Yahoo Already Being Hit With Multiple Lawsuits Over Hack

That was zippy: Yahoo has already been hit with lawsuits over the recent huge hack it admitted to. “On Friday, the firms Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd and Labaton Sucharow filed a suit in the US District Court in the Northern District of California. The suit, for which the firm intends to seek class action status, accuses Yahoo of ‘failure to establish and implement basic data security’ and being ‘grossly negligent’ with user data, according to the complaint. It also alleges the company knew of the breach ‘long before’ it was disclosed, but hid it from the public until after its $4.83 billion sale to Verizon.”
