If you recall, Verizon put forward interest in acquiring Yahoo last year for $4.83 billion. Those arrangements to buy Yahoo are still on, even though the two massive hacks last year may have come close to derailing those plans, ultimately resulting in a price-cut (fun fact, at one billion active users, and a price-cut of $350 million, user security was apparently valued at 35 cents a head). Hopefully under Verizon the company might be able to step things up when it comes to security.
Whether the continued use of Yahoo Mail by consumers is a result of blissful ignorance or a lack of concern remains unknown, but perhaps the inclusion of AOL mail in the update provides some illumination. Either way, if I can I’d like to encourage any users of the service interested in their privacy or security to consider any of its more secure competitors.
