British police have arrested two men in connection with an internet attack against an online gambling website.
The two Polish men, who have been named by the media as Piotr Smirnow, 31, of Warsaw, and 35-year-old Patryk Surmacki, of Szczecin, were arrested at Heathrow airport on Wednesday on suspicion of threatening a Manchester-based online casino with a DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attack.
It is alleged that the men launched a 36-hour denial-of-service attack against the Club World Casino on August 2 2013, effectively preventing customers from visiting the site as it was too bombarded with traffic.
