On 28 March, Krebs on security reported that the NCA has been busy setting up phony DDoS-for-hire websites that seek to collect information on users, remind them that launching DDoS attacks is illegal, and generally increase the level of paranoia for people looking to hire such services.  The websites, which have so far been accessed by several thousand people, have been created to look like they offer the tools and services that enable cyber criminals to execute these attacks.  Instead, users based in the UK will be contacted by the NCA or police and warned about engaging in cybercrime, and information relating to those based overseas is being passed to international law enforcement.
