We’ve just posted the following news: Yahoo reveals second breach, sale to Verizon jeopardized[newsimage]http://www.myce.com/wp-content/images_posts/2016/07/Yahoo_FB_Icon-95x75.jpg[/newsimage]

This week, Yahoo revealed yet another breach of its services, in which “state-sponsored hackers” gained access to information of still more user accounts. Their sale to Verizon? Might be difficult now.

Oh dear Yahoo. Are you really this careless and forgetful?

Or were you burying bad (and highly market sensitive) news, in the hope of a knight in shining armour coming along and buying your worthless business? Either way, it is clear that the security & welfare of your customers is of absolutely no concern to you. At least tell them promptly - people inevitably use the same password everywhere. Hackers know that and will be trying your list on other web sites, with a probable success rate of about 25%.

“State-sponsored hackers”? Pull the other one… It was probably just bored script kiddie. Seems like Yahoo’s security is run by the very same people who rejected Microsoft’s vastly over-inflated $45 Billion offer in 2008.

Lets all have a go at hacking them - I bet the admin password is ‘[I]magicbeans[/I]’. :rolleyes::stuck_out_tongue:
