Anyone who has done business with Yahoo over the last few years has been giving the company a consistent side eye. The firm just doesn’t have the swag of a Google, Facebook or even a Microsoft. This swag has been undermined even further with the latest security breach in the company, where hackers came in and jacked the company for hundreds of thousands of its passwords. To make it even more interesting, the hackers put all of the passwords on the Internet for the world to see. They were just trying to make a point, they say, and not trying to do anything with the information.
When you are embarrassed on such a large scale in front of the world stage, you have to rethink your policies and your priorities. Yahoo was once the darling of the Internet, but these days, the company appears to have management so bad that it puts Frank Ocean’s manager to shame (Frank’s manager just went out and dissed one of the largest retailers in the world – stupid). Maybe one day they will get it together, but it seems that Yahoo might be on its way out of cyberspace.
Techyville.com tells more:
Looks like it’s time for everyone to update their account information on Yahoo. Recently, the site was hacked by an anonymous group who released the log-in information for nearly half a million people on a separate page. The page was down on Thursday, but the fact that Yahoo is not that secure still remains.
A note that was posted to the page claims that the hackers did not intend to do anything with the information. Its stated, “we hope that the parties responsible for managing the security of this subdomain will take this as a wake-up call, and not as a threat. There have been many security holes exploited in Web servers belonging to Yahoo! Inc. that have caused far greater damage than our disclosure. Please do not take them lightly.”
