Yahoo breached by "worst bug in the world"

Yahoo breached by "worst bug in the world"

Tens of millions of people visit Yahoo everyday, so when word gets out that a popular part of the Internet giant is infected with the "worst bug ever," trust me, it gets a lot of attention!

I've been telling you about this bug, Shellshock, since last week.  You can click here to read more of my coverage. But I'm pretty certain we will be hearing a lot more about this bug as hackers all over the world figure out how to use it against our gadgets and the sites so many of us visit.

Yahoo hasn't publicly confirmed the data breach yet. Johnathan Hall, a security researcher with Future South Technologies, claims to have found trace evidence of a Romanian hacker's presence on Yahoo's servers.

Not only that, but he also shared an email from Yahoo that confirmed the breach. So we can be sure that hackers found their way onto one of the most highly trafficked sites on the internet.
