Subject: [FD] Yahoo! hacked on October 5, 2014...

I submitted to Yahoo! earlier some documentation detailing both the "shellshock"/bash vulnerability and how my research on it lead me to discovering that Yahoo!'s internal servers had been compromised, and that the individuals were working on traversing their network. It was not until I contacted several media outlets and the FBI that they actually responded. However, once they responded, they did confirm the servers were breached. Their answer to the lack of contact methods available is absolutely absurd in my opinion. In fact, the entire response was a joke. The fact that they informed me I could have used the bug bounty system to report it - though it's not eligible for a bounty - is equivalent to saying - "Thanks, but so we're clear, we don't owe you crap, but let us know if anything else comes up." Perhaps if they weren't busy paying CEO's absurd salaries, they could afford to hire an IT staff that's not fresh out of ITT Technical Institute and sporting pull-ups.

Please see the rest of everything related to this at And for their response. Email copy has been attached.

These are the two servers that were 100% positively identified as being compromised, with the server being the initial point of entry via Shellshock.
