Two Israeli teenagers, Yarden “applej4ck” Bidani and Itay “p1st” Huri, have been arrested in Israel for allegedly running the world's largest DDoS-for-Hire operation through the darkweb.
From investigative reporter Brian Krebs:
Two young Israeli men alleged by this author to have co-founded vDOS — until recently the largest and most profitable cyber attack-for-hire service online — were arrested and formally indicted this week in Israel on conspiracy and hacking charges.
On Tuesday, Israeli prosecutors announced they had formally arrested and charged two 19-year-olds with conspiring to commit a felony, prohibited activities, tampering with or disrupting a computer, and storing or disseminating false information. A statement from a spokesman for the Israeli state attorney's office said prosecutors couldn't name the accused because their alleged crimes were committed while they were minors.Earlier this year another Israeli teenager, Michael Kadar, was arrested and charged for calling in hundreds of bomb threats to Jewish centers in America and throughout the world. Police said he had a bitcoin wallet worth over a million shekels.
Earlier this week, the FBI accused Kadar of running a similar operation involving the selling of threats on the darkweb.
From the Democrat and Chronicle:
The American-Israeli teen accused of bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers across the country — and a suspect in the threats that led to two evacuations of the Brighton-based JCC — may have sold his services over the Internet, according to unsealed court papers.It'll be quite interesting to see who that suspect is.
