Alexsey Belan, known as a sneaky Russian hacker that U.S. authorities have been after for some time, was indicted in 2013. However, even after being arrested in Europe, he escaped to Russia. His charges actually made him a more desirable candidate in the country.
Belan is one of a handful of hackers living outside the US responsible for the Yahoo hack. Handlers kept Belan and other safe and they repaid their handlers by hacking into Yahoo and gaining access to recovery email accounts, personal information and plenty of data.
