Holy crap Yahoo! Can't you get your security shit together?

It's happened yet again. It was only a few months ago when Yahoo revealed that around 500 million of their users had their accounts hacked back in 2014. This latest report double the last report of affected users at roughly 1 billion users! This attack, Yahoo says, dates back to 2013.

From RT:
Yahoo says it believes hackers stole data from more than one billion user accounts in August 2013, making it the email company's largest data breach. 
The tech company said the information stolen by hackers may have included names, email addresses, phone numbers, birthdates and security questions and answers. 
The company said it believed bank account information and payment card data was not affected.

Wow Yahoo... Really?

This information is now being made available only because Verizon is looking to buy out the once formidable Internet giant. Verizon is offering a cool $4.8 billion.

With all of the news about Yahoo's crappy security, I think Verizon should lower their bid...

What do you think about this? Let us know in the comments.
