1 Billion Yahoo Accounts Stolen in Biggest Hack Ever
One billion Yahoo accounts were stolen in 2013, the company announced on Wednesday, in the largest (known) hack of all time.
The incident is separate from the breach Yahoo disclosed back in September, which saw at least 500 million accounts compromised.
In other words, Yahoo got hacked twice — badly.
The company isn't providing many details about the breach, because right now it doesn't know them. "The company has not been able to identify the intrusion associated with this theft," the company said in a statement.
