Downey, 24, has pleaded guilty for operating a botnet and computer fraud. Asking his reasons behind performing DDoS attacks U.S. District Judge Nancy G. Edmunds heard his reply: “I was doing it because I could, more than anything,” Downey replied. “It was a dumb thing to do.”

With a plea agreement he can face up to 24 months in prison and pay a $40,000 fine. A total of $21,000 may have to be paid to cover costs resulted from his attacks.

Downey will hear his sentence on October 10th.

I hope this doesn’t mean that the Rizon network is going to go down, assuming this is true. I’d imagine that being quite inconvenient for a large number of people.
