Two Russian intelligence agents and their two co-conspirators, notorious hackers Alexsey Belan and Karim Baratov, have been indicted by the DOJ on charges stemming from last year's mega data breach at Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO).

Baratov, a Canadian, was arrested on Tuesday. The three others may be in Russia, which doesn't have an extradition treaty with the United States.
