Russian Agents Were Behind Yahoo Breach, U.S. Says

Two Russian intelligence agents who were supposed to help Americans hunt for hackers instead directed a sweeping criminal conspiracy that broke into 500 million Yahoo accounts in 2014, the Justice Department charged on Wednesday.

The Russian government then used the information they obtained to focus on foreign officials, business executives and journalists, federal prosecutors said. The targets included numerous financial executives, executives at an American cloud computing company, an airline official and even a casino regulator in Nevada.

WASHINGTON — Four people, including two Russian intelligence officers, have been charged in a Yahoo hacking attack that compromised the personal information of hundreds of millions of consumers, the Justice Department said Wednesday.

Federal prosecutors alleged the suspects hacked into Yahoo systems to "steal information from about 500 million accounts and then used some of that stolen information to obtain unauthorized access to the contents of accounts at Yahoo, Google and other webmail providers."
