Ubisoft sues website alleged to have facilitated DDoS attacks against Rainbow Six Siege servers

Ubisoft has filed a lawsuit against a website that allegedly distributes denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks against its Rainbow Six: Siege servers.

As reported by Polygon (thanks, VG24/7), the website concerned sells tiered plans to clients looking to “test” the robustness of their website security, but a screenshot taken by the Ubisoft of the website reportedly shows the services are abused and lists the servers of “Fortnite, FIFA 20, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 as potential targets”.

The lawsuit – which was filed in Calfornia late last week – lists a number of individual defendants and accuses the site owners of being “well aware of the harm” their services cause, saying the “defendants have gone out of their way to taunt and attempt to embarrass Ubisoft for the damage its services have caused to [Rainbow Six Siege]”.
