Remarkable development in investigation into Maastricht University cyberattack

The Executive Board of Maastricht University was recently informed that the investigation into the 2019 cyberattack has been successful. After a long and complex process, the Netherlands Public Prosecution Service was able to seize crypto currencies worth approximately €500,000 which may be made available to UM. This is still less than the damages incurred by the university, but it is a nice sum to be used to support students in need.
