DUBLIN, April 11 Yahoo's European
regulator said it is preparing to give the U.S. Internet firm
the results of an investigation into the 2014 theft of data from
500 million users, including possible remedial action to avoid a
repeat of the breach.
Yahoo said in September last year that hackers had stolen
the data in 2014, prompting criticism from U.S. politicians into
the delay in notifying customers.
Ireland's Data Protection Commissioner, the lead European
regulator on privacy issues for Yahoo because the company's
European headquarters are in Dublin, said she would issue the
report "in the next couple of weeks".
"We are preparing to serve the final report on Yahoo EMEA
Ltd and require of them any remedial actions we have
identified," Helen Dixon said in an interview. It will be up to
Yahoo whether to make the report public, she said.
