OK, this is officially a hot mess.
Boo-hoo for Yahoo. A few months ago, they admitted to one of the largest data breaches in history. Now comes a disclosure that hackers stole data on 1 billion user accounts, in a completely new, separate breach. That's 1,000,000,000. One-thousand million. Since the ITU estimates there are a little over 3 billion Internet users, this affects as much as 33% of ALL Internet users. Credit monitoring isn't going to fix this problem, and given how bad security is at these companies, are really going to trust them with your fingerprints, etc.? SMS/Phone tokens maybe? Well, NIST agrees those are a joke and have deemed them inadequate for Federal security. The only thing that can stop this very human problem is a solution that deals with humans. TickStream.KeyID uses your behavior when you type your username and password, so when the next billion passwords are stolen, you can relax: nobody is you, so they can't use what they have stolen. Devalue the hack. http://intensityanalytics.com/keyid
