While FBI Investigators are searching for the evidence of so called classified information on the personal laptops of public officials, should you be concern about the security and safety of your private information stored on your mainstream email server? How about your favorite yahoo mail?
According to many security experts Clinton did not just got caught using a secret Gmail account, she actually hired a government employee to install and hookup her own email server for out-of-office communications from her personal residence. That high profile server was actually unencrypted for a very long time. The bottom line is we should not be like Hillary Clinton or her staffer when it comes to emails. The lesson should be learned by everyone to keep personal emails safe.
Earlier this summer, Verizon agreed to purchase Yahoo for almost $5 billion. However, this was few days before Yahoo! publically acknowledged that over 500 million of their personal email accounts were compromised. Wow!!! Is Verizon getting a fair value after all? That may depend on Yahoo! Mail existing users like you and me. It was just announced that yahoo main subscribers have filed a class action lawsuit against Yahoo!, one of the first web-based service provider. The lawsuit was filed over allegations that the company failed to protect its users personal information. In addition to negligence the company attorneys in Illinois filed a complaint against Yahoo alleging breach of contract and fraud. So the deal that looked so sweet just few months ago looks very uncomfortable today. Can Verizon back out of the deal? Should It? It looks like we have to wait until after the election to find out. However one thing is certain, if Hilary wins so will the Verizon. And so you should drop your Yahoo! Mail service together with your compromised emails and get yourself a new server somewhere on the remote cloud.
