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.

The hackers also used the Yahoo data to send spam and steal credit card
and gift card information. The attackers also sought to break into at
least 50 Google accounts, including those of Russian officials and
employees of a Russian cybersecurity firm.

On Wednesday, prosecutors unsealed an indictment containing 47 criminal
charges against the two agents of Russia’s Federal Security Service, or
F.S.B., as well as two outside hackers with whom they worked with on the
scheme, one of the largest known thefts of data from a private corporation.

If you feel a need to point out a troll, please don't repeat the
contents of the trolling message. Some of us already have his messages
filtered out - so the only reason I saw it is because you quoted it.
