56 Suspected Cybercriminals arrested in UK

What’s the most effective way to discourage cyber crime across UK? There’s no definitive answer, but the latest tactic seems to be co-ordinating and publicising a concentrated blast of arrests.

56 suspected hackers have been arrested by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) as part of what British police are calling “strike week” against cybercriminals.

In 26 separate operations across the country, people were arrested in connection with a variety of offences related to distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, internet fraud, phishing attacks, the theft of intellectual property, and malware.

Those arrested include a 22-year-old man, suspected of involvement in a hack by “D3DDs Company” that saw over 400,000 email addresses and passwords stolen from Yahoo in 2012.

Separately, a 23-year-old man from Sutton Coldfield suspected of hacking into the US Department of Defence last June, and stealing data from the Enhanced Mobile Satellite Services global communications system. In that attack, the contact information of approximately 800 people – including name, title, email addresses and phone numbers – was stolen, as well as details of around 34,400 devices.

The following video shows the arrest, on 3 March 2015, of a 22-year-old man suspected of developing and distributing malware.

The suspected malware developer is arrested by members of the NCA at his home in Aldbourne, Marlborough, in the early hours of the morning. During the video you can see law-enforcement agency officers search the premises for evidence, look inside what appears to be a safe (from where CD ROMs are removed), before they seize computing equipment for forensic analysis and take the suspect into custody.
