In a statement, Yahoo said that there were third parties who had illegally accessed more than 1 billion user data. The hacker also managed to obtain a combination of data belonging to Yahoo users.

Starting from the name, email address, telephone number, date of birth, protected passwords, and in some cases security questions and answers also appear. The good news is that data in the form of credit cards or account numbers are not stolen because they are stored on a different system.

Yahoo parties still do not know the figure of the hacker who managed to destroy the security system. As an anticipatory measure, Yahoo has also sent notifications to its email service users to change their passwords.

So, for those of you who are still active in using Yahoo email, immediately change your password, OK! Especially if the email is often used for important activities.
