Ryan Cleary: DDoS Extortionist

Ryan Cleary alias “ViraL”, one of the hackers who conspired to take down 4chan with a DDoS attack, recently threatened to DDoS my blog unless I complied with his demands.

I have not complied with his demands. I do not negotiate with extortionists.

My blog just recovered from a DDoS attack. Ryan Cleary is now a felon twice over.

Are you serious right now? Remove all material on us from your site or it won’t come back up. You can’t “prevent” DDoS, and you certainly can’t pipe 70gbps on the budget your on, so if I were you, I’d comply.

DDoS is a felony. If my blog goes down, you’ll know who did it.
