Yahoo was recently exposed for history’s greatest data breach.
This is a data breach of over 1 billion users resulting in a drop in the shares of Sunnyvale by 6%. This followed another major hack back in September which is causing Verizon to contemplate on the on deal. originally the value was set at $4.8 billion for Yahoo’s core internat business. But Verizon intends go through with the deal however aiming to persuade Yahoo into amending the deal considering the extent of economic damage.
The data stolen in the breach is said to have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers.
