  • 500! Million! Yahoo! Passwords! Stolen!

    A massive breach at Yahoo compromised account details from at least 500 million users, and the company is blaming the attack on state-sponsored hackers.

    Names, email addresses, telephone numbers, and hashed passwords may have been stolen as part of the hack, which occurred in late 2014, Yahoo said.

    Who would have thought that 500 million people would be stupid enough to use Yahoo! ?

    I use the Yahoo search engine sometimes. Google's ads started to annoy me.

      I realise now that I didn't take into account that 450,000,000 of them were probably spammer email accounts c43ap.V1agr3 @ yahoo.com!!!!!!!!

        Hahaha… I'm still surprised that in the year 2016 this still pays off. What sort of inbred hick do you have to be to click on those links?

                  I'm a nerd. I have to wait until another very tired joke comes along to replace it.

                    You know, maybe the exclamation mark is why their company goes downhill. It kinda is Google's always-shouty retarded cousin.

                        Either that or they played a Wells Fargo™ to inflate the stock value.
