Yahoo once again, hacked!!!
You need to think once again, as the company is warning its users of another hack.
Yahoo admitted two of the largest data breaches on record last year. One of hack which took place in 2013 disclosed personal details associated with more than 1 billion accounts affected.
Now again it happened.
The company revealed the data breach in security update in December 2016, but the news was largely overlooked, as the statement from Yahoo provided information on a separate data breach that occurred in August 2013 involving more than 1 billion accounts.
The warning message sent Wednesday to some Yahoo users read:
“Based on the ongoing investigation, we believe a forged cookie may have been used in 2015 or 2016 to access your account.”
The total number of customers affected by this attack is still unknown, though the company has confirmed that the accounts were affected by a security flaw in Yahoo’s mail service.
