Yahoo is poised to confirm a massive data breach of its service, according to several sources close to the situation, hacking that has exposed several hundred million user accounts.
The announcement, which is expected to come this week, also possible larger implications on the $4.8 billion sale of Yahoo's core business - which is at the core of this hack - to Verizon.
That deal is now moving to completion, but the companies cannot be integrated until it is approved by a number of regulatory agencies, as well as Yahoo shareholders.
