Senators Accuse Yahoo Of 'Unacceptable' Delay In Hack Discovery

Although everyone agrees that Yahoo hiding the fact that it been hacked for over two years is truly unacceptable, strongly worded letters from politicians don't mean diddly squat. In fact, the only way I see anything being done about this is if one of the senators mentioned above had a Yahoo account. wink

Six Democratic U.S. senators on Tuesday said it was "unacceptable" that Yahoo only last week announced a 2014 hack into 500 million user accounts and asked embattled CEO Marissa Mayer for more information about the company's investigation into the data breach. The lawmakers said they were "disturbed" the two-year-old intrusion was detected so long after the hack occurred. "That means millions of Americans’ data may have been compromised for two years," the senators wrote in a joint letter addressed to Mayer. "This is unacceptable."
