    There are lots of things to do. I'll try to get them into order here:

    How to get back your accounts:

    How to recover a lost Hotmail password / How to regain control of a hacked account

    Yahoo - How to recover a lost password / How to regain control of a hacked account

    After getting back your accounts try the steps listed here :

    How to check and cleanup a Yahoo Mail account after it's been hacked

    After the obvious steps such as changing your passwords for all accounts and running security scans on your computer I think the best gain going forward comes from turning on the 2-step verification features available from Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, etc.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions!
