Dutch police have arrested a 22-year-old, who allegedly offered to sell 12 million passwords and passcode access, stolen, online.
Arnhem city police said in a statement yesterday that the data can be downloaded for an amount of money. The police have not revealed the quality of the data, or the people affected, and said investigations are still ongoing.
Netherlands investigators cooperated closely with the German, American and British authorities on this case.
After receiving a signal from colleagues in Britain, internet crime experts in the Netherlands were able to track down the suspect in the east of the country.
Police said that the authorities confiscated specialized devices during the search of two apartments. Using these devices, the data is available through the "Wei Lake Info" website.
As part of the investigations, another 22-year-old was also arrested in Northern Ireland.
Meanwhile, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) blocked the site.
