Hamilton man accused of being a contract hacker for Russian spies

Hamilton man accused of being a contract hacker for Russian spies – Karim Baratov, a dual national of Kazakhstan and Canada, is accused of being a hacker-for-hire contracted by two members of the Russian intelligence agency FSB, according to a release from the U.S. Department of Justice. Baratov and the three other men – two Russian spies and a hacker on the FBI’s most wanted cyber criminals list – are facing charges of criminal espionage, computer hacking and conspiracy-related offences after being indicted by a grand jury in northern California at the end of February.

Baratov was arrested Tuesday morning by Toronto Police at his home in Ancaster and handed over to the RCMP, according to police spokesperson Mark Pugash.
