Yahoo today has announced its second large hack in a matter of 3 months. In a post on the company’s Tumblr account, Yahoo’s chief information security officer Bob Lord announced that, in 2013, data from more than 1 billion user accounts was accessed by an unauthorized third-party. This revelation comes after Yahoo confirmed in September that 500 million user accounts were affected by a separate data breach.

To very little fanfare, Yahoo today released a new mobile application for its Yahoo Answers Q&A service. Yahoo had quietly been testing the service under a different name, Yahoo Hive, but it has since rebranded the app to Yahoo Answers Now and made it fall more inline with the web version (via TechCrunch).

Yahoo expected to confirm hack that exposed data for ‘hundreds of millions’ of users (Update: Yahoo confirms)

Updated: Yahoo confirms.

We have confirmed that a copy of certain user account information was stolen from the company’s network in late 2014 by what it believes is a state-sponsored actor. The account information may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (the vast majority with bcrypt) and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers.

If the new Yahoo View app tempted you to dust off your Yahoo account to give it a try, you might want to change your password while you’re at it. Re/code reports that the company is expected to confirm that a hack has exposed the account details of ‘several hundred million user accounts.’
