Money. They sell this information to other sources for huge sums of money. You would be surprised what they can get and do with your information. One crime leads to another. Soon you will hear of a bank hack where customer lost alot of money and if they dig I can guarantee it will link back to this hack.

The Sunnyvale, Calif., company declined to explain how it reached its conclusions about the attack for security reasons, but said it is working with the FBI and other law enforcement. Yahoo began investigating a possible breach in July, around the time the tech site Motherboard reported that a hacker who uses the name “Peace” was trying to sell account information belonging to 200 million Yahoo users.
