Yahoo discovered new data breach of more than one billion accounts

Yahoo yet confirms another massive cyber attack and this time around, it’s double the number implicated from before.


The company has identified a new breach that occurred in August 2013 and involved data associated with more than one billion user accounts. This makes it the world’s biggest known cyber breach.

They also said they have not been able to identify the intrusion associated with the theft. Stolen user account information may have included names, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers.

Again, while it may be too late, it’s best to keep you account updated and secured on your end.
