Yahoo Says Hackers Stole Information From Over 1 Billion Accounts

Hackers stole data from more than one billion Yahoo user accounts, the company disclosed late today. This breach is believed to be in addition to the one that was announced just a few months ago.

Paul Calatayud, CTO FireMon: “The fact that Yahoo is not sure how the breach occurred is not uncommon. Often the forensic data is there, but being able to shift through the complexities and scale of a large technology base is a challenge.”
