UK authorities have charged an eighteen-year-old with running a DDoS booter service that was used to launch DDoS attacks on legitimate businesses across the world.
According to authorities, the teenager’s name is Jack Chappell, 18, of Stockport, a small town southeast of Manchester, UK.
Investigators say Chappell created malware that he installed on devices around the world. He used this malware to create a DDoS botnet to which he then granted access to paying customers.
