Yahoo detected evidence that a hacker had broken into its computer network at least 18 months before launching an investigation that discovered personal information had been stolen from about 500 million user accounts. The timeline outlined in a regulatory filing late Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2016, raises further questions about why it took Yahoo so long to realize the severity of its security breakdown. It could also jeopardize a $4.8 billion deal with Verizon. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez, File)

Yahoo users are getting hacked again.  Yahoo said in an email yesterday that hackers used forged cookies to log into users’ accounts without passwords.  A company spokesperson says experts are investigating the forged cookies, and that Yahoo is in the process of notifying all potentially affected account holders.  The statement added that Yahoo has invalidated the cookies.  The company believes it’s the same group of hackers whole stole user information on 500-million Yahoo accounts in 2014.
