To be honest, I'm surprised something like this didn't happen back when Jagex implemented a bunch of controversial anti-RWT updates several years ago.

His actions are actually totally the same as the unions in Belgium, the railway unions go on strike for every small thing (like not being able to take their 50+ day holiday during the summer months, or an administration building that got moved 350 meters and thus they have to walk "too much", and so on) and lay down all the work. Not a single train rides those days, yet the railways are nationalised, so every Belgian pays tax money for it. Needless to say, as a commuting student, I've missed a lot of courses, and even exams. 

 

So yeah, I detest such people heavily...

Old news, but amusing how that guy completely fulfills the negative stereotype of a hacker >_>

 

Lives with mom? Check.

Has Aspergers? Check.

Has a neck beard? Check.

Out of shape? Check.

If I remember correctly, it did. Back when Jagex implemented the trade restrictions (and before rwt'ers figured a way around it), i'm pretty sure they started ddos'ing the servers for a week or so.

That's strange; I don't remember anyone talking about DDoS attacks or experiencing any disruption. It's possible that some people did try but didn't have enough firepower to affect the servers.

Or more than likely weren't on during most of the attacks.

 

They've been happening around 6pm-1am eastern time.. 10pm-5am uk time, and most of the uk worlds weren't effected by this. One of my friends, due to his schedule, never noticed anything going wrong :P

Still, I find it kind of odd that Jagex never mentioned anything about those attacks. It might be because the company didn't want to give those people too much attention unless things really got out of hand.

But then again, DDoS attacks weren't that sophisticated back then. I think the biggest DDoS attacks that happened in 2007 were only about 40 Gbps or so, whereas today's attacks sometimes reach up to 400 Gbps.

I believe it means all their personal info was posted publicly (as embarrassment) but I could be mistaken.

I am still skeptical on the arrest until I hear it from somewhere other than the people responsible for the attacks. I certainly hope it is true. There are very few people I'd wish jail/prison time on, but these [wagon] need to be made an example of.

 

Servers have been fine for about 24 hours now too.

Yeah, they have been doxed, saw the document yesterday, apparently after someone posted it on their twitter, they ceased to attack that day.

That's about right. "Doxxing" means posting someone's personal information or account info online for all to see; their personal "documents", or "docs", which sounds like "dox", hence "doxxing." Posting someone's address, real name, login info for social media accounts or other websites, family information, where their kids go to school... that all would fall into the category of doxxing.

Often this info is posted so that others can use that info - spam them with mail or prank phone calls, leave threatening notes for their kids at school, log into their online accounts and mess with stuff, etc.

It's an incredibly immoral thing to do, and I wish it upon no one, not even these folks. I do hope they get arrested and charged appropriately, though.

Obtained quest cape and base 92 before obtaining any 99s! Currently finishing out my 99s with the (long-distant) goal of comp cape.

Sigh, so we're all anonymous hackers and serial killers now? Thanks for continuing the stereotypes.

you know Aspergers is an autism spectrum disorder? Even then some autism specialists disagree.

I think their point was just that one particular person happened to match the stereotypes, not meaning to draw any conclusions from it :/.
