Forensic Update

Reflections on information management within the legal and regulatory arena

Today’s #GoodGuysPrevail Update…

Posted by Johnny Lee on June 8, 2022

The U.S. Department of Justice announced yesterday that it has shut down (i.e., seized and taken control of the domains governing) several websites serving as both #DDoS attacks and as indexed search engines for breached personal information.

In the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announcement, the WeLeakInfo[.]to website was specifically referenced. For those who are unaware, this site contained roughly 7 billion indexed records of personal information illegally obtained from over 10,000 #databreaches. This is a 𝐁𝐈𝐆 𝐃𝐄𝐀𝐋.

Kudos to all involved: The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the U.S. Department of Justice, the National Police Corps of the Netherlands, and the Federal Police of Belgium.
