The name is ‘Peace‘ but it is a hackers name and it has already caused Yahoo a lot of severe headache, timely before the Verizon $4.8 billion deal. A hacking attempt has exposed and leaked millions of users data at Yahoo, say the sources close to the company. Yahoo is expected to issue a statement and confirm the hacking attempt.
But the sources are unable to specify to which magnitude this has affected. There will be most likely Government involvement for investigations, perhaps a legal action on cards as well.
The announcement could have an impact on Yahoo $4.8 billion deal with Verizon. This could lead to the adjustment in the transaction.
This happened back in August when a hacker named moniker ‘Peace‘ accepted that he willingly sold the personal information regarding 200 million Yahoo account holders.
