Karim Baratov, a 22-year-old Canadian national, pleaded guilty to charges related to the FBI's investigation into the Yahoo 2014 data breach.

The US Department of Justice charged four hackers in this investigation in March 2017. Two are well-known cyber-criminals, while two are high-ranking Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) agents....
The one who carried out the actual Yahoo hack is 29-year-old Alexsey Alexseyevich Belan, aka "Magg," a Russian national still at large.
