Is it saying that? or is it saying that someone tried to log in from, say, an known spot, new PC or whatever? If someone tries to log on to my account from Russia, for example, Yahoo might block it based on the location - regardless of whether the hacker entered my correct password - and then email me about it.
Yahoo seems rife with hackers - I frequently get spoofed spam purportedly from friends on Yahoo.
