A Russian man thought to be connected to a series of denial-of-service attacks against Amazon in 2008 has been arrested in Cyprus.

The US Attorney's Office said Dmitry Olegovich Zubakha, 25, from Moscow, Russia, is also suspected of running DDoS attacks against Priceline.com and eBay.

He stands accused of aggravated identity theft in an unrelated scam involving credit card theft.

Zubakha allegedly conspired with an associate to use botnets of compromised computers to launch two denial of service attacks against Amazon.com in June 2008.

After a series of similar attacks against Priceline.com, his alleged accomplice then offered his services to the firm as a security consultant, says Washington.

The US is seeking to extradite Zubakha from Cyprus.
