Latest Yahoo security breach has compromised 1 billion user accounts

Latest Yahoo security breach has compromised 1 billion user accounts
Reports have it that, Yahoo had a security breach which caused a compromise on over 1 billion user accounts. According to an official blog post by Yahoo’s Chief Information Security Officer(CISO) Bob Lord,


                               Latest Yahoo security breach has compromised 1 billion user accounts

“…we believe an unauthorized third party, in August 2013, stole data associated with more than one billion user accounts. We have not been able to identify the intrusion associated with this theft. We believe this incident is likely distinct from the incident we disclosed on September 22, 2016.”

This particular breach is different from the previous one in September, which led to about 500 million accounts that were hacked sometime in 2014.

The latest breach may include names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (using MD5). But sensitive financial data like payment information and banking information were not stolen by the breach as the system that stores them was not affected.

Yahoo has also started to notify potentially affected users and necessary steps taken to secure their accounts, including requiring users to change old passwords.

To further protect their accounts, users are advised to;

  • Regularly review account activity
  • Change passwords of other accounts that have similar passwords with the Yahoo mail
  • Beware of website and emails demanding personal information
  • Avoid opening suspicious links and attachments
  • Consider using the Yahoo Account Key for authentication.
