Yahoo mail was recently the target of a cyberattack.

The internet giant revealed in a blog post Thursday that hackers tried to log into several e-mail accounts with stolen usernames and passwords.

The company has not yet said how many accounts were affected.

But, according to a note from a Yahoo executive, the passwords for affected users have been reset.

Yahoo is also working with federal law enforcement to investigate the attack.
