Yahoo Says Hackers Stole Data on 500 Million Users in 2014
雅虎5亿用户信息被盗,称黑客由“国家资助”

SAN FRANCISCO — Yahoo announced Thursday that the account information for at least 500 million users was stolen by hackers two years ago, in the biggest known intrusion of one company’s computer network.

旧金山——雅虎(Yahoo)周四宣布,黑客在两年前盗走了至少5亿用户的账号信息。这是已知的对单个企业计算机网络的最大规模入侵。

In a statement, Yahoo said user information — including names, email addresses, telephone numbers, birth dates, passwords and, in some cases security questions — was compromised in 2014 by what it believed was a “state-sponsored actor.” It did not name the country involved.

雅虎在声明中称,用户信息——包括姓名、电子邮件地址、电话号码、生日、密码,在某些情况下还有安保问题——于2014年被据信“得到国家资助的黑客”窃取。它没有明确指出具体是哪个国家。

The company said that it was working with law enforcement officials and that it was invalidating existing security questions and asking users to change their passwords. Yahoo also encouraged people to review other online accounts for suspicious activity, change passwords and security questions on those accounts, and watch out for suspicious emails.

雅虎称,它正与执法官员合作,将现有的安保问题作废,敦促用户更换密码。雅虎还建议人们检查其他存在可疑活动的网络账户,更改那些账户的密码和安保问题,并警惕可疑邮件。

Verizon Communications is moving forward with a $4.8 billion acquisition of Yahoo, which was announced in July. In a statement Thursday, a Verizon spokesman, Bob Varettoni, said the company learned of the breach of Yahoo’s systems only two days ago and had “limited information and understanding of the impact.”

根据今年7月宣布的消息,威瑞森电信(Verizon Communication)正在推进以48亿美元收购雅虎的交易。威瑞森的发言人鲍勃·瓦雷东尼(Bob Varettoni)在周四的声明中称,公司两天前才知道雅虎系统遭到入侵,“掌握的信息有限,对其影响的了解也有限”。

Yahoo said it learned of the data breach this summer after hackers posted to underground forums and online marketplaces what they claimed was stolen Yahoo data. A Yahoo team investigated the data and was unable to confirm that the stolen data had originated from a breach at Yahoo. But in investigating the security of its systems, the company discovered that there was another breach, by what it believes was a state-sponsored actor, that dated to 2014.

雅虎称其是在今年夏天得知数据外泄一事的,那之前,黑客在地下论坛和线上市场中贴出了据其所说窃自雅虎的数据。雅虎的一个团队调查过相关数据,未能确认被窃数据源自雅虎遭到的入侵。但该公司在就自身系统的安全性展开调查的过程中发现,2014年发生过另一次入侵,入侵者据其认为是得到国家资助的黑客。

“The stolen Yahoo data is critical because it not only leads to a single system but to users’ connections to their banks, social media profiles, other financial services and users’ friends and family,” said Alex Holden, the founder of Hold Security, which has been tracking the flow of stolen Yahoo credentials on the underground web. “This is one of the biggest breaches of people’s privacy and very far-reaching.”

“失窃的雅虎数据很重要,因为它们不只通往单个系统,还牵涉到用户和银行、社交媒体配置文件、其他金融服务以及朋友和家人的联系,”Hold Security公司创始人亚历克斯·霍尔顿(Alex Holden)表示。该公司一直在地下网络中追踪失窃的雅虎用户帐号凭证的流向。“这是人们的隐私遭到的最大规模的侵犯之一,影响非常深远。”

Such state-sponsored attacks on U.S. technology companies, Yahoo said in a statement, are becoming routine. “Online intrusions and thefts by state-sponsored actors have become increasingly common across the technology industry,” it said.

雅虎在声明中称,美国科技企业遭遇的这类得到国家资助的攻击正在成为常态。“在整个科技行业,由得到国家资助的黑客实施的网络入侵和盗窃行为已经变得越来越常见,”它说。
