    ...so if you're keeping track of compromised accounts at home, that's 1 billion, plus 500 million, plus 32 million.
    • 1,532,000,000 total KNOWN compromised accounts.
    • Interesting considering only 1,000,000,000 active global monthly users
    • Also interesting considering only 225,000,000 Mail users

    Soon there can't be any more breaches because ther won't be any more accounts to harvest. o_O

    I never understood the reason to buy them in the first place. It is just a website that posts other companies news. There are no Yahoo original stories anymore. What is there to buy? A 486 sitting in a closet running LAMP?

    Mainly it's the users. There's plenty of content that Yahoo! still creates and produces too.

    Thanks. Just quick google searches. I haven't had a Yahoo! account in ages though.

    Where is the content? I have seen zero original stories in the last month.

    Various parts of at least Sports, Finance, Entertainment, Tech, and News are something that come from Yahoo! rather than just aggregates from other sources.
