Ubergizmo: Yahoo Confirms An Additional 32 Million Accounts Were Hacked

Yahoo has copped to the compromise of 32 million Yahoo accounts. “It has been a tough couple of quarters for Yahoo. Over the past few months, the company has confirmed massive cyberattacks that it faced in 2014 and 2013 which affected more than 500 million and 1 billion user accounts respectively. Yahoo has now confirmed another cyberattack. It was a cookie-forging attack which left more than 32 million accounts breached. There aren’t a lot of details available about this attack right now but it’s believed to have taken place between 2015 and 2016.”
