A website linked to more than four million cyber attacks across the globe, including those targeting some of the UK’s biggest banks, has been shut down, with arrests in Croatia, Serbia, Canada and Scotland. The action follows an investigation led by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Dutch National Police, in collaboration with international law enforcement partners. Authorities in the Netherlands, Serbia, Croatia and Canada, with support from Police Scotland and Europol, targeted six members of the crime group behind the Webstresser website, while Dutch police, with assistance from Germany and the US, seized servers and took down the website.
