The National Crime Agency is targeting 400 British webstresser users…
British police are conducting a number of live operations against users of the Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) marketplace webstresser.org, according to an Interpol statement today, with 400 UK users targeted.
The activity comes as police forces across the continent continue to mine a trove of information about the website’s 151,000 registered users, obtained when the website was brought down in an international effort last April.
webstresser.org was the world’s DDoS services marketplace, helping launch over four million attacks from just €15 per month.
Four alleged administrators of the service were arrested in Canada, Croatia, Serbia and the UK in April 2018, whilst the site was shut down and its infrastructure seized in Germany and the US in a coordinated action.
The database clearly continues to inform continent-wide warrants.
