Yahoo data breach payout blocked by judge

A judge has rejected Yahoo’s attempt to draw a line under a series of breaches it experienced between 2013 and 2016.

The firm had proposed a payout to lawyers acting on behalf of affected US and Israeli users.

But while the deal said the attorneys could claim up to $37.5m (£28.5m) in fees and costs, it did not disclose the sum reserved for victims.

The California judge also objected to Yahoo being too vague about what remedial steps it was taking.
