You May Have Been Digitally Infiltrated: Yahoo Announces 500 Million Accounts Hacked……in 2014

I knew it.  Well I did know 'it' per se, but I knew something like this was bound to happen, but I digress.

We have confirmed, based on a recent investigation, that a copy of certain user account information was stolen from our network in late 2014 by what we believe is a state-sponsored actor. The account information may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (the vast majority with bcrypt) and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers.  The ongoing investigation suggests that stolen information did not include unprotected passwords, payment card data, or bank account information; payment card data and bank account information are not stored in the system that the investigation has found to be affected.

So basically 'state-sponsored actor' stole only certain information.  Or maybe they only wanted the names, addresses, phone numbers and birthdays. but not credit card information?  Yeah, and I have a blog on sale for 10 million. FOH

Off topic, but not:  Does anyone else keep tape over their laptop's camera thingy?
