Re: Most passwords hashed?
It will be interesting to see what if anything Verizon does security-wise for Yahoo customer accounts.

Re: Most passwords hashed?
Agreed, such negligence should be criminal in the age of information security we are currently in. For a company like Yahoo which has been in the game for several decades at this point, to not employ basic security for its user's information is a complete travesty.

Re: Yahoo Hack
Also , maybe Verizon will start having additional bargaining power from this point forward, there is a prestige issue now.

2 years?
I would thinks there may be a possibility that they have not known until hackers started selling information, 2 years would make sense if that is the case.

Re: Yahoo Hack
Agrees. Identifying attacks really takes time, so I would see how it would happen.

Re: Yahoo Hack
I would think revealing it at this time is the worst time for them.

I hope he is kidding, what world are they living in? They should have told us that some of our passwords may not be hashed in the first place before we sign up with an account.

Re: Yahoo Hack
The timing is suspect, for sure. But as we know, most companies don't find out about nation-state attacks until long after they first get in. And even if they detect & eradicate, they may not completely eradicate them.

Yahoo Hack
I find it wild that Yahoo did not know about or reveal information about the hack until just proir to selling the comapny to verizon for $4.8 billion dollars.  Im not sure how likly it was that they knew nothing for 2 years.
