The recent breach at Yahoo has proved once again that, regardless of a company’s size and expertise, security is always an issue. In the wake of the incident which left Yahoo bosses scratching their heads and millions of account users scrambling to update their passwords, some have suggested that the problem is more serious than Yahoo has let on.
Aside from questions over the time delay between the security breach happening and Yahoo making it public (it took place in 2014 but was reported in 2016), one former executive thinks that Yahoo’s given number of 500 million affected accounts is wrong. Although he’s chosen to remain anonymous at this point, the former Yahoo bigwig told Business Insider that as many as one billion accounts could have been compromised.
