Stolen creds site WeLeakInfo busted by multinational cop op for data reselling

Recommended Posts

Two men have been arrested after Britain’s National Crime Agency and its international pals claimed the takedown of breached credentials-reselling website WeLeakInfo.

In a collaboration between British, Northern Irish, German, US and Dutch police agencies WeLeakInfo was taken offline yesterday with two 22-year-olds alleged to be linked to its operation being arrested at the same time.

The NCA began looking closely at the site, which is said to have offered paid access to around 12 billion items of personal data, in August 2019. In a statement the agency alleged that credentials from the site were being used in cyber attacks affecting Britain, Germany and America.

The two arrested men were said, by NCA investigators, to have made £200,000 from running the site. One hailed from Fintona, Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, while the other is from Arnhem in the Netherlands.
