Yahoo Japan was hacked by cyber criminals and lost data of 22 million users.This is the 2nd time for Yahoo to come under direct attack by the cyber criminals. A few months ago , Yahoo Australia was hacked by hackers putting 75,000 user data at risk. After the leak, Yahoo said that it has increased the security but the current leak shows the other picture.
We don’t know if the file (of 22 million user IDs) was leaked or not, but we can’t deny the possibility, given the volume of traffic between our server and external
Though they emphasized that the password were not accessed by the hackers but the claim can’t be tested as the history is full of such claims which are found to be false afterwards.
What Yahoo Japan do next after the hack needs to be seen ?.Because such attacks and leaks will only break the already fragile Yahoo .
