TORONTO _ Yahoo is now facing a proposed class action on behalf of Canadians whose personal information may have been stolen.
A Toronto-based law firm says a notice of action was filed today.
The class action will take in Canadians whose user account information was stolen or whose email accounts were accessed.
The representative plaintiff is a Canadian who used Yahoo for her email.
The proposed $50-million suit comes on the heels of a similar action in the United States.
Yahoo published a security notice in September and another earlier this week that its computer networks were hit with cyberattacks.
