Yahoo and Verizon agreed to cut their deal price by up to $US350 million following Yahoo’s disclosure of two data breaches, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The companies also agreed to split the costs of the breaches, according to the report.

Verizon agreed to buy Yahoo’s ailing internet business last year for $US4.8 billion.
