SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — In a story March 13, The Associated Press reported that more than 1 billion Yahoo users had been affected by two security breaches. The story should have specified that more than 1 billion user accounts had been broken into, as some accounts might have belonged to the same individuals.

The AP also reported that Yahoo's board withheld Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's cash bonus and stock award to punish her for the breaches. The story did not say that Mayer offered to forgo the stock award to punish herself.
