    [Discussion] DDoS Attacks is Illegal and is Punishable by Law?

    I hate DoS/DDoS attacks, I find them pure cowardice and I've solved many of them against my Network in the past few years so I'm gonna try to give you a hand.

    The most simple way is to use Wireshark (google it, install it and enable it) and then save the logs with the IP (if it's one person/DoS) or IP's (if it's a botnet or several individuals/DDoS) that are attacking you, once you have those logs, google 'whois IP' and track down the IP address to find out the ISP, you should find an email that says abuse@something.com, contact that email with the Wireshark logs.
    You can also call that ISP directly and tell them what is happening and they will warn the user upon breaking their contractual terms by using their internet services for criminal purposes, if the user persists with this behavior then his internet will be terminated and his own ISP might take legal action against him.

    You can also contact the company that is hosting your VPS and tell them what is happening so they can contact whoever is attacking you. They will probably suggest you some DDoS mitigation software that's highly expensive so don't bother going there, there are already several bypasses for most anti-DDoS software. For example, I use hostkey and they charge 100€ for DDoS protection...No thanks.

    On a last resort, you can just get the Wireshark logs and make a criminal charge since denial of service is a crime punishable by law, and nowadays, everyone is traceable and with the FBI's current international cooperation protocols you can simply drop your information with valid proof on this address - Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) | File a Complaint
    That's an official FBI website, do not joke with them or you will be target of legal responsibility!

    If you press a criminal charge you will have to use your real information, do not worry about whatever content you host on your VPS either, if they are, in this case, MAIET's copyrighted files, the FBI and your local/national authorities will only investigate the information that you provide them. Only the copyright holders (MAIET) can take legal action against whatever you have on your VPS, and so far I haven't seen MAIET getting anywhere with their lawsuits and/or cease and desist letters.

    Also, if you choose to take legal action I will warn you now that you will have to wait months due to the massive proliferation of cyber crimes, but in the end, it will be worth waiting. Ignorant individuals might mock you and say nothing will happen and that the authorities do not care, but they do care, I've "been there, done that", and you'll get the last laugh if you're a good guy, trust me. But if you're using your VPS to attack other servers then just ignore everything that I've said because everything will turn against you.

    If you need anymore assistance feel free to contact me through private messages.

    Regards.
    NOTE: Anyone feel free to correct me, I don't know very well how DoS/DDoS/Botnets work, only how to take action against them.

    This wont be 100% protected, but it helps.

    Re: DDOS attacks is illeable by law ??? post your concerns and idea.. xD

    99.99% of attacks go unpunished the best way to resolve is to contact the host master of the IP. Most isps should follow up although they'll go unpunished from my experience. If it's coming from a server then they should help.

    Either that you are not. Smart or you are acting not smart all stolen and copied files from the original content without having permission whatsoever is illegal.

    Now I may ask.you. Is this copied or stolen content. And If so the stolen then you rather not report that person to the cops because you can be double sued for stealing content without permission which is copyright overriding.

    Denial of service or what ever can be fought either that you block his ip or download a ddos firewall it will always work

    Re: DDoS Attacks is Illegal and is Punishable by Law?

    At its most basic level, a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack overwhelms the target system with data, such that the response from the target system is either slowed or stopped altogether. In order to create the necessary amount of traffic, a network of zombie or bot computers is most often used.

    Zombies or botnets are computers that have been compromised by attackers, generally through the use of Trojans, allowing these compromised systems to be remotely controlled. Collectively, these systems are manipulated to create the high traffic flow necessary to create a DDoS attack.

    Meaning to say, You can't reach the real ddos attacker's ip.

    DDoS attackers use VPN's so its impossible to trace them.

    the only way to get rid of DDoS attack is to have a FIREWALL.(Paid FIREWALL.. not a FREE FIREWALL)

    you can use free firewall like COMODO and just set it to automatically BLOCKS BAD PACKETS

    DoS attack is inevitable but can prevent it.
