THE HAGUE, May 30 — Authorities arrested four people and took down or disrupted more than 100 servers in a major international anti-malware operation, Europol announced today.

Europol called it “the largest ever operation against botnets, which play a major role in the deployment of ransomware”, adding that it involved arrests in Armenia and Ukraine, as well 16 police searches in four different countries.

In addition to the four arrests, eight fugitive suspects linked to the case will be added to Europe’s Most Wanted list.

“The actions focused on disrupting criminal services through arresting High Value Targets, taking down the criminal infrastructures and freezing illegal proceeds. This approach had a global impact on the dropper ecosystem,” Europol said, referring to a type of software used to insert malware into a target system.
