DDoS Software Creator In Prison


Recommended Posts




Adam Mudd, who created and then sold a DDOS attack program when he was just 16, has been imprisoned for two years.


Mudd’s program, named ‘Titanium Stresser’, has been used to carry out more than 1.7 million attacks on websites, services and games including Minecraft, RuneScape, Xbox Live, Microsoft and TeamSpeak, reports the Guardian. RuneScape suffered 25,000 attacks, and its owners spent £6 million (about $7.7 million) trying to defend it. Though he carried out many attacks personally, the court heard there were over 112,000 registered users of his program, who had attacked about 666,000 IP addresses.
