The Russians responsible for the attacks on Yahoo

The US Department of Justice has determined that Russian attackers are attacking Yahoo servers. There are four specialists, two of whom work for the FSB.

A few months ago, Yahoo representatives confirmed hacking on their servers, storing data from hundreds of millions of users. The head of the portal claimed that Russians could be behind burglaries.

The Department of Justice decided to test this claim and succeeded in confirming it. The investigation has revealed that four Russian hackers are responsible for the attacks, two of which are working for the FSB’s government intelligence agency.

Dmitry Dokuchaev and Igor Sushchin are spies working for Russian intelligence and, according to investigators, they are directly responsible for cyber attacks. Americans have long accused the Russians of such action, but this is the first case where evidence has been found to directly link them to them.

The other two hacked defendants attacked the Yahoo servers, including Alexsey Belan and Karim Baratov, who helped them organize. Baratov was arrested this week in Canada, and since the US has no extradition treaty with Russia, the man will remain in the US jail.

Justice wants to put hackers accused of financial fraud, economic espionage, business theft and computer hacking.
