Verizon increasingly has it easier to cancel the purchase contract of Yahoo
Yesterday we informed you of the new attack that the Yahoo company had suffered, an attack perpetrated in 2013 that affected more than 1,000 million accounts, and where it was stolen from the questions to recover the passwords, to the numbers of the credit cards. credit associated with them, if available. It should be remembered that months ago the same company announced that in 2014, Yahoo also suffered an attack in which data was stolen from more than 500 million accounts of users of the different Yahoo platforms, mainly the email service.
Last July, Verizon reached an agreement with Yahoo by the end of the year acquire the majority of the company for $ 4.83 billion, but the cases that have been made public in recent months, including the hacking of 500 million accounts and collaboration with the NSA to create a program that would spy on the platform’s email accounts, forced Verizon to rethink the situation and demand a discount of 1,000 million dollars if Yahoo wanted to continue with the sale operation.
But it seems that finally Verizon has thrown in the towel and decided to jump ship and is looking for possible legal avenues in order to render the pre-contract he signed with Yahoo worthless, claiming that the company’s value has dropped considerably in addition to its reputation among the millions of users who make use of it. In fact, since the news was known, the value of Yahoo in the New York Stock Exchange has fallen dramatically and has no signs of improving, seeing the fame that the company has acquired in recent months, becoming a sink for that any friend of others can access their servers like Pedro at home and access very valuable information.
