Court : DoS Attack Okay In UK
Get DoSing while the DoSing's good !
One would think some form or other of harassment would cover it, but clearly computer crime laws need to be updated.
A judge has ruled that denial of service attacks are not illegal under the UK's outdated Computer Misuse Act.
A teenager charged with launching a denial of service (DoS) attack against his former employer escaped punishment when the judge threw out the charge after his defence successfully argued that DoS attacks were not covered by the parts of the act he was charged under.
