Yesterday, the US Justice Department charged some Russian spies after affecting 500 million people in 2014 for a Yahoo breach. Members of the Russian intelligence agency planned with criminal hackers according to the officials. Yahoo said that ‘state sponsored’ hackers were behind the 2014 breach. The suspects are also alleged to target Google accounts as well. Alexsey Belan has been on the FBI’s most wanted list for three years. Around 8 million UK accounts have been affected including users of BT and Sky.
