Yesterday, Yahoo have made another announcement by confirming that the count of the affected users not one billion, it was Three Billions in counts that was affected by the data breached. This means every yahoo users have been affected. 
Since disclosing the hack, Yahoo continued to add more numbers of accounts compromised, but today’s announcement makes it clear that if you had a Yahoo email account, you were part of the breach.

The hack exposed user account information, which includes name, email address, hashed passwords, birthdays, phone numbers, and, in some cases, “encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers,” the company said back in 2016. But Yahoo also confirms that passwords were not stolen in clear text, and hackers did not obtain bank or credit card information tied to the Yahoo accounts.
