FBI Seizes 15 Websites Offering Distributed Denial-of-Service Attacks

The FBI has seized the domains of 15 high-profile distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) websites after a coordinated effort by law enforcement and several tech companies. Several seizure warrants granted by a California federal judge went into effect, removing several of these “booter” or “stresser” sites off the Internet “as part of coordinated law enforcement action taken against illegal DDoS-for-hire services.”
