The Securities and Exchange Commission said Tuesday that Altaba Inc., formerly Yahoo, failed to properly investigate the breach and consider whether it should be disclosed to shareholders. The SEC said the company knew within days of the breach that Russian hackers had obtained usernames, phone numbers, birth dates, encrypted passwords, and security questions and answers for at least hundreds of millions of users, and perhaps billions.

    Verizon: It's All About 5G, Says Moffett-Nathanson

    The big story in the outlook for Verizon Communications (VZ) is not the one that people were talking about this morning, the slight improvement in its service revenue, but rather what 5G wireless networks mean for the company, according to a note from Craig Moffett of the eponymous Moffett-Nathanson boutique research firm. Verizon’s financials, he writes, are “getting gradually better,” and most would judge the report to be “solid." “But mere solidity is not a strategy,” he cautions. Moffett, who rates the stock at Buy, thinks that Verizon is being much more ambitious than anyone else in U.S. telecom with its approach to building out fixed wireless connections to homes and businesses with 5G, and may even have gotten “ahead of its skis." It’s good to be ambitious, but Verizon’s ambitions in 5G are well ahead of the rest of the industry’s, particularly in fixed wireless broadband (FWBB).

Speaking on the post-earnings conference call, Verizon Chief Financial Officer Matthew Ellis said the company was not interested at this time in acquiring broadcast or cable networks, but continued to look at "over-the-top" options, or cheaper streaming video packages with fewer channels. Verizon was a bidder for Twenty-First Century Fox Inc assets, which Walt Disney Co is trying to buy for $52.4 billion.

    U.S. regulator fines Altaba $35 million over 2014 Yahoo email hack

    WASHINGTON/SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - U.S. regulators fined Altaba Inc, the company formerly known as Yahoo! Inc, $35 million on Tuesday to settle charges that kept its massive 2014 cyber security breach a secret from investors for more than two years. The Securities and Exchange Commission's case marks the first time it has gone after a company for failing to disclose a cyber security breach. Yahoo's information security team learned just days after the December 2014 breach that Russian hackers had stolen the company's "crown jewels," including email addresses, encrypted passwords and security questions, the SEC said in a statement.
