An American court found Russian Yevgeniy Nikulin guilty of hacking about 117 million social network accounts in 2012.
It is reported by Bloomberg.
The Russian was held responsible for one of the largest data leaks in US history when about 117 million login codes were stolen.
He faces up to 10 years in prison for selling stolen data and installing malware on secure computers, as well as five years on charges of conspiracy and computer hacking, and, in addition, a two-year mandatory term for identity theft.

It is worth noting that Nikulin was detained in Prague at the request of Interpol in October 2016. His extradition was demanded by Russia, and he himself sought asylum in the Czech Republic.
In April 2018, Nikulin was extradited to the United States, and later the Czech Constitutional Court declared this decision illegal.
