Ya­hoo says hack­ers stole data from 1 bil­lion ac­counts

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

NEW YORK | Ya­hoo says it be­lieves hack­ers stole data from more than 1 bil­lion user ac­counts in Au­gust 2013.

The Sun­ny­vale, Cal­i­for­nia, com­pany says it’s a dif­fer­ent breach from the one it dis­closed in Septem­ber, when it said 500 mil­lion ac­counts were ex­posed.

That new hack rev­e­la­tion raises ques­tions about whether Ver­i­zon will try to change the terms of its $4.8 bil­lion pro­posed ac­qui­si­tion of Ya­hoo.

Ya­hoo says the in­for­ma­tion stolen may in­clude names, email ad­dresses, phone num­bers, birth­dates and se­cu­rity ques­tions and an­swers.
