Yahoo says hack hit all 3 billion mail users

An investigation found that the stolen user account information did not include passwords in clear text payment card data or bank account information

Verizon now says data from all Yahoo users was affected by a 2013 data hack.

Yahoo said that the hackers did not obtain plaintext passwords, credit card data, or bank account information.

At the time, Yahoo brought in outside forensic experts and confirmed that the data was in fact from Yahoo users - and that the breach affected more than one billion user accounts.

Now a part of Verizon subsidiary Oath, along with AOL, Yahoo said that all of its members were affected by the August 2013 data theft.

Derek Carr injured but Raiders not lost
Will the Raiders still be.500 at that point? The Raiders hope they are better equipped to handle the absence this year with E.J. As such, Manuel will be under center in a really important Week 5 game against Baltimore this upcoming Sunday at the Coliseum.

The figure, which Verizon said was based on new information, is three times the 1 billion accounts Yahoo said were affected when it first disclosed the breach in December 2016. "Yahoo also notified users via a notice on its website".

Yahoo has never said that they identified the source of the hack, however as Bloomberg reminds us, the original hack was discovered by internet security expert Andrew Komarov, who had observed Yahoo's dataset being sold on the dark web three times, including once to a probable intelligence source that listed out "10 names of USA and foreign government officials and business executives to verify that their logins were part of the database". Compromised customer information included usernames, passwords, and in some cases telephone numbers and dates of birth, the spokesman said.

Verizon had demanded a lower price tag after Yahoo revealed two massive cyberattacks that took place before the takeover deal was announced. However it didn't know when they had gained entry to its network or how long they were there before they stole the user information.
