Five suspects in large cybercrime investigation Dutch police

Holland - The Dutch police has put a forum (Anon IB) used by hackers offline by seizing the server they used for their purposes. People who frequented this forum were mainly after pictures and videos showing nude young women. The hackers managed to steal these files from the clouds used by their victims to share it amongst themselves on other, more hidden locations on the internet.

Forum blurred

The Police and the Public Prosecutor have been conducting this complex cybercrime investigation for over a year, arresting three suspects during that time. Their computers and mobile phones contained large quantities of personal data and imagery from women. Last Monday the Police seized digital data from a fourth and fifth suspect. So far, this person has not been arrested. More information about this ongoing investigation is available (in Dutch) on www.politie.nl. More information in English will be posted on this website later today.
