Yahoo Japan says it is unaffected by giant hack [japantimes.co.jp]

Yahoo Japan Corp. said Friday no customer information was leaked from the company and no damage has been confirmed after hackers stole sensitive information from at least 500 million Yahoo accounts.
According to Yahoo Japan, the firm offers its own service by borrowing the brand name from Yahoo in the United States, and its database and other infrastructure are separate from the U.S. firm.

“We have personnel and technological exchanges” with Yahoo in the U.S., but the services provided in Japan and the U.S. “are different services run by different companies,” a Yahoo Japan official said.
