International law enforcement agencies have successfully taken down the notorious cybercrime platform LabHost, which facilitated phishing attacks and stole passwords, bank card details and other sensitive data from unsuspecting victims around the world.

Operation Stargrew, carried out by the Metropolitan Police, the City of London Police, the National Crime Agency (NCA) and Europol, led to the arrest of 37 suspects across the UK. The operation led to the seizure of control of the fake LabHost website, dealing a major blow to cybercrime. Law enforcement contacted more than 25,000 victims in the UK and informed them of the data breach.

According to police estimates, the criminals created more than 40,000 fake websites, from which 480,000 card numbers, 64,000 PIN codes and more than one million passwords were stolen. More than 70,000 citizens of Great Britain were affected, which shows the scale of criminal activity.

The closure of the LabHost platform confirms the effectiveness of international cooperation and the commitment of law enforcement agencies around the world to protect citizens from online fraud, and also emphasizes the importance of continuing to fight cybercrime.
