The booter or stresser as it is called was used by cybercriminals to disrupt services of Netflix, Amazon, BBC, T-Mobile, EE, T-Mobile, BT, Virgin Media, O2 and used in 2015 to disrupt the systems of NatWest. 

 So far, the suspect has been charged with impairing the operation of computers under the Computer Misuse Act, encouraging or assisting an offence, and money laundering crime proceeds with a US national.

 The West Midlands police said that none of the  DDoS attacks run by Chappell resulted in any loss or theft of customer data. This whole bust-up took the combined efforts of the FBI, Europol's European Cybercrime Center (EC3), British authorities and the Israeli police
