Spain Arrests Cybercrime Ring Responsible for Stealing Data of 4 Million People
Spanish police have arrested 34 people suspected of being members of a cybercrime ring that stole the personal data of over 4 million people.
Law enforcement in the country conducted 16 targeted searches in Madrid, Malaga, Huelva, Alicante, and Murcia and arrested 34 members of the crime group.
The police raids led to the confiscating of firearms and hand weapons, four high-end cars, 80,000 euros in cash, and computers hosting a database with information on four million people.
The Spanish police explain that the arrested individuals are linked to email and SMS phishing that impersonated delivery firms and electricity suppliers.
