Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The Metropolitan Police's Web site has helped capture a man wanted for questioning in connection with the brutal killing of four people from the same family three years ago. Forty-year-old Ibrahim Aderdour was stopped at Amsterdam airport on Christmas day as he tried to leave Holland. Custom officials detained him after seeing his photograph -- and details of the crime -- on Scotland Yard's Web site. According to a spokeswoman at the Met, this is the first time in two years that someone wanted for questioning has been detained directly because of the Web site. Despite this recent success, the police cannot count on PC Internet’s help in every case. A Web appeal for the safe return of three newborn piglets -- stolen from a city farm in London -- appears not to have been quite as fruitful. Reported missing last week, the piglets -- from a breed called 'Kune Kune' worth between £200 and £300 each -- needed to be returned to their mother before the weekend if they were to have any chance of surviving. No details have been forthcoming about the piglets’ well-being. ®
