Police nab WoW Classic DDOS suspect who tanked the game earlier this month

You rack up a lot of XP debt in prison


World of Warcraft players — especially those in WoW Classic — should still remember the highly annoying DDoS attacks that hit the game on the weekend of September 7th. The good news is that police have apparently caught the suspect who kept bringing servers down and degrading gameplay performance.

“Immediately after the distributed denial of service attacks against our game service began, the Blizzard Security Team worked around the clock with local and international law enforcement agencies to track down the source of the DDoS,” Blizzard said. “It is our understanding that, within a few days, authorities were able to successfully identify and arrest a suspect.”

McGruff the Crime Dog says that “being an internet jerk and criminal doesn’t pay!” And then he went back to leveling his Troll Shaman while saving up for his first mount.
