Internet : : 1 billion Yahoo accounts were hacked
Posted By: ASiegel. on 2016/12/15 11:31:42
As an update to our previous story on 500 million accounts that had been hacked, Yahoo announced today that one billion accounts may have been compromised in a hack that is separate from the previous one. The company does not currently know how exactly the data has been obtained by a third party. The stolen information includes names, passwords, contact lists, and personalized answers to common security questions.

If you own a Yahoo user account, please update your password as soon as possible.

    Losing all of your customers creds and being owned for years only has a <5% repercussion on a stock. Not sure that makes security worth it.
    PPC assembly ain't so bad... ;)
