Canadians aimed to help Russian FSB.

Karim Baratov, a 23-year-old man from Canada, has been sentenced to five years in prison following his involvement in hacking Yahoo in 2014. Reuters writes.

In addition, the man is sentenced to pay $ 250,000, over two million dollars.

Must have helped FSB
Baratov was arrested in March last year and was blamed for November, writes the news agency. Two officials in the Russian intelligence organization FSB have also been sought after, but only Baratov has been arrested.

The US Department of Justice claims that the Canadian should have assisted the FSB for payment. When the intelligence organization learned that a target had a non-Yahoo account, they contacted Baratov who got paid to break into at least 80 email accounts, writes Reuters. Several of these were Gmail accounts.

500 million users were affected by the data breach that was completed in 2014. Yahoo did not confirm the attack before the fall of 2016.
