Belan has a reputation "for hacking USA e-commerce companies".
Dokuchaev, whose hacker alias was "Forb", was arrested in December in Moscow, according to the news agency Interfax, on charges of state treason for passing information to the CIA. While all face at least 10 years for conspiracy to commit computer fraud and abuse, Belan, Dokuchaev, and Sushchin could receive harsher prison terms if convicted. Belan has been one of the FBI's most wanted cyber criminals. He was born in Soviet Latvia but holds a Russian passport. Belan escaped arrest in Europe by fleeing to Russian Federation before he could extradited, the report says. At one point, the discount it sought was as large as $925 million, but Verizon recently said it would buy the properties for $4.48 billion, $350 million less than the original price.
Belan is understood to have used his access to Yahoo to search for and steal financial information such as gift card and credit card numbers from users' accounts.
