What did the hackers steal from Yahoo in 2014?

Yes you listen correct hackers hacked password in 2014 and company announce it in 2016.
In September 2016, Yahoo! announced that 500M passwords had been stolen in 2014.

500 million of its user accounts was stolen in 2014 by what it believed was a state-sponsored actor, a theft that appeared to the biggest cyber breach ever. Cyber crooks may have stolen names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth and encrypted passwords, the company said. Unprotected passwords, payment card data and bank account information did not appear to have been compromised, Yahoo said, signaling that some of the most valuable user data was not taken.

The hacked emails are being selling on dark web.
