A California federal judge ruled that three people who sold illegal DDoS software to Rainbow Six Siege has to pay more than $ 150,000 to Ubisoft, one of the largest game companies in the world.
For starters, a DDoS attack is the attempt to shut down an internet service by generating a lot of spam which in turn overwhelms the targeted server, causing the unsuspected victim to receive unplayable amounts of in-game lag. There are two common types of DDoS attacks popular in Rainbow Six Siege: a DDoS targeting Ubisoft servers or a DDoS targeting another player.

This type of attack will disable the entire server, which includes both parties and parties. On the other hand, a DDOS attack on a specific player is less common, but still quite popular. When this happens, a single target will have network issues, leaving other players unaffected. Still, even that could have outrageous reverberations on the game as a whole.
Ubisoft claimed that the defendants were involved at some level in an illegal market “for services allowing players to launch DoS and DDoS attacks in competitive multiplayer games like R6S”.

Once the dust finally settled, the court ruled in favor of Ubisoft on July 9. As a result of the ruling, the defendants were ordered to shut down DDoS services and the websites they operated and to transfer control of any relevant domain names to the publisher.
On top of that, the three men were fined $ 153,094.04 to pay Ubisoft, mostly to cover attorney fees, with affiliates also being barred from disrupting Rainbow Six Siege players and have been ordered not to undermine the “integrity, availability or condition of R6S servers and networks”.
