It is important to note that, in connection with Yahoo'sDecember 2016 announcement of the August 2013 theft, Yahoo took action to protect all accounts.
The company initially said that personal information including names, email addresses and security questions relating to one billion accounts were all accessed by a "third-party".
From the investigation, the company claims that user account information who were affected did not include information such as password, credit cards, or bank accounts. That means no Yahoo account was left unaffected by the data theft.
Prior to Tuesday's disclosure, Yahoo already held the mantle for suffering the worst data breach in history - now its infamy is solidified.
John Yanchunis, a lawyer representing affected account holders, said the figures were "really mind-numbing when you think about it". This puts the total number of affected accounts at around 3 billion, about 40% of the world's total population.
Following the hacking revelations previous year, Yahoo required password changes and invalidated unencrypted security questions to protect user information. The company also added that they are continuing to work closely with law enforcement, and the US Federal Communications commision.
Affected users are required to change their passwords, and their security questions to reset login credentials have been invalidated and have to be renewed.
The new information about the breach is coming from an investigation after Verizon acquired Yahoo in a $4.48 billion deal.
Whether or not people use Yahoo services, they should always practice proper computer hygiene, experts say, such as not reusing passwords and implementing two-factor authentication on all their accounts.
