information Ubisoft sues website owners for selling DDoS services



Mega-big online gaming company Ubisoft, maker of mega-hit games including Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, Just Dance and Tom Clancy’s RainbowSix: Siege (R6S), is suing four operators of the DDoS-for-hire sites that have been launched against its RainbowSix servers.

These guys aren’t just launching attacks that kick all players on a targeted server out of a game, or degrade the game performance down to sludge, Ubisoft alleges. They also allegedly went so far as to throw up a bogus domain seizure notice on one of their sites, claiming that the domain had been seized by “Microsoft Inc. and Ubisoft Entertainment” pursuant to a fictional “Operation(D)DoS OFF”, according to the complaint (posted courtesy of Polygon) that Ubisoft filed on Thursday in the US District Court of Northern California.
