Hacker put behind bars for blackmailing game operator

    2018-February-9  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A MAN who attacked servers of three online games and blackmailed the game operator was sentenced to eight months in prison in Shenzhen, according to sznews.com.

The defendant, surnamed Feng, colluded with other hackers to attack servers of three online games operated by a Shenzhen-based Internet company in July last year. As users couldn’t log onto the games, Feng and his accomplices tried to blackmail the company into paying them 17,000 yuan (US$2,706) per month.

After the company turned down their request, Feng and his accomplices continued attacking the company’s servers, which deterred users from logging onto the games.

Feng said he learnt how to make DDoS attacks from a man in 2012. A DDoS attack is an attempt to make an online service unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources.

Feng had been making money by attacking servers for others since 2012. He was paid 20 yuan per DDoS attack, making over 300 yuan per day.

Feng was detained by police in Heilongjiang on Aug. 8 last year. He was sentenced to eight months in prison and fined 1,000 yuan by a court in Shenzhen, according to sznews.com.

According to the court, Feng was given a light sentence because he attempted blackmailing the game operator but failed, and he made a confession after he was detained.
