Submission + - Former Internet Vigilante Gets Two Years For DDoS (ibtimes.com)

RedEaredSlider writes: A computer programmer who once volunteered for Perverted Justice, the producers of "To Catch a Predator," was sentenced Friday to two years in prison for launching a botnet that attacked the organization's web site.

In September, Bruce Raisley, 48, of Kansas City, Mo., was convicted by the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey of violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. He had created a virus that spread to about 100,000 computers and launched a number of DDoS attacks in 2007 and 2008.
