16-Year-Old Arrested for 'Biggest Cyberattack Ever'

The massive sustained attack last spring on Spamhaus, the Dutch anti-spam group, has netted several arrests. In reports leaked this week, one of them being a 16 year old from London who was arrested along with the main suspect back in April. The attacks actually slowed down the Internet in Europe.

The teenager, whose name is unknown at this point, was arrested by British police in April, but details of his arrest were just leaked to British press on Thursday. He was arrested at the same time as the main suspect of the attack, Sven Olaf Kamphuis.
