Yahoo Users Must Waive Class-action Rights—or Stop Using Yahoo
Attn: Yahoo User (especially Yahoo Mail users):
In case you’ve forgotten, Yahoo had a data breach that involved most Yahoo email accounts (billions of users were affected) back in 2013 – although the breach was not made public until three years later. Last month (March 2018) a U.S. judge ruled that victims of the massive data breach can sue Yahoo (Verizon) for damages in the United States.
Enter Verizon: Verizon acquired Yahoo in June 2017 and announced they would form a new company (Yahoo+Verizon) called OATH. We haven’t heard much about OATH, but we’ve heard a lot from Verizon.
