Yahoo said Tuesday that the number of accounts impacted by a massive security breach in 2013 was three times larger than it had originally announced — meaning all accounts were affected.
Roughly 3 billion accounts were breached, the company now says, up from its earlier estimate of more than 1 billion.
Washington — Lawmakers in the U.S. Senate are scheduled to debate legislation on Wednesday that would set rules for self-driving cars at a time when automakers are already putting cars on the road that are capable of at least some hands-free driving.
Critics still hope to derail measure citing fears for public safety
A U.S. Senate committee appears to be the last major obstacle in the way of widespread testing of self-driving and even driverless vehicles on public roads.
Last week, a bill focusing on autonomous vehicles called the American Vision for Safer Transportation Through Advancement of Revolutionary Technologies (AV START) Act was introduced in the U.S. Senate and is expected to be merged with the SELF-DRIVE Act, which is a similar bill that passed the U.S. House earlier this month. Consumer advocates worry that these bills remove too many safety regulations that could leave consumers at risk as self-driving cars take the roads.
A U.S. Senate bill aiming to pave the way for the development of driverless vehicles is a threat to highway safety, the group Consumer Watchdog asserted.
The bill, introduced by Sens. John Thune and Gary Peters, “follows the dangerous route chosen by the House of Representatives when it rushed to pass a bill that threatens highway safety and leaves a regulatory void rather than enacting necessary protections and safety standards,” Consumer Watchdog said in a news release.
