NEW YORK, Oct. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Yahoo! Inc. ("Yahoo" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: YHOO) regarding an unprecedented security breach affecting nearly 500 million users.
On September 22, 2016, Yahoo revealed that a "recent investigation" confirmed that sensitive personal account information of at least 500 million account users "was stolen from the company's network in late 2014 by what it believes is a state-sponsored attack." Users' names, email addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords, and in some encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers were included in the data breach.
The Complaint alleges that Yahoo's actions were reckless as they disregarded the safety and security of Yahoo users' personal information. The Complaint claims that Yahoo should be held responsible for their insufficiencies and the damages caused to its users. Unlike several other recent data breaches, Yahoo has not offered users any assistance with identity theft protection, while Yahoo users are now at a greater risk of having their identities stolen and must find their own way and pay to protect themselves.
A class action lawsuit has already been filed.
