Yahoo emailed out to their users saying they were nearing a $117.5 million settlement that would end a massive class-action lawsuit related to a devastating series of data breaches and intrusions from 2012 to 2016.
In 2017, Yahoo admitted that all 3 billion of their user accounts were broken into in August 2013. In their email on Wednesday, Yahoo also says the company was hacked to varying degrees in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Yahoo is now offering two free years of credit-monitoring services to those with accounts that were affected by any of the breaches. If you already have a credit-monitoring service, you can ask Yahoo to give you $100.
