According the Yahoo statement on their Tumblr page, the software used by the hackers accessed many accounts but the exact number of victims was not revealed. It is supposed that not Yahoo itself but a third party where yahoo login data was stored was really attacked. Actually, a Yahoo legal complaint is open and they work with the law enforcement to find the source of the attack.
Yahoo’s customers are forced to change their passwords, to have a better, more secure password and to not use the same login info for many services on the web. Users who have a mobile number associated with their Yahoo accounts will be asked to enter a code transmitted with a SMS message.
Yahoo is and will remain one of the most popular providers of free email accounts and maybe this is the motivation for hackers to test here their abilities.
