In early August that a hacker using the name “Peace” was trying to sell the usernames, passwords and dates of birth of Yahoo account users on the dark web.The company said it was notifying potentially affected users and taking steps to secure their accounts. Fortunately, according to the company, stolen information did not include unprotected passwords, payment card data, or bank account information; payment card data and bank account information are not stored in the system that the investigation has found to be affected. “Yahoo will continue to strive to stay ahead of these ever-evolving online threats and to keep our users and our platforms secure,” they promised. Government investigations and legal action related to the breach are ongoing. The core of Yahoo’s business was sold to Verizon and this could lead to a readjustment of the transaction price.
