Yahoo is aware of the data leak but has neither confirmed or denied that these alleged Yahoo accounts are in fact, Yahoo accounts:
We are committed to protecting the security of our users’ information and we take any such claim very seriously. Our security team is working to determine the facts. Yahoo works hard to keep our users safe, and we always encourage our users to create strong passwords, or give up passwords altogether by using Yahoo Account Key, and use different passwords for different platforms.
My advice? Change your password!
