(New York, New York) Milberg LLP announces that it is investigating potential violations of federal and state laws by Yahoo! Inc., in connection with its announcement today of a 2014 data breach that compromised at least half a billion Yahoo accounts.

According to Yahoo, it believes the hackers were state-sponsored, and stole names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, and some passwords and security questions and answers.

Such stolen information typically is a treasure trove for cyber criminals who buy it on “dark web” sites from the hackers, and utilize it to break into valuable user accounts, such as bank, credit, debit and reward-card accounts. Prior to the announcement from Yahoo confirming the breach, hackers on black market sites were purporting to sell Yahoo user data.

Data security experts recommend against the common practice of people using the same account sign-in information for various accounts, which threatens to compromise all the accounts when only one is breached.

Milberg LLP is a nationally recognized leader in protecting the rights of consumers, including those harmed by identity fraud. Milberg has represented, and is currently representing, the rights of consumers in several high-profile data breach and identity theft class actions including actions against Target, Premera, Anthem, and Intuit.
