Yahoo acknowledged that there was a third attack on user accounts
Yahoo sent out a notification to users that their accounts may have been compromised due to a hacker attack, «took place during the last two years.»
As recently as December last year, Yahoo has confirmed the hacking of more than one billion accounts. Coupled with the September break-in recognition of not less than 500 million accounts this was the reason for the push from Verizon. As a result, according to unconfirmed reports, Verizon buys Yahoo, paying for 250-350 million less than was requested. Will new recognition to additional trading is still unknown. It is unknown the exact number of accounts affected in the latter case.
