United States Department of Justice accused a group of hackers over huge theft of Yahoo user accounts, two Russian spies from Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) are among them, according to BBC.

Yahoo previously announced that "state-sponsored" hackers were behind the 2014 breach affecting 500 million accounts, but did not specify.

Charges in this case were pressed against Dmitry Aleksandrovich Dokuchaev, 33, a Russian national and FSB officer, and Igor Anatolyevich Sushchin, 43, a Russian national and FSB officer. Two others — Alexsey Alexseyevich Belan, 29, a Russian national and resident and Karim Baratov, 22, a Canadian and Kazakh national and a resident of Canada, are also suspects in the case, and were supposedly working for FSB officers.
