Gwapo, DDoS King and Satisfied Cloudflare Customer

From a news story by SC magazine.

A hacker is selling a reportedly booming distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack service and has taken to YouTube to pull new clients.

The service was first launched in January on Hack Forums and has so far recruited several large enterprises who have paid to have rival organisations attacked, the operator Gwapo told SC Magazine.

His own site,, was protected by CloudFlare, an anti-DDoS provider which formerly protected LulzSec's website from a barrage of cyber attacks.
