Yahoo hack

"Breaches continue to take place without companies identifying the breach, or at least the full impact of the breach. The time taken between the breach occurring and notification to those whose details are breached can leave to risk of compromise of other accounts. We have an issue about how we authenticate ourselves to systems currently - mostly relying solely on passwords or personal information (when a password is forgotten).

"Today not that many people use Yahoo - probably less than 1billion - but it's an issue of trust - can we trust the people who run online accounts? This happened three years ago so why has it taken this long to surface?"

- Carsten Maple, Professor of Cyber Systems Engineering at WMG's Cyber Security Centre (CSC)
