    Yahoo has the dubious distinction of having not just one but two record-shattering historical data breaches come to light in the same year.

    Yahoo on Dec. 14 warned that it's found a breach that appears to date from 2013, which put the data of 1 billion users at risk.

    "We believe an unauthorized third party, in August 2013, stole data associated with more than one billion user accounts," Yahoo CISO Bob Lord says in a security alert to customers. "We have not been able to identify the intrusion associated with this theft."

    Information that was potentially stolen includes names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, passwords hashed using the outdated MD5 algorithm as well as encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers. Yahoo says no payment card data or banking information was stored in the affected system, and thus it does not believe any such data was compromised.

    Yahoo is notifying all potentially affected customers and says that it's invalidated all security questions.

    The search giant believes the breach is separate from the incident that it confirmed on Sept. 22, which involved the theft of more than 500 million accounts in late 2014 (see Massive Yahoo Data Breach Shatters Records). In a recent Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Yahoo said that it detected that an attacker was inside its network in 2014, but failed to spot the data exfiltration.

    The White House says the FBI is now investigating both Yahoo breaches.

    I got an email from them at one of my 25 gmail accounts saying my Yahoo email had been breached. I forgot what the email said bc I don't use Yahoo. For anything. I can't imagine who would.

    What was that last major link network from BHW where 100% of the buyers got penalized? Matt Cutts publicly commented about it?

    I went to their BST and guess what Googlge Docs for reports and Gmail for sales. All right there pretty and neat for Google's delight - every client, every receit, real names, transaction numbers, all smoking gun.

    I mean what else could Matt Cutts want?

    Whatever happened to predictability, the milk man, the paper boy and evening TV?

    You miss your old familiar friends but they're waiting just around the bend.

    A third party penis sounds unsanitary.

    Well there's an opportunity. A third party penis review site where only sanitary ones get 5 stars.
