File photo of Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer delivering her keynote address at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las VegasBy Dustin Volz WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Six Democratic U.S. senators on Tuesday demanded Yahoo Inc explain why hackers' theft of user information for 500 million accounts two years ago only came to light last week and lambasted the company's handling of the breach as "unacceptable." The lawmakers said they were "disturbed" the 2014 intrusion, disclosed by the company on Thursday, was detected so long after the hack occurred. "That means millions of Americans’ data may have been compromised for two years," the senators wrote in a joint letter addressed to Yahoo Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer. "This is unacceptable." Yahoo did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the letter, which was signed by Senators Patrick Leahy, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, Richard Blumenthal, Ron Wyden and Edward Markey.

FILE - In this Jan. 11, 2013, file photo, the Social Security Administration's main campus is seen in Woodlawn, Md. More than 60 million retirees, disabled workers, spouses and children rely on monthly Social Security benefits. That’s nearly one in five Americans. The trustees who oversee Social Security say the program has enough money to pay full benefits until 2034. But at that point, Social Security will collect only enough taxes to pay 79 percent of benefits. Unless Congress acts, millions of people on fixed incomes would get an automatic 21 percent cut in benefits.
