Accused Yahoo Hacker Karim Baratov Denied Bail
Karim Baratov, the Canadian charged in connection with a massive Russian hacking scheme, has been denied bail after Federal Crown Heather Graham said there was “an overwhelming case for detention” of the Ancaster man.
Baratov, 22, has been charged by a U.S. federal court with aggravated identity theft and conspiring to commit fraud, in connection with the breach of about 500 million Yahoo accounts and 32 million accounts from other email providers.
American authorities have their sights set on extraditing Baratov to the U.S. for trial.
