Internet giant Yahoo! Inc. has announced that one billion user accounts may have been hacked in 2013, reports Business Wire.
The company also disclosed that they believe this hack to be distinct from the incident at the company on Sept. 22, 2016.
Stolen information may have included names, email addresses, birthdays, passwords, telephone numbers, and security questions and answers.
Yahoo was made aware of the breach in November when law enforcement approached them with files that a third party claimed were full of Yahoo user data.
With the help of outside forensic experts, Yahoo verified that the files appear to be for user accounts associated with its service.
If verified, the hack would be one of monumental proportions.
Of course, those on social media managed to find the funny side.
