Yahoo’s timing once again leaves much to be desired.
Just hours after Bloomberg reported that Verizon is finally close to a renegotiated deal for Yahoo! Inc.’s internet properties that would reduce the price of the $4.8 billion agreement by about $250 million after the revelation of security breaches at the web company, Yahoo issued another warning to users, advising them their accounts may have been compromised by “potentially malicious” activity on their accounts between 2015 and 2016.
An email from Yahoo forwarded to ZDNet said: “Our outside forensic experts have been investigating the creation of forged cookies that could allow an intruder to access users’ accounts without a password. Based on the ongoing investigation, we believe a forged cookie may have been used in 2015 or 2016 to access your account.”
