Police arrest man suspected of building million-router German botnet
Last year, someone turned a German internet service provider into a million-router botnet. German police think they will soon have the culprit.
The U.K.’s National Crime Agency (NCA) made an arrest on Wednesday in connection with the November 2016 hack on Deutsche Telekom. The agency said it arrested a 29-year-old man at Luton airport, acting on a European Arrest Warrant issued by the public prosecutor’s office in Cologne, Germany.
The German Federal Criminal Police Office (Bundeskriminalamt, or BKA), which led the investigation, said it had worked with British law enforcement officials to arrest the man, a Briton.
