And Another Bites the Dust

Santiago Garrido, 26 years-old, decided he would resort to DDoS after he was being banned from the Hispano IRC network. The DDoS generated caused such problems for Spanish ISP’s Wanadoo, ONO, Lleida Net and other ISP’s that 3 million users were left without connection. This equals to one third of all Spanish Internet users.

Yesterday Garrido (nicked “Ronnie” or “Mike25″) heard the sentence for his act; 2 years in jail, and a 1.4 million fine (roughly $1.6 million USD).
