AMSTERDAM, Jan. 17 (DPA / EP) –
The Dutch Police have arrested a 22-year-old man accused of stealing 12,000 million passwords and usernames, of unspecified nature and origin, with the intention of selling them online.
The arrest came after a four-way international operation between the Netherlands, Germany, the United States and the United Kingdom.
The young man was arrested in a raid in two apartments in the east of the country, according to the Arnhem Police, where security forces seized professional equipment with which the defendant dumped the data, downloadable upon payment.
Within the framework of these investigations, a 22-year-old has also been arrested in Northern Ireland.
