Participate in DDOS Attack for One Minute, Pay $183,000 Fine?
"The attack managed to take the website down for about 15 minutes and according to estimates, the loss sustained by Koch Industries was less than $5,000, a good deal less than the fine Rosol is facing. The reason behind the huge fine? Apparently this is to cover the expenses that Koch Industries had to pay to a consulting firm to better secure its servers. The fine is currently being appealed and while performing a DDoS is illegal, a fine of $183,000 seems excessive compared to the loss of $5,000:" http://www.ubergizmo.com/2013/12/man-slapped-with-183000-fine-for-participating-in-a-ddos-attack-for-1-minute/
