Yahoo Hack Steals Personal Info From At Least 500M Accounts

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Computer hackers swiped personal information from at least 500 million Yahoo accounts in what is believed to be the biggest digital break-in at an email provider.

The massive security breakdown disclosed Thursday poses new headaches for Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer as she scrambles to close a $4.8 billion sale to Verizon Communication.

The breach Thursday dates back to late 2014, raising questions about the checks and balances within Yahoo — a fallen internet star that has been laying off staff to counter a steep drop in revenue during the past eight years.

That's about as secure as the new Obamacare electronic medical records requirement. I've received 2 letters in the last 2 years that my medical records have been hacked. I'm 62, and have NEVER had my records hacked until Obama made it a requirement that all records be shared.

Well, he accomplished that. My records and SSN are now out there for the gleaning.

Do you still want to vote for Hillary? She wants "The Government" to take over. Like they are not already running it and getting hacked like her own email servers!

Will you all please vote for Donald Trump this time around, Please? And as much as I respect the Independents, a vote for one of them this time around is one less for Trump, and face it, an independent will not be our next President, but either Donald or Hillary will.

PLEASE stop Hillary.

If Verizon does not recognize a blessing when they see one it's on them.This is the equivalent of trying to get a car running right just long enough to sell it.

There is nothing secure any longer. I had my info compromised by the VA and the office of personnel management, both government offices, then come to find out through the IRS there was a 9,900 home equity loan taken out 2014 that I had no idea where came from. Also a workman's comp claim
