Dutch police nab suspected 'bot herders'
Dutch police have arrested three individuals suspected of hacking into more than 100,000 computers worldwide and using the hijacked systems in online crimes.
The three individuals, whose names were not disclosed, allegedly commandeered the computers using malicious code known as a Trojan horse, Dutch prosecutors said in a statement Friday. The investigation is ongoing and more arrests are expected, prosecutors said.
The main suspect is a 19-year-old male; the other two suspects are 22 and 27. Police confiscated computers, documents, cash and a sports car in searches of the suspects' residences. Investigators also took control of a bank account, prosecutors said.
