RE: DATA BREACHES FOR CANCELLED/ DEKETED ACCOUNTS

I cancelled my LinkedIn account about 5 years ago and haven't used it since then. I am therefore puzzled as to why it keeps showing up as having had a "data breach" and why this matters at all?! There was also some "data breach" in regard to a website for Avatars?! I have never heard of this website and can't imagine why I would ever use it! Why did this show up as a breach in my account?!

In regard to the specific accounts which have had a data breach, I have either cancelled them, deleted them, or have no memory of ever having used them in the first place. I have also changed my passwords for all of my email accounts, many times over the past 5 years, so again, I have no idea how information from a cancelled account could be of use to anyone. Can someone explain this to me?! Thank you!
