What could go wrong with bad cybersecurity? On September 22, 2016, Yahoo! officially acknowledged the largest data breach in the history of the Internet. It evaluated that about 500 million Yahoo! user accounts were stolen. Business Insider reported that the number of affected accounts may be between 1 Billion and 3 Billion. The full breadth of the incident still has to be assessed, but the information that was copied included full names, phone numbers, birth dates, email addresses, and even security question-and-answers pairs which created by the user to authenticate the account.
