Some Of The Fallout From The Latest Yahoo! Breach

I closed my Yahoo! account a few weeks ago following a parade of security breaches and the revelation that the company was being disturbingly chummy with government agencies in regards to user data.

While I am no doubt late in making that move, it's my own way of shaking my little fist at the sky in frustration.

The latest straw straining the camels' back is the admission of yet another breach, this time affecting a total of about a billion user account - pretty much all of Yahoo!, in effect.

The Bloomberg Digital Defense video article below has some quite interesting/depressing backstory to the latest incident, and offers some good Q&A after the initial report.
