter 'secret question was changed"

    Scroll down until you see an envelope that says "Email a Support Agent".

    Click on the envelope and fill out the form.

    You can also select "Talk to our support team by phone"

    If you use your Yahoo password at other sites you will need to change the password for those sites as well. I recommend using a password manager like Keepass or LastPass to create strong unique passwords for the sites you visit. You can also save notes like your secret questions and answers to the password entries. LastPass can automatically log you in to any web site you have stored in its database.

    Activate Second sign-in verification

    Sign in to Yahoo! Mail.

    Click the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the window.

    Click Account Info

    You will be required to enter your password for security purposes.

    Under "Sign-in and Security," click Set up your second sign-in verification.

    Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the second sign-in verification setup.

    You can either:

    Use either account’s security questions or mobile phone number for verification.

    Use only your mobile phone number for verification.

    While you are in Account Info you can check if any other applications have been linked to your Yahoo account. Delete any that you didn't activate.
