Another Breach For Yahoo!

Mark Crowther, Associate Director at Cyberis looks at the latest breach at Yahoo and the serious questions it raises about the company's historical and ongoing security programme.

The latest reports say that Yahoo lost data for more than one billion users back in August 2013 and that the data is suspected to contain names, email addresses, hashed passwords, security questions and associated answers. In addition, Yahoo has stated that the attackers have accessed Yahoo proprietary code used to generate cookies for user access without credentials.
