Every single Yahoo account was hacked - 3 billion in all


Source: CNN


 
Sitting down? An epic and historic data breach at Yahoo in August 2013 affected every single customer account that existed at the time, Yahoo parent company Verizon said on Tuesday.

That's three billion accounts -- including email, Tumblr, Fantasy and Flickr -- or three times as many as the company initially reported in 2016. Names, email addresses and passwords, but not financial information, were breached, Yahoo said last year.

The new disclosure comes four months after Verizon (VZ) acquired Yahoo's core internet assets for $4.48 billion. Yahoo is part of Verizon's digital media company, which is called Oath.



Cont’d.
