Wapack Labs is researching a group of hackers who sell their DDoS-as-a-service. The team promotes their service on Russian hacker forums, and their website explains they use all types of DDoS and fake googlebots. They demonstrate their capabilities, via video, by boasting about the impact of their attack against major web sites. They target both web sites and mobile devices. Ironically, they also offer DDoS protection.
Wapack Labs has cataloged and extensively reported on DDoS attackers in the past. An archive of related reporting can be found in the Red Sky Alliance portal.
