If you haven't seen my coverage of the supposed hack of a reported data breach at Yahoo Games, you can click here to check it out.

Yahoo released more detail about the hack, and here are facts straight from the horse's mouth:

  • Yahoo Games was not affected by Shellshock
  • No data was stolen
  • A few "isolated" servers were breached which didn't leak valuable user information
  • The hack came from Romanian IP addresses
  • Yahoo was breached when hackers exploited a vulnerable process on the affected servers

People still have their doubts, though.
