Such things take months or sometimes days to figure out and made public to customer, but the breach was so big that customers, business partner may thing of dropping of yahoo, as it’s not safe on this type of standard.
"The dark cloud this casts will be very long and will likely impact the merger agreement," Jeff Kagan, a Georgia-based telecommunications industry analyst, said in an email. "We'll just have to wait and see what happens next."
