The plaintiff alleges the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that Yahoo! Inc failed to encrypt its users' personal information and/or failed to encrypt its users' personal data with an up-to-date and secure encryption scheme, that consequently, sensitive personal account information from more than 1 billion users was vulnerable to theft, that a data breach resulting in the theft of personal user data would foreseeably cause a significant drop in user engagement with Yahoo! Inc's websites and services, and that as a result, Yahoo! Inc 's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On September 22, 2016, Yahoo! Inc. revealed that a “recent investigation” confirmed that sensitive personal account information of at least 500 million account users “was stolen from the company’s network in late 2014 by what it believes is a state-sponsored attack.” Reportedly users’ names, email addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords, and some encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers were included in the data breach.

Those who purchased Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) shares should contact the Shareholders Foundation, Inc.
