More reports of Yahoo been hacked!!
It has been reported that hackers have probably stolen information for more than a billion Yahoo accounts, this includes addresses, phone numbers, names and also weakly hashed passwords. All these attacks are dating back to 2013, the chief information security officer Bob lord has said that this breach is likely to be separate and unrelated to the previous breaches.
The stolen data has been analysed by forensic experts, and after the analysis the experts found that it appears to be Yahoo data. Based on further analysis by the forensic experts, they believe that an unauthorised party back in August 2013, stole the data that is associated with more than 1 billion Yahoo user accounts.
