About the Lawsuit

Yahoo and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

On September 22, 2016, Yahoo announced that hackers had obtained information in late 2014 on more than 500 million Yahoo accounts.

Then, on December 14, 2016, Yahoo disclosed that hackers stole data associated with more than one billion user accounts in August 2013. Yahoo further stated that it has not been able to identify the intrusion associated with this theft, but that it believes this incident is likely distinct from the hacking incident it disclosed on September 22, 2016.

On this news, the price of Yahoo’s shares plummeted.
