Prosecutors today unsealed an indictment charging four men, including two Russian intelligence officials, with a 2014 hack of Yahoo that affected 500 million accounts. The U.S. claimed the FSB agents – Dmitry Dokuchaev and Igor Sushchin – conspired with an FBI Most Wanted hacker Alexey Belan to carry out the attack. Canadian police arrested a fourth individual, Kazakh national Karim Baratov, for his alleged involvement in the breach.
