Yahoo has said that the majority of its three billion client accounts were influenced in a hacking assault going back to 2013.
The organization, which was assumed control by Verizon not long ago, said an examination had demonstrated the rupture went considerably more distant than initially thought.
The stolen information did exclude passwords in clear content, installment card or financial balance information, it included.
Beforehand the web mammoth had said “more than one billion” of its records had been hit.
Yahoo said that while its most recent declaration did not speak to another “security issue” it was sending messages to all the “extra influenced client accounts”.
The organization included that it was “proceeding to work intimately with law implementation”.

Verizon: Yahoo information break may hit bargain
Yahoo’s takeover by the enormous US telecoms firm Verizon was finished on 13 June.
The arrangement was first declared a year ago when the battling organization consented to pitch its fundamental web business to Verizon for $4.8bn.
That figure was later sliced to $4.5bn after Yahoo revealed that it had been the casualty, in 2013 and 2014, of two immense security ruptures.
Verizon has consolidated its AOL backup and Yahoo into another business called Vow.
In Tuesday’s announcement Verizon’s central data security officer Chandra McMahon stated: “Verizon is focused on the most noteworthy models of responsibility and straightforwardness, and we proactively work to guarantee the wellbeing and security of our clients and systems in an advancing scene of online dangers.”
“Our interest in Yahoo is enabling that group to keep on taking critical strides to improve their security, and in addition advantage from Verizon’s involvement and assets.”
