Russian spies indicted in Yahoo hack

Hosted by

For the first time, the US Justice Department is charging Russian officials with cybercrimes. Two agents of the FSB — which succeeded the KGB — are among four foreigners accused of hacking Yahoo in 2014, stealing 500 million user accounts.

Shane Harris, senior national security correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, says the charges send a message to Russia that we know what it's doing.
