Dutch authorities say more arrests related to the Bredolab botnet may 
occur as investigators continue to examine the business arrangements 
behind the cybercrime operation.

One arrest was made on Tuesday by Armenian police of a 27-year-old man 
accused of being the mastermind behind Bredolab, which included as many 
as 29 million compromised computers worldwide. The man, who was not 
identified, was nabbed after returning from Moscow to Armenia's capital, 
Yerevan. Security experts say the man rented out time on his botnet to 
other cybercrime players.

"We are also investigating the customers of the Armenian suspect to see 
if we can identify some other cybercriminals," said Wim De Bruin, 
spokesman for the Public Prosecution Service in Rotterdam.

Dutch officials want to prosecute the man, who claims to have both 
Russian and Armenian citizenship, De Bruin said. Several international 
treaties make it possible for the man to be prosecuted in the 
Netherlands, and Dutch officials are waiting for a decision by the 
Armenian government.
