Default Yahoo gets around to anouncing that 1 Billion users were hacked in 2013

The company said that the attack was separate from a breach in 2014 that led to 500 million accounts being compromised.

The 2013 hack involved more crucial user information, including passwords and unencrypted security questions.

More here.

It’s lovely to know that it only costs $300,000 to be able to threaten a billion people’s online existence – which means each account is only worth $0.0003 to hackers who can ruin your life online in a matter of minutes.
