    The hackers responsible for Battlefield 1's DDoS attacks--as well as many others--have been caught by federal authorities and could face some serious jail time for their cybercrimes.

    What 10 years?! I hope they're carrying out a more severe punishments for people who "swat" other people then.

    It doesn't say DDoS, it says "game hackers may get 10 years in prison" on a forum where half the users regularly hack games.

    10 years being the maximum sentence, which is hardly ever enforced. If they have even a halfwit lawyer, they should get off with maybe 1, 2 years max in prison.

    actually, we are not hacker here, we are modder, saying you hack a console is false, only programmer who find exploit and write code so people play for free are hacker. we, normal people who use those code, are not hacker, we are modder. only hacker can get in jail (yesm smea can get in jail at any time), we modder, are in some juridic void, its not legal, but not illegal either in most country, thats why modchip and flashcart are not intercepted at country frontier

    If you injected FBI into H&S, that is hacking. Same if you've ever injected virtual consoles. Just because you used a tool doesn't make it not hacking, all hackers use the right tool for the job.
