The Yahoos at YAHOO Confirm Massive Security Breach

Thanks YAHOO. It's good to know protecting your valued user accounts was priority number one. According to Recode, a hacker named “Peace” hacked into at least 500 million user accounts bringing chaos to the internet giant just as its sale to Verizon is pending. Details including names, passwords, email addresses, phone numbers and security questions were stolen from the company’s network.

"But the good thing is they got this information out right away. And --- oh, wait --- no, this happened in 2014," Glenn said sarcastically on his radio program.

Take heart, though, YAHOO believes credit card and bank details were not included in the stolen data. They've been notifying affected users to change their passwords and invalidating security questions so they can’t be used to access accounts (but don't worry if you use those same security questions on other accounts because internet thieves never compile details from multiple sources).

Read below or watch the clip for answers to these risk-free questions:

• If you run YAHOO, should you feel like a yahoo?

• Did Alaska or Iowa hack into YAHOO?

• If Alaska is the state-sponsored hacker, will you get free salmon?

• Should you care if you don't have a YAHOO account?

• Is Google or Ask Jeeves next?

GLENN: Hey, no big deal. Yahoo has confirmed a massive hack that only affected between 200 and 500 million emails.

JEFFY: Eh.

STU: Yeah, I think their first guess was two, and then they were up to four. And then it's 500 million.

GLENN: So it's only half a billion email addresses.

JEFFY: How many emails do you have in your email address?

GLENN: Yeah, so no big deal. No. 200 million users was the first. We're now talking 500 million users affected nationwide. But the good thing is they got -- they got this information out right away. And -- oh, wait. No, this happened in 2012 -- '14. So they -- you know, they --

PAT: Well, it only took them two years.

GLENN: Yeah, they got it out as soon as --

PAT: You know.

GLENN: They believe this was a state that broke in.

PAT: What? Like Alaska?

STU: No. No, Pat. No.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Like Russia.

STU: Yeah, a hacker working on behalf of Russia or China or something.

PAT: Shoot.

STU: Pretty amazing.

PAT: I was scared there for a second. I thought Iowa --

JEFFY: Alaska broke into the Yahoo email?

PAT: Apparently, Iowa, somebody.

GLENN: But the good news is they emailed salmon to me.

STU: It's interesting.

GLENN: Yeah, it was crazy.

PAT: You know, they broke into Yahoo, but I didn't have a Yahoo account so I didn't care.

GLENN: And then they came --

PAT: And then they came to Google.

GLENN: And you didn't have a Google account.

PAT: I didn't have a Google account.

GLENN: Yeah, and didn't care?

PAT: And didn't care?

GLENN: Then they came for GlennBeck.com.

PAT: And I did have a GlennBeck.com.

STU: I think that would be further down the list of hacking.

GLENN: Right. Well, it might be.

JEFFY: It was too late then.

GLENN: Right. So I had an Ask Jeeves account, and I didn't have one. And so --

PAT: Yeah, Lycos, though. You got a Lycos account, right?

GLENN: Lycos, yeah. No, I don't.

JEFFY: If only someone would have stopped Alaska from the very beginning.

PAT: Right. That's what I was saying.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
