U.S Department of Justice is expected to file charges against the four hackers who are suspected of leading one the huge Yahoo breaches. It has been reported that one of the suspects resides in Canada while three reside in Russia

The data leak caused mass panic and anxiety among millions of individuals, especially because the Yahoo rescinded the option to delete accounts.
