Yahoo users who have already received the phishing email messages, and who have followed the instructions in them, are asked to change their Yahoo account passwords immediately before their accounts are hijacked by cybercriminals and used fraudulently. And, if they gave out their credit card information, they asked to contact their bank for help. They should let their banks know that they were tricked by a phishing email and unknowingly gave their credit card information to cybercriminals.
