A week after Yahoo said it was subjected to the worst data breach in history, details about who nabbed info on 500 million email accounts remain sketchy.
At least one firm says it wasn't a "state-sponsored actor" as Yahoo claimed, but like many things related to hacks, cybersecurity and the dark web, even that claim is impossible to verify.
The group responsible for the Yahoo hack are cybercriminals," said Andrew Komarov, chief intelligence officer at InfoArmor.
