chicksdaddy writes: Spanish authorities arrested a 35 year-old Dutch man believed responsible for denial of service attacks against Spamhaus, a spam blacklist operation. In a statement on Sunday, the Spanish Ministry of the Interior released a statement saying that National Police agents arrested the man responsible for the attacks in response to a European arrest warrant stemming from an investigation begun by Dutch authorities. The suspect was not named, but was described as a 35 year-old from Alkmaar (Netherlands) who was apprehended while traveling in a van equipped with computer equipment and a range of antennas and used as a mobile office.

The man is believed to be Sven Kamphuis, the owner and manager of Dutch hosting firm Cyberbunker. According to the Spanish Ministry of the Interior, he claimed to be a diplomat at the time of his arrest, claiming the title of Minister of Telecommunications and Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyberbunker.
