Re: Flimsy Argument
Unfortunately not, as you know. It sucks because it is such a violating feeling and all you get is a band-aid for a bullet wound after the fact.

Re: Flimsy Argument
Giving up your right to sue just to even find out if you're affected by their data breach! That's pretty outrageous. And sneaky! How do they even know the person actually gave up the right? Maybe the breached data was used on the site....

Re: Flimsy Argument
I have at least three services I have that monitor things--but it is still not good enough.   There is no way to "scarp yourself" clean--that I am aware of?

Anyone else?

Re: Flimsy Argument
Speaking of tools & data breaches. (this is very much an after-the-fact kind of tool) Equifax put up a site for consumers to see if they might be affected. The terms of use on the site currently say users give up legal rights to sue Equifax by using the site. This is an example of what NOT to do after a data breach.

Re: Flimsy Argument
Like many breaches before, consumers will get a year or two of free credit report monitoring -- and not much else. Has anyone figured out how to really handle a data breach better?

Re: Flimsy Argument
If only your vision was embraced by the likes of Equifax as some 143 Million People were impacted (I am sure we will get notifications soon).    It just seems to me that at least in the US, as we could put a man on the Moon, we can figure out a way to fix this.   Maybe I'm expecting too much.

Re: Flimsy Argument
I recently saw a developer tool that might help create honeypots automatically and easily. Maybe if more tools can deter malware by making it harder to find weaknesses in networks -- we can eliminate more of these kinds of data breaches.

Re: Flimsy Argument
The need to be aware and do what we can to mitigate is critical.    But there is so much we can do.

Re: Flimsy Argument
This is a challenge--no doubt.    It seems as if a day does not go by without some sort of news like this--Equifax being the latest.  What is irritating about Equifax is apparently the lowlifes who were in charge sold stock before hand.

I am sure Verizon will sort it all out--they knew what they were getting into.

Re: Flimsy Argument
What is the maximum penalty for Verizon here? I'm sure it's less than the amount they knocked off of Yahoo's purchase price..?

The larger damage is the reputation that Yahoo used to have.. and that Verizon will have to re-build if it intends to gather more personal info with Oath and its future endeavors.
