    Porn Site Extortionist Caught

    20-year-old Pavel Vladislav was arrested in the Israeli town of Be'er Sheva. Authorities believe he is the porn site extortionist who operated under the name Deepsy.

    He would demand cash from porn sites and then initiate DoS (denial-of-service) attacks against them if they failed to comply.

    Here is the article on Wired.com: Sex Sites Sick of Getting Screwed

    Was he ever successfull in getting any money? I read the article, I didnt see if he got any money......I not an expert in the LAW and I dont know how it works in that jurisdiction, but technically if he didnt get any money, then its only attempted fraud/extortion???

    I don't know if he got any money- so it may be only attempted extortion (which is still against the law- at least here). However, it seems that whether he got money or not he did initiate denial-of-service attacks which successfully knocked the porn sites offline for a period of time so he broke the law there as well.

    Lostboy,

    Hi mate! that is the big problem with the net..............the laws are so different. Here, in England, it would be "demanding money with menaces" that would carry a maximum of 14 years............even if nothing changed hands. Not sure on Israeli law, but that is what will decide?, their law, not ours..........We also have a crime called "extortion" which gets about the same in prison terms, but is more related to blackmail type scams...............maybe it would come under that. Once again....no money required?

    As for my porn sites...............If you me$$ with my update or technical $upport $ites ever again..............you won't even get to court (Uncle Bill) You guys should never have had more than 640k of RAM.............oh....I think that I said that once before

    Just a little humour for the older technical types amongst us?


    Cheers,


    Johnno

    Either way I do beleive he should be punished for his actions. All I'm saying is with a good lawyer it would be difficult to make extortion charges stick if he didnt get any money (in American law anyway). Although a good prosecutor might could, He would have an edge in that he launched denial-of-service attacks to the sites that didnt cooperate. In other words he had full intention on getting the money and would have taken it, had it been given.

    But everything I'm saying is probably irrelevant(bullshit) anyway because I'm sure the law over there is different. Its just the topics of technology/law/politics always intrest me and I love to speak my mind on them...... Going to eat now...peace

    Nihil: That's "nothing" in latin....... right?

    1. You are some kind of legal B/Eagle...... right?
    2. You are some kind of smart@$$..... right?

    As an aside.... I appreciate your legal knowledge and your humour....

    .....and you do ok with computers too.....<s>

    Now.... the question is..... Is taking down a site that is illegal in many countries.... _illegal_?

    My position: I don't know.... I enjoy freedom of speech etc. But then there is a line, (kiddie porn etc.), that probably shouldn't be crossed..... But that is reliant on the culture in which I was raised...... Hard question when you take it worldwide/internetwide......

    That's both the strength and the weakness of the internet........

    posted my Tiger Shark "But then there is a line, (kiddie porn etc.), that probably shouldn't be crossed..... "

    Like hell it shouldnt be crossed. children should not be submited to these acts, wether thay chose to be or not thay should not be. how would you like it if your children where involved in child porn?? you wouldnt. I no if my nece or nefues ever got involved in anything related to that I would kill the person whom got them involved with in it.
    Its abuse

    Nightfalls Girl & Tiger Shark... thanks for the response, although it is not my thread. I find it marvellous that we have three persons here with a similar attitude!!! I am not a leagle eagle...I like eagles, and would not so insult them.

    I also "really" like kiddie pornographers...........Sykes-Fairbairn killing knives, electrical soldering irons.....oxy-acetelene blow torches, and other stuff. Unfortunately, the law does NOT permit me my preferred hobby....at least not in "civilised countries"??

    So the Kiddie Pornographers are protected (for the time being)...you thought I was leagle...a bald eagle sir! (and madam) Don't know any Australian ones I have helped prosecute a few pervs, as an expert witness, almost CSI here ( )

    All I can really say is, I loved your reaction to porn and stuff.....OK we are adults...look at what you like....but children?

    Hell folks..they are our FUTURE????????????????

    Sorry for the rant


    Sorry Tiger Shark...I did not answer your question...the kiddie porn bit distracted me...........give me the ISP NOT HERE OF COURSE!!! and you will find out what I and a lot of decent people think. This may be just a simple arrest & prosecution.................I do not take the law into my own hands (usually)
