Eric J. Rosol, a Wisconsin resident, was charged with being part of the hacker group Anonymous’ attack on the Kansas-based company, Kochind.com, on Feb. 28, 2011 using a popular DDoS tool, which was found on his computer. He was sentenced to two years probation and a hefty fine for participating in an distributed denial-of-service attack. Rosol, however, says he was part of the attack for one minute. He pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of accessing a protected computer, and was sentenced to two years of federal probation and ordered to pay $183,000.
