#hacking | International police arrest two after WeLeakInfo takedown

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Search engine for leaked passwords shut down

Police have seized WeLeakInfo.com, an online service that turned selling access to data exposed by breaches into a business.

The site offered subscription-based access to billions of compromised user login credentials, essentially offering a search engine for breached personal data including names, email addresses, phone numbers, IP address, and passwords.

A joint law enforcement action led by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA), in collaboration with international law enforcement partners including the FBI and the East Netherland Cyber Crime Unit (Politie), has led to the seizure of the domain and the arrest of two suspects.

A 22-year-old male was arrested in Fintona, Northern Ireland by the country’s police service on suspicion of fraud and serious crime offences before being released on bail, pending further inquiries.

Another man, also 22, was arrested in Vriendin, The Netherlands, by Dutch authorities.

Neither suspect has been named but police allege the duo made £200,000 ($261,000) through the dodgy site they ran together.

The pair became suspects after police traced online payments for hosting and other services linked to the site back to IP addresses used by the two men.

Police also established “links between the purchase of cybercrime tools, such as remote access Trojans (RATs) and cryptors, and weleakinfo.com.”

Robert Ramsden-Board, VP EMEA at Securonix, commented in a press release: “Weleakinfo.com was a useful resource for threat actors.

“Hackers could perform unlimited searches for exposed data for as little as $2 a day.

“Hence, providing them with all the information they would need, such as exposed usernames and passwords, to be able to perform credential stuffing attacks and phishing attacks.”

The FBI took ownership of the WeLeakInfo.com domain name and added a notice stating it was seized.

Prior to the takedown, police allege that the site hosted credentials taken from around 10,000 data breaches. The details were used in subsequent cyber-attacks in an unspecified number of cases.

Although WeLeakInfo.com has been taken out of commission, other similar services exist and may well expand to fill the gap in the market occasioned by a rival’s takedown.

In a blog post, security industry veteran Graham Cluley explains the difference between WeLeakInfo and legitimate services like Troy Hunt’s HaveIBeenPwned. The latter only offers warnings – free of charge – that a person’s email address and associated info has been part of a breach without ever storing or offering access to passwords.

Police arrest 3 young boys after two Saskatoon schools vandalized

Police arrested three young boys after two schools in Saskatoon were vandalized overnight.

It’s the second time this week that police responded to multiple calls of schools getting trashed.

It was just after 1 a.m. CST when officers were called to Pleasant Hill Community School on the 200 block of Avenue S S. They arrived to find someone had smashed in the glass by the main entranceway to get into the school.

They were investigating that scene when a second call came in that a break-and-enter was in progress at King George Community School, about nine blocks away on the 700 block of Avenue K S.

This former Philadelphia cop had an incredibly simple plan to keep kids out of prison. Don’t arrest them.

Kevin Bethel didn’t become a police officer to lock up children. But it was under his watch as deputy police commissioner that Philadelphia’s school to-prison pipeline was in full effect.

Now retired, Bethel is on a mission to keep children out of prison, with a police-led school diversion program that is showing impressive results.

For nearly a decade, Philadelphia’s zero-tolerance policies meant that police had to be called for anything ranging from minor misconduct to possible weapons. Metal detectors at the schools meant that even items safely stowed in backpacks, such as pepper spray carried for a walk to school through a dangerous neighborhood, a box cutter or pair of shears needed for an after-school job or an art project resulted in a call to the police.

Parents, neighbors react to teacher’s aide arrest for exposing genitals to child

Parents and neighbors said they were shocked Tuesday to learn that a teacher’s aide is facing charges for exposing himself to a child with disabilities.

Beloit police, along with Wisconsin Internet Crimes Against Children, arrested 45-year-old Scott Swanson on Monday morning in the parking lot of The Richardson School.

Capt. Dan Molland said officials arrested Swanson before he went to work. He was employed at The Richardson School as a teacher’s aide. Police said Swanson exposed his genitalia to a 17-year-old who has behavioral and mental-health disabilities.

“I feel surprised, shocked, that a person that’s an authority and trusted could pull something like this,” said Valerie Melson, who lives across the street from the school.
