“By taking a website like this offline, you are denying citizens access to their personal data and important government information. We take this very high, especially now that the corona crisis is causing additional uncertainty and a great need for information by many people. We want to protect people and companies and make it increasingly difficult for cybercriminals to carry out a DDoS attack,” said Jeroen Niessen of the cybercrime team of the Central Netherlands Police.

In cooperation between, Interpol, FBI, Europol and other police forces they were managed to shut down online services which allowed criminals to hire services to conduct DDoS attacks against there targets.
