    On 13 Oct 2014 the Dutch "National Cyber Security Centre" (NSCS) published that they got info from "Hold Security" about 1.3 million email addresses (extension .nl) being "seized", and about 5600 websites (extension .nl) that may be vulnerable.

    Info in Dutch at the official NCSC site:

    Discussion at Dutch site Tweakers (in Dutch):

    Note:
    At that Dutch site Tweakers there is some discussion about "Hold Security". I am giving this info just "as is".

    PS:
    This seems to be part of broader info that "Hold Security" made public in August 2014. Do we have a thread about that?

    Edited to add:
    Yes, that was the older thread. Somehow I did seem to remember that we had discussed "Hold Security" already.
