Yahoo Hacked

Yahoo hacked
“Yahoo (YHOO, Tech30) confirmed on Thursday data “associated with at least 500 million user accounts” have been stolen in what may be one of the largest cybersecurity breaches ever.”

Mandient sets each account at roughly ~$200, so this is one of the most costly breaches ever.

Sources state, this breach became known in August when an infamous cybercriminal named “Peace” claimed on a website that he was selling credentials of 200 million Yahoo users from 2012 on the dark web for just over $1,800. The data allegedly included user names, easily decrypted passwords and personal information like birth dates and other email addresses.

So similar to the words of famous/infamous hacker Lauri Love (@LauriLoveX), If you’ve used a password anywhere online since 2012 and are still using it today, then it’s not a secret anymore. Someone has your password.
