    Yahoo admits to being hacked 2 years ago



    Yahoo has admitted to being hacked two years ago. How does a company like Yahoo wait for two years to release this information? Oh, they didn't feel the need to let their users know until the information became available on the dark web. That's a fine way to do business and look out for their customers. I'm glad I never had a Yahoo account.

    The breach was confirmed on Thursday night but the statement and the notification that was sent to customers afterwards raised many questions. The major question that is raised is why it took so long for the company to disclose this, both from the date it was hacked and from the first appearance of the dumped data on the dark web about two months ago. The interesting is that this data was being sold by a user referred to as ‘Peace of Mind’ and this is the same user who sold data from MySpace and LinkedIn as well.

    It sounds like they only realized they'd been hacked a few days ago.

    That's bad too. I didn't read the whole article, but that sounds worse that sitting on the information for two years. Good thing Yahoo isn't in charge of credit card numbers.
