Police arrest phishing software developer

The police have arrested a 24-year-old man from Arnhem who is suspected of having developed software for phishing panels.

With phishing panels, websites can be set up with which criminals try to get people to click on a fake (payment) link. That link leads to a fake banking site where the criminals can see the data that the victim enters. With the stolen data, they can then log into the victim’s account and completely empty it.

The developer of phishing panels is seen as the most important link in the phishing process. “No phishing without a developer,” the police said in a press release. The suspect will be brought before the examining magistrate in Rotterdam on Friday.

A 15-year-old boy was also arrested on Tuesday in Loenen aan de Vecht. He is suspected of selling phishing panels. He has been released pending further investigation. A third suspect, an 18-year-old boy from Hoogeveen, was searched yesterday.
