This will come as no surprise given the way Yahoo has handled the 2013 data breach.

Yahoo announced yesterday (October 3rd) that all –yes ALL — 3 billion of its 2013 user accounts were breached. Originally, Yahoo had announced that it was only (!!) 1 billion user accounts that had been hacked.

Yahoo keeps saying that no credit card information or unencrypted passwords for these hacked accounts “appear” to have been stolen by the hackers. Okay, so let’s hope the next Yahoo announcement isn’t one that changes their hedging their liability language of “appear to have been stolen” to “uh, sorry folks but this information was stolen.”

As much as I dislike raising the specter of worse potential news to come, Yahoo’s assertions about this breach doesn’t engender much trust.
