Yahoo Provides Notice to More Affected Accounts from 2013 Data Theft


During Yahoo’s recent integration with new owner Verizon, it has emerged that more accounts had been affected by the 2013 data theft, in which Yahoo admitted in December 2016 that more than 1 billion out of their 3 billion accounts were potentially broken into.

Verizon Communications Inc. said on Tuesday that the data breach at Yahoo in 2013 was far more extensive than previously disclosed, affecting all of its 3 billion user accounts.

According to Associated Press, Yahoo says, it obtained new intelligence while investigating the breach with help from outside forensic experts. It says the stolen customer information did not include passwords in clear text, payment card data or bank account information.
