According to Belgian media, the attackers allegedly gained access to the police system via a brute-force attack, similar to what happened at the Hof van Twente municipality, although this has not yet been confirmed by the Zwijndrecht police. Speaking to VRT NWS, he argues that the biggest victims of the data breach are not the police, but innocent citizens photographed via ANPR cameras. The victims of the police data breach in Zwijndrecht, Belgium, would be wise to replace their license plate numbers, passports and other official documents, advises privacy lawyer Matthias Dobbelaere-Welvaert.
