On Thursday Verizon said that it was leaning towards declarig as a “material” event the data breach disclosed three weeks ago by Yahoo.

According to Craig Silliman, general counsel for Verizon says that,”I think we have a reasonable basis to believe right now that impact is material, And we’re looking to Yahoo to demonstrate to us the full impact if they believe it’s not. They’ll need to show us that, but the process is in the works.”

On 2014 Yahoo was affected and at least 500 million user accounts were hacked. The Tech giant said that the breach was conducted by “state-sponsored” hackers.

According to U.S officials said privately that the FBI has determined that Russian government hackers are behind the breach. This is the largest data breach in history, which Yahoo said it discovered over the summer.
