Ya­hoo says over 1b ac­counts hacked

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS -

Ya­hoo! Inc said on Tues­day it had iden­ti­fied “data se­cu­rity is­sues” con­cern­ing more than one bil­lion Ya­hoo user ac­counts. The breach, ad­di­tional to what was re­vealed in Septem­ber, when 500 mil­lion Ya­hoo ac­counts were ex­posed, was ini­tially dis­cov­ered by law enforcement of­fi­cials. They pro­vided the com­pany with data files that a third party claimed was Ya­hoo user data. Ya­hoo, based in Sun­ny­vale, North­ern Cal­i­for­nia, an­a­lyzed the data with the as­sis­tance of out­side foren­sic ex­perts and found that it ap­peared to be Ya­hoo user data.
