*Sorry, title should be: "Nigerian Hackers have access to my family's network and router, most likely computer too" | I used copy/paste for the title of another thread I browsed.*
So I just got a call from the family located a few states away from me saying that they were having trouble logging into their Yahoo account. At first, we thought it was just something wrong with the browser or a virus, so we initiated a custom scan using Malwarebytes. No threats found.
After this, they decided to call Yahoo support, but say the person was hard to understand because of a foreign accent. The person said that someone from Nigeria is the main holder of the email account and even if we were to change the password, they would still have access to their account. In addition, the Yahoo support said their network was not secure.
