I got this email, seems legit (passing DKIM, SPF). Why I am not seeing reports of this incident anywhere? Nowadays people really shouldn't give websites any information that is not absolutely necessary.

I would just go to their website by typing it in (Not clicking) and resetting your password.

No blog post about it, seems kind of fishy. I would go to their page and do a forgot password.

I agree, this seems "unreal" to me too.

Remember to never ever click links in emails unless you can reasonably expect them to be safe. Examples might include some product link to Dell or Amazon and even then you should use caution.

One lax moment can cause you untold grief. I'm sure you know that you should not be running logged on as an Administrator.

passwords are obsolete. Why don't more services use 2 factor authentication?

cheap, fast, good - pick any two.

PSA: Yahoo email is extremely insecure...switch to Gmail if you can!! Hotmail is better but not as good as Gmail.
