Canadians throw the book at MafiaBoy hacker
I was a teenage DDoSser
Mafiaboy, the teenage Canadian hacker, was slapped with 64 new charges, when he walked into a Montreal court yesterday.
The 16-year-old boy, from Quebec, denied "mischief" charges relating to a fusillade of DDoS attacks in February against big hitter Web sites such as Yahoo! and eBay.
Mafiaboy was charged in April with two mischief charges relating to a DdOS attack on CNN.com, also in February. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police say his computer skills are "far from extraordinary".
