Trend Micro Takes Down Notorious Phishing Operation by Working with INTERPOL

Trend Micro have a long-standing history of working with Law enforcement around the world to help take down organised criminals. This is just one example of many where they have been successful in closing down and disrupting organised crime. Well done and thank you Trend Micro and Interpol.

What is the significance of this takedown?

16Shop specialises in the sales of phishing kits that other cybercriminals can purchase to mount phishing attacks on a large scale, ultimately facilitating the theft of credentials and payment details from users of popular services such as Apple, PayPal, American Express, Amazon, and Cash App, among others.

It is estimated that around 70,000 users across 43 countries have been compromised thanks to 16Shop. So it is good news globally that this has been a successful campaign.
