The FBI arrested a Chinese national accused of creating malware used to hack the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), leading to one of the largest data breaches to target the U.S. government.

The breach exposed the personal information of more than 21 million current and former federal government employees.

Reuters reports Yu Pingan, 36, was arrested Monday at Los Angeles International Airport and was in the U.S. to attend a conference.

Yu is accused of providing a rare program, Sakula, to two unnamed men, knowing the pair intended to carry out cyberattacks.

Authorities said Sakula was used in the 2014 and 2015 hacks of the OPM.
