FBI Arrests USC Student in DDoS Sweep

The FBI announced the arrest of Sean Sharma, a graduate student at the University of Southern California, for his suspected role in a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack against a San Francisco chat service company.  The arrest came as part of an operation aimed at users of “DDoS for hire” services. The sweep, which was coordinated from The Hague in the Netherlands by Europol’s European Cyber Crime Centre (EC3), yielded nearly three dozen arrests in 13 countries.
