Former NSA hackers: Yahoo indictments won't slow down Russian cyberattacks

by Chris Bing • 2 years ago

Newly unveiled indictments against a group of hackers working for Russian intelligence, who were involved in breaching Yahoo and Google, will do little to deter future cyberattacks against the U.S., former NSA analysts and government lawyers tell CyberScoop. The Justice Department revealed charges on Wednesday against four alleged hackers responsible for compromising upwards of 500 million Yahoo accounts in 2014. The indictment states that the accused used their access to Yahoo and Google email accounts to enrich themselves and to spy on diplomats, journalists and business executives.
