    Yahoo hacked

    The hack, which the DOJ said was initiated in January 2014, affected at least 500 million Yahoo accounts Hackers stole data that included names, email addresses and passwords

    The hack, which the DOJ said was initiated in January 2014, affected at least 500 million Yahoo accounts. Some of the stolen information was used to "obtain unauthorized access to the contents of accounts at Yahoo, Google and other webmail providers, including accounts of Russian journalists, US and Russian government officials and private-sector employees of financial, transportation and other companies," the DOJ said in a statement.
    Hackers stole data that included names, email addresses and passwords -- but not financial information, according to Yahoo's announcement regarding the breaches.
    The officers of the FSB -- Russia's successor to the Soviet Union's KGB -- were identified as Igor Anatolyevich Sushchin, 43, and Dmitry Aleksandrovich Dokuchaev, 33. The two allegedly conspired with Russian national Alexsey Alexseyevich Belan, aka "Magg," 29, and Karim Baratov, aka "Kay," "Karim Taloverov" and "Karim Akehmet Tokbergenov," 22, who is a resident of Canada.
    Dokuchaev was arrested in a Russian sweep in December and accused of spying for the US, a lawyer for one of the men charged with Dokuchaev said. A Justice Department official said the agency has not confirmed it is the same person and declined further comment to CNN.
    Baratov was arrested Tuesday morning "without incident" in Ancaster, Ontario, Toronto police spokesman Mark Pugash told CNN.
    "The criminal conduct at issue -- carried out and otherwise facilitated by officers from an FSB unit that serves as the FBI's point of contact in Moscow on cybercrime matters -- is beyond the pale," acting Assistant Attorney General Mary McCord said at a news conference in Washington.

    Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer publicly thanked US authorities Wednesday, saying she was "very grateful" to the FBI and DOJ.
    The San Francisco FBI office has scheduled a news conference for later Wednesday afternoon on undisclosed topics.
    Yahoo has been breached at least twice, and the company previously said a September 2014 breach was state-sponsored but declined to identify who it believed was responsible.
