A Russian man has been arrested on suspicion of hacking into LinkedIn in 2012. The man was picked up during a raid on a hotel in Prague with the assistance of the FBI.
He was detained for 12 hours after receiving the first "operational information", said a statement from the Czech police.
The man apparently collapsed after the arrest and was given first aid by police before being taken to hospital.
A municipal court in Prague ruled that the man should remain in custody, and his extradition to the US will now be decided by the judicial authorities.
The above is taken from a Google Translate version of the official statement.
LinkedIn was hacked in 2012, but it was only recently that the details about the incident came to light. For example, the top six plundered passwords reads like a list of the worst passwords you could ever imagine.
This is not unique to LinkedIn. The same thing happened to Myspace showing that the social network's users were also mooncalves.
Myspace was very miffed and blamed the breach on the same Russian who was accused of breaching LinkedIn, a person called 'Peace'.
"We believe the data breach is attributed to Russian cyber hacker ‘Peace'. This same individual is responsible for other recent criminal attacks such as those on LinkedIn and Tumblr, and has claimed on the paid hacker search engine LeakedSource that the data is from a past breach," said Myspace in June 2016.
"This is an ongoing investigation, and we will share more information as it becomes available."
The suspected hacker arrested in Prague has not been named.
