Accused Yahoo Hacker May Comply with US Extradition

A Canadian hacker accused of collaborating with Russian cybercriminals in the 2014 Yahoo breach, may waive his right to fight US extradition.

Canadian hacker Karim Baratov, accused of working with Russian intelligence agents in the 2014 Yahoo breach, may deny the right to fight a US extradition request, Reuters reports, citing the cybercriminal's lawyer.

Baratov is one of four people in custody for the breach, which compromised data of about 500 million Yahoo accounts. In March 2017, the DoJ charged him for working with Russian FSB officers to break into Yahoo systems and steal information from user accounts. Agents used this stolen information to access accounts from Yahoo, Google, additional webmail services, the email accounts of US and Russian government officers, International Monetary Fund, and companies in the US, Russia, and Switzerland.

Others currently being held for their participation in the Yahoo breach include Russian intelligence agents Dmitry Aleksandrovich Dokuchaev and Igor Anatolyevich Sushchin, as well as Russian national Alexsey Alexseyevich Belan.

Judges denied Baratov's bail on the grounds he is a flight risk. He is speaking with the FBI and US prosecutors, and plans to share his final decision at a July 7 hearing.
