You Might Be Able To Collect $100 From Yahoo’s Massive Data Breach

Yahoo will pay up to $85 million to settle a class action lawsuit over its massive data breach, reports the Recorder, a legal publication.

That includes $50 million for compensation for up to 200 million affected users plus another $35 million for lawyers’ fees and expenses.

People who had Yahoo accounts between 2012 and 2016 and experienced out-of-pocket costs tied to the data breaches will be eligible for compensation, and small businesses and other paid users will be eligible for a 25% refund for fees paid during that time period.
