Major Takedown of Site Selling Cyberattacks
April 25, 2018 / Kacy Zurkus
Administrators of the world's largest DDoS-as-a-service website webstresser.org were only yesterday reaping the rewards of their illicit enterprise. Today, they are under arrest thanks to the cooperative effort of international law enforcement agencies. Eruopol reported the success of Operation Power Off, an investigation led by the Dutch police in combination with the UK's National Crime Agency and a dozen other law enforcement agencies from around the world. As of today, the site has been shut down and its infrastructure has been seized.
