The FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice have announced the seizure of three domains used to sell stolen data. These domains were also used to provide DDoS attack services.
The three domains include WeLeakInfo.to, ipstress.in and ovh-booter.com. The domains were seized following a joint law enforcement operation in coordination with the National Police Corps of the Netherlands and the Belgian Federal Police.
WeLeakInfo.to sold subscriptions that allow its customers to search a database containing information stolen in more than 10,000 data breaches. Ipstress.in and ovh-booter.com provide clients with booter or stressor attack services for DDoS attacks.
The raid also led to the arrest of a suspect, the seizure of server infrastructure and searches at several locations.
“Today, the FBI and the Department stopped two distressingly common threats: websites trafficking in stolen personal information, and sites which attack and disrupt legitimate internet businesses. Cyber crime often crosses national borders. Using strong working relationships with our international law enforcement partners, we will address crimes like these that threaten privacy, security, and commerce around the globe,” said U.S. Attorney Matthew M. Graves.
