Baker and Insidious Arrested
Today is a day that has been in the works for awhile. In the past, when hooligans have targeted Eternal, it was easier to stop them or to have them arrested, but when things started to go global, it was decidedly more difficult to handle DDOS'ers and hackers in other countries.
Today, we finally have vindication on foreign attackers from the United Kingdom, who have made us the latest target in their skid efforts. News arrived this morning that Baker and Insidious have both been arrested
- Baker at his mother's address - and all of their computers and electronic communication devices - including cell phones - seized by the UK National Cyber Crime Unit, the equivalent of the USA's FBI Cyber Crime division. He has admitted his involvement and the Crown Prosecution Service will be seeking the fullest charges to indict them on, including what we have reported, but also whatever additionally is likely to be found on their computers. I've decided not to attach correspondence with the UK police yet, as it is an ongoing case. More information will be released as appropriate in the future.
As the targets of these trouble makers, we had been exhorted to allowing them to play or else get attacked for some time, but as of this moment, any person known to have attacked us repeatedly has been banned and their accounts stripped. We have a couple of additional people in the USA and one in the Netherlands that we have been working with local police on.
It does not pay to do these activities. It is a crime. You will not get away with it forever. These two criminals have permanently altered the course of their lives.
