I got this in my email today.
Many people have or have had Yahoo email.
These breaches were bad.
In some places, with just a little more info that could be found based on the compromised data -- this is enough to apply for certain types of credit....records taken included the names, email addresses, telephone numbers, birth dates, passwords, and security questions and answers of Yahoo account holders.
Who’s Included? If you received a Notice about the Data Breaches, or if you had a Yahoo account at any time between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2016, and are a resident of the United States or Israel, you are a “Settlement Class Member.”
If affected, you can get credit monitoring or maybe $100. Maybe.
Complete information and instructions on Filing a Claim, excluding oneself from the Settlement, or Objecting are available on the Settlement Website at www.YahooDataBreachSettlement.com.
