Yahoo has decided to pay compensation to owners of the 2013 Yahoo! Bid for 2013 and 2014 which led to the loss of user data (this applies to 200 million users in the US and Israel who were damaged during a Yahoo hacking attack in 2013 . years).
Under the terms of the agreement, Yahoo will pay $ 50 million in compensation for the mentioned leakage of data.
It will pay US $ 25 per hour to leak data to users of affected Yahoo accounts, or up to US $ 375 to users who can provide convincing documentation about data loss and identity theft. Users will be paid up to US $ 125 without any clear documentation as well as users without any documentation.
Yahoo’s parent companies Verizon and Altaba will be equally responsible for the financial compensation payment, but the financial consequences of the Yahoo attacks will be felt for a long time.
