From what I read Yahoo said absolutely nothing until someone tried selling 200 million email address on the "dark" web. Yahoo had to explain. In August last year (I think it was) they admitted there had been a breach, but didn't say how big - that has only emerged in the last coupe of days.

 

And now that Verizon are about to take them over the s*** has hit the spinning thing.

 

A good reason for Verizon to reduce their offer price - buying damaged goods ?
