His name was not published by the police, as he is still a minor. But the authorities claim that last November, a DDoS attack was launched against the Osaka Education Administration server.
The teenager told the police that he wanted to throw only his school website and did not know that other school websites would be affected.
Seeing that the school's website did not load on his phone, and happy with his success, the child started more attacks later. Most of them lasted about an hour.
“I hate how teachers talk to us and we can't express ourselves. So I thought the attack would remind them of their own helplessness. It was good to see that they have problems. I did it several times," the teenager told police.
After the investigation, the police seized his computer and filed a case. So the teenager now faces up to three years in prison along with one fine which reaches 500.000 yen ($ 4.500).
