U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced on Wednesday that the operation was launched in 2009, and targeted an online forum called Dreamboard. The bust has resulted in more than 50 arrests of those involved in the network, which reached 5 continents.

The forum, Dreamboard, was a members-only, password protected site which was created to distribute and promote pedophilia and the sexual exploitation of minors, specifically children under the age of 12.

The arrests and indictments were made in May and were sealed until Wednesday in an effort to conceal the operation.
