Yahoo! Reports Massive Data Breach

Earlier this month, Brazzers reported a data breach that affected 800,000 customers. Now Yahoo! has made a statement about a similar compromise. However, the latter is much larger affecting about 500,000,000 users. Yahoo! claims user account information was stolen in late 2014 and the information included passwords, names, email addresses, dates of birth, phone numbers, and more. This is bad news for Yahoo! and even worse news for the consumer.
