Yahoo confirms information associated with 500 million users accounts was stolen in 2014 by suspected ‘state-sponsored actors‘ – http://bit.ly/2crrgXa
Editor’s note: In a press release issued today on its data breach, Yahoo urged users to consider enhancing their accounts, including ‘invalidating unencrypted security questions and answers so that they cannot be used to access an account and asking potentially affected users to change their passwords. Yahoo is also recommending that users who haven’t changed their passwords since 2014 do so.’
The BBC report on the Yahoo hack of more than 500 million accounts disclosed today notes that it appears to be greater than recent prominent cases: MySpace (359 million), Linkedin (159 million) and Adobe (152 million)
