'Dark Web' Sold 1 Billion Yahoo User Hack Data Many Times - Breitbart

'Dark Web' Sold 1 Billion Yahoo User Hack Data Many Times - Breitbart: Cyber-security firm InfoArmor claims that the data from Yahoo’s one billion user account hack was sold a number of times last August for $300,000 on the “dark web,” and that it is still offered for sale.

As Breitbart noted, the data from the hack in 2014, along with a 500,000-user hack in 2013, “were so extensive that they included users’ names, email addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, scrambled passwords and security questions and answers.”
