LinkedIn said on Wednesday that police in the Czech Republic recently arrested a man allegedly responsible for the 2012 hack on the business social network that resulted in over 117 million members email and password combinations posted online.

Acting on behalf of the FBI and Interpol, authorities arrested 29-year-old Russian citizen, Yevgeniy N, on October 5 in Prague after Interpol issued a Red Notice against him - indicating he is wanted for extradition.

He is also suspected of attacks on other US websites.
