Lizard Stresser also proposed it with an attack-as-a-service model for sale.
News of the week is that six British teenagers linked to the Lizard Squad team have been identified and arrested by the National Crime Agency. The NCA hasn’t provided the name of the teenagers, the information shared by law enforcement is the age and the residence of the suspects.
Other two teenagers arrested early this year are a 17-year-old from Cardiff and a 17-year-old from Northolt, north-west London.
The investigators clarified that none of the teenagers are believed to be a member of the Lizard Squad, neither was involved in the attacks that hit Sony and Microsoft last year.
“By paying a comparatively small fee, tools like Lizard Stresser can cripple businesses financially and deprive people of access to important information and public services.
One of our key priorities is to engage with those on the fringes of cyber criminality, to help them understand the consequences of cyber crime and how they can channel their abilities into productive and lucrative legitimate careers.” explained Tony Adams, senior head of investigations for the NCA.
