Yahoo on Tuesday said that every single Yahoo account was affected by a data breach that took place in 2013.
In 2016, Yahoo disclosed that more than one billion of about three billion accounts had likely been affected by the hack. In its disclosure Tuesday, the company said all accounts were likely victimized.
Yahoo included the finding in a recent update to its Account Security Update page, saying that it found out about the wider breach through new intelligence obtained during the company’s integration into Verizon Communications. Outside forensic experts assisted in the discovery, the company said.

Health insurance is designed to cover patients when they get sick, but what happens when insurance companies stamp “reject” on a claim?
Some of those patients may end up sicker, suggests a recent survey entitled “Not What the Doctor Ordered” from the Doctor-Patient Rights Project (DPRP). Health insurers denied coverage for nearly a quarter of the Americans with chronic conditions or persistent illnesses. In a third of the cases, these patients, all of whom had insurance coverage, said their conditions worsened after being rejected.

Smartphone owners who replace smashed screens at third party outlets could be at risk of having their devices hacked, a study has revealed.
Researchers at the University of the Negev have shown that replacement screens for Android smartphones can be manipulated to steal personal information and take control of a repaired device.

People and cars lined up to get on ferries, the only way off Ocracoke Island. Gas stations ran perilously low on fuel and ice. Workers at a cafe improvised by using flashlights to make sausage biscuits on a gas stove and people searched for anything cold to eat or drink in the thick, humid air.
