The hacker allegedly responsible for the 2012 hack on LinkedIn has been arrested in the Czech Republic.
The Russian man, 29, whose name was not released, is wanted by the FBI to face charges in connection with hacking targets in the US. A police statement said he was arrested in the country's capital, Prague, after Interpol issued a red notice earlier this month for the suspect's arrest.
LinkedIn said in a statement, via Reuters, that the business social network has been "actively involved with the FBI's case to pursue those responsible" for the attack, which led to the theft of over 100 million accounts.
"We are thankful for the hard work and dedication of the FBI in its efforts to locate and capture the parties believed to be responsible for this criminal activity," the company said.
He later claimed as many as 1.1. billion accounts associated with Yahoo. Months later, the company announced it was hit by "state sponsored" actors, which led to the theft of over 500 million accounts.
Peace, who would only speak over encrypted chat, couldn't be reached on Wednesday.
