By Wendy Lee and Marissa Lang - Wednesday Oct 4, 2017
Yahoo said Tuesday that the number of people impacted by a massive security breach in 2013 was three times larger than it had originally announced — meaning all accounts were affected. Roughly 3 billion accounts were breached, the company now says, up from its earlier estimate of more than 1 billion. The company has yet to disclose the cause of the breach. The new information emerged after Verizon Communications Inc., which purchased Yahoo for $4.48 billion in June, received more intelligence about the breach with the help of outside forensic experts. Analysts believe this is the nation’s largest security breach based on the number of accounts affected.

- Sick puppies spur New York scrutiny of non-profit rescues
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Sunday Aug 27, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — When Alexis Kozmon and her husband decided to get a dog for their 6-year-old daughter, they chose to adopt rather than buy from a breeder to teach the child the value of rescuing.Four weeks later, the puppy the family named Sugar was dying painfully from distemper, and despite $3,000 in veterinary treatments, the only humane option was to put her down. Two of Sugar's siblings met the same fate. Kozmon faulted the volunteer-based rescue that had trucked the puppies from Texas, but when she complained to New York's consumer protection agency, she learned such groups are exempt from oversight."There was a loophole," said Kozmon, who lives in Middletown, Connecticut, but adopted from a group in southeastern New York.
