Yahoo says programmers stole data from more than 1B accounts

NEW YORK: Yahoo says it trusts programmers stole information from more than one billion client accounts in August 2013.

The Sunnyvale, California, organization says it’s an alternate break from the one it revealed in September, when it said 500 million records were uncovered. That new hack disclosure brings up issues about whether Verizon will attempt to change the terms of its $4.8 billion proposed securing of Yahoo.

Hurray says the data stolen may incorporate names, email addresses, telephone numbers, birthdates and security inquiries and answers. The organization says it trusts financial balance data and installment card information were not influenced.
