The massive data breach of 1 billion accounts Yahoo revealed in 2016 [webmasterworld.com] was an underestimate as it's now come to light that it was as many as 3 billion accounts affected.

Once again, the problem of identity theft rears its head for even more of Yahoo's account holders.

A spokesman for Oath, the Verizon unit that now includes Yahoo, said the company determined within the past week that the break-in was much worse than thought, after it received new information from outside the company. He declined to elaborate on that information. Compromised customer information included usernames, passwords, and in some cases telephone numbers and dates of birth, the spokesman said.
