    'One billion' affected by Yahoo hack

    Banned
    Yahoo has said more than one billion user accounts may have been affected in a hacking attack dating back to 2013.
    The internet giant said the hack appears separate from a breach disclosed in September, when some 500 million accounts were accessed in 2014.
    Yahoo said names, phone numbers, passwords and email addresses were stolen, but not bank and payment data.
    The company, which is being taken over by Verizon, said it is working closely with the police and authorities.

    "Verizon, said it is working closely with the police and authorities",??????
    Question is, which CEO today is not working closely with the police and authorities and why still happening with hacks?
    Let's write to all the UK CEOs and ask them this question, are you working with the police and authorities now, if not, why not?!
