Submission + - Chinese Hackers Feud - Outage Insues (darkreading.com)

KingPin27 writes: An article taken from Dark Reading states:

Four individuals have been arrested in China after an alleged denial-of-service "war" between underground gaming services spun out of control, according to news reports.

According to a report by Xinhua News Agency, China's Ministry of Public Security said Tuesday that the suspects were detained on May 29 following police investigations in the Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Guangdong provinces. The suspects were not named, although the surnames of two — Xu and Wang — were released.

The ministry told the news agency that on May 19, the suspects allegedly launched a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack against the servers of DNSPod, a Chinese DNS provider and domain registrar.
