Spanish Law Enforcement Arrests Cyberattack Suspect

Spanish law-enforcement officials have arrested a man allegedly connected to one of the largest Internet attacks ever launched last month, which targeted a spam-fighting site. The officials didn’t release the identity of the suspect and blurred his face in arrest photos on Spain’s Interior Ministry website. However, observers say he is a Dutch citizen associated with distributed denial-of-service attacks against Spamhaus. He was reportedly arrested at the request of the Dutch police and faces extradition to the Netherlands. (PC Mag)(The New York Times)(Gobierno de España Ministerio del Interior)
