Yahoo has warned that someone tried to access a lot of Yahoo mail accounts and gather data on the recently sent e-mails. Yahoo believes thet the usernames and passwords to the Yahoo mail accounts were not stolen from the Yahoo database but from a third party. It is possible that the user credentials may have been stolen during the recent data leaks (such as was the Adobe breach) and the affected users only use the same password for several services. The owners of the affected accounts should have been notified via e-mail or SMS.
