From Tumblr:

As we prior to now disclosed in November, regulation enforcement supplied us with knowledge information that a 3rd birthday celebration claimed used to be Yahoo consumer knowledge. We analyzed this knowledge with the help of out of doors forensic mavens and located that it sounds as if to be Yahoo consumer knowledge. In line with additional research of this knowledge via the forensic mavens, we consider an unauthorized 3rd birthday celebration, in August 2013, stole knowledge related to multiple billion consumer accounts. We've now not been in a position to spot the intrusion related to this robbery. We consider this incident is most probably distinct from the incident we disclosed on September 22, 2016.

For probably affected accounts, the stolen consumer account knowledge could have incorporated names, e mail addresses, telephone numbers, dates of start, hashed passwords (the use of MD5) and, in some instances, encrypted or unencrypted safety questions and solutions. The investigation signifies that the stolen knowledge didn't come with passwords in transparent textual content, cost card knowledge, or checking account knowledge. Cost card knowledge and checking account knowledge don't seem to be saved in the device the corporate believes used to be affected.
