Every Yahoo account was affected by 2013 hack, Verizon now says
Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) announced today that a 2013 hack into Yahoo's network affected all Yahoo accounts, roughly 3 billion, after previous estimates said 1 billion accounts were affected. Yahoo, which was acquired by Verizon after the hack was disclosed and gave a slight price break on the deal because of it (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/verizon-and-yahoo-agree-to-revised-deal-cutting-350-million-from-acquisition-price-2017-02-21), is notifying affected accounts that were not previously contacted. Verizon pointed users to a frequently asked questions site set up in the wake of the hack (https://yahoo.com/security-update), originally disclosed years after the hack in December 2016, for additional information.
