A European arrest warrant has been issued against the suspect.

An Interpol notice will also be issued against the suspect, who is a Finnish citizen and about 25 years of age.

Well, the Finns have just announced that the suspect has been apprehended in France, where he has been locked up while his extradition to Finland is being processed.

According to Krebs, the suspect was convicted of "Orchestrating more than 50,000 cybercrimes", but got away with a suspended sentence and a small fine, having been under 18 at the time of that criminal activity.
