The U.S. Department of Justice announced Wednesday that four defendants, including two officers of Russian security services, are being charged in connection with a massive Yahoo cybersecurity breach that occurred in 2014.

Yahoo disclosed in September that a copy of certain user account information was stolen in late 2014 in an incident they estimated involved at least 500 million accounts.

The company also said in December of last year that it believed an unauthorized third party stole data associated with more than a billion accounts in a separate incident in August 2013.
