A US judge has ruled that users can sue Yahoo over a host of breaches that occurred between 2013 and 2016.

 

According to a recent ruling from US district judge Lucy Koh, Yahoo will face litigation regarding a set of data breaches that occurred between 2013 and 2016, and left more than 1 billion user accounts exposed.

In a 93-page response, Koh outlined the multiple breaches that Yahoo dealt with, and how many users were potentially affected. Despite the massive size of the breaches, Yahoo took a long time to disclose them to users—in some cases, even years. John Pironti, cybersecurity expert and president of IP Architects, said that Yahoo should be held responsible for its slow response.

"Individuals should have a reasonable expectation that their personal information will be properly protected by the organizations they provide it to and also to be notified immediately upon verification of a breach if their data has been compromised," Pironti said.
