Moderator_02 posted a topic in Communications, Mail Services, the Media, etc.Two days ago Yahoo! announced that its information systems had been hacked in late 2014. This breech of customer information affects 500 million (no, that is not a typo) of its users. This incident is being reported as the largest [known] hacking event in the history of the digital world. For CL members who are users of Yahoo! services, you may want to consider some damage control, such as password changes, etc. An interesting twist in this story is that Yahoo! is in the process of being purchased by Verizon in a 4.83 billion USD transaction. This hacking incident reportedly could scuttle that change of ownership. For more information, here are just two of the many links to this announcement: http://www.businessinsider.com/yahoo-hack-by-state-sponsored-actor-biggest-of-all-time-2016-9 http://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/your-yahoo-account-was-probably-hacked-company-set-confirm-massive-n652586
