Jesus H. Christ people. Hack a few servers in third world countries with shiatty IT support and poor US relations and run your DDOS attacks from there. Or spoof your MAC addy, ride around with a laptop until you get an unsecured WIFI signal and attack from there. Or do any one of a million things but run the script from your own damn bot.

I have no sympathy for script kiddies that wanna be 1337 hackers and can't even be bothered to do more than run LOIC.

I want a low orbit ion cannon.

I downloaded it thinking it was a game. it wasnt. I wanna blow stuff up on the ground safely from L2 and wave occasionally at the ISS when I do so.

This seems like a very impressive waste of resources, even by law enforcement standards. While Chinese hackers are anally violating government and business servers at will, we have Deputy Dipshiat picking up idiot 14 year olds and wage slaves who frequent /b/ and are dumb enough to get caught being moronic online.

Even though these are just script kiddies, they're still technically breaking the law. When you do that, don't be surprised when law enforcement takes issue.

There are no bigger fish. These are just a bunch of schmucks who all get together on message boards and say hai guise lets ddos visa lulz! That's absolutely all there is to it. There is no grand kingpin pulling strings, just a bunch of kids with nothing better to do who in hindsight probably should have used 8 proxies.

I doubt there *are* bigger fish, though. These people are almost certainly script kiddies who happened to win the federal PMITA prison lotto. And, to the extent that the attacks were organized, the "organizers" are likely similarly inconsequential people who simply posted and reposted calls to arms on /b/. It's decentralized in a way that has a lot of similarity to filesharing, actually.

They did manage several successful DDOS attacks, so they aren't absurdly small potatoes. Amazon loses about $30K for every minute they are down.

They shouldn't prosecute the hell out the script kiddies, but a wake-up call was probably in order. There are consequences to your actions.

So, a DDoS attack is a serious enough crime to have the FBI but down your door and take all of your computers and electronic equipment away?

Are we living in a police state or something?

This is what we're using the FBI for?

I'd rather the FBI be investigating the massive fraud being perpetrated on Wall St, not busting a bunch of bored kids.

Meh, Anonymous has already released information on how to prevent this kind of thing from happening.

I liked the fallout from the LOIC attack on the banks etc.

I got a bunch of money because a certain clients firewalls couldn't handle it and I had to go and do some out of hours work installing an IDS for them.

On an unrelated note, I love the Weeners on the article page:

So a bunch of idiots do something illegal, and think they're not in the wrong because THEY consider it to be civil disobedience? Then the asshat in the article was crying because he got his computers taken? Man, those FBI are jerks. How dare they enforce the laws that they warn people not to break.

That's the equivalent of giving shiat to a cop chasing after someone who just robbed a liquor store that he should've been chasing after mafia bosses instead. Either ways, you don't know how the FBI works, and you will fail miserably trying to gather sympathy for 14 year old channers.

Well, there are two reasons. One, attacking the Co$ has no economic repercussions. Attacking banks does. And the DDoS is related to the Wikileaks issue, and while the government does not have a leg to attack Wikileaks directly, it can go after Wikileaks's supporters.

Great, now tell me two things:

A) Why Can't the FBI do better than finding people using the LOIC? I mean, you notice how these were private residences, too, and not, say, university dorms and such, where idiots like these 40 we're probably saved by open wireless access, computer labs, and 100s of individual users, per campus? This is clearly the path of least resistance, and it's not like folks don't already know about the party vans coming around. Stupid ass waste of resources. Tell me when the FBI can find people doing something at least 1 tier up, like seeding and uploading the LOIC. (which you could probably make a dent in if you were to go through, cause there's probably only a few 100 responsible for that instead of thousands.

B) Why isn't Anon interested in doing something truly useful and amazing to freedom of information like keeping egyptian and (middle eastern countries in general) wired up? I'm sure there are ways that suddenly become easy if you have a massive network of people willing to do minute amounts of work. That would be a cool show of something new instead of the same old ddos. ...Oh wait, script kiddies, and no real interest in being more than script kiddies. Right.

The guys who investigate a DDOS are not the same guys who would investigate bank fraud.

And if the $30,0000 per minute figure is accurate (although I question it) this was a huge crime and the equivalent to a massive theft.

Not terribly surprising. The three-letter spooky people have experience with DDOS attacks going back to the 1980's phone attack on Jerry Fallwell.

I even empathize with the causes about half the time, but it's still a jerk move that skirts the boundaries of legality.

There isn't a tier up. Someone's looking for the LOIC? Someone else posts a link to a server like rapidshare (based overseas) and now the next guy has it and can post it if anyone needs it. There's no reason for tiers in file sharing.

I suspect there's going to be a whole lot of "Let this be a lesson to you, and don't let me catch you doing it again" going on here. After all, interrogating some pathetic 14-year-old script kiddie until he wets himself repeatedly should probably get the point across.
