The U.S. Division of Justice is able to indict 4 individuals within the 2013 hack of Yahoo by which knowledge from more than a billion accounts have been acquired, according to a Bloomberg report. I’ve reached out to the DOJ for affirmation and extra particulars.
Citing somebody briefed on the indictments, Bloomberg stories that one of many alleged hackers is presently in Canada, and should face prompt arrest. The opposite three are apparently in Russia, which does complicate issues.
Yahoo recently revealed in testimony to a Senate committee that it was in cooperation with state, federal, and overseas governments relating to the breaches, which appears solely logical contemplating the quantity of knowledge compromised. Apparently the efforts have borne fruit.
(Disclosure: Verizon, which owns Aol, which owns TechCrunch, is within the course of of shopping for Yahoo.)
