International Law Enforcement Operation Power Off Shuts Down DDoS Services!

Europol announced that an international law enforcement campaign called Operation Power Off has shut down approximately fifty of the world’s most extensive booter services that allow users to launch crippling distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. Law enforcement agencies in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Poland, and Germany are cracking down on these attacks that can cripple the Internet.

In the five years of our existence, FinTelegram has been the target of DDoS attacks dozens of times. In this regard, we are grateful that law enforcement agencies are finally taking action against them.

The seized services were the most popular DDoS booster services on the market, ranking high in search engines. One such service that was shut down was used for over 30 million attacks. As part of this action, seven administrators have been arrested in the US and the UK, and further activities against the users of these illegal services are planned.

International police cooperation was central to the success of this operation, as the administrators, users, critical infrastructure, and victims were scattered around the world. Europol’s European Cybercrime Center coordinated European activities through its Joint Cybercrime Action Taskforce (J-CAT).

This international action follows previous editions of Operation Power Off, which targeted administrators and users of the DDoS marketplace
