League of Legends hacker made more than $1,000 a day with stolen goods and griefing

People’s user names and monikers fascinate me. Take Shane Duffy for example. He’s the hacker allegedly responsible for taking 24.5 million account details from League of Legends in 2011, selling stolen legacy skins for up to $800 each, leaking the details of League of Legends: Supremacy and creating a website allowing LoL players to punish their opposing team by issuing disconnects and DDoS attacks. His nomme de guerre? Jason.

Duffy explained the details of his nefarious adventures with Riot Games in an interview with The Daily Dot, going into surprisingly frank detail about the methods he and his group used to gain control of the account details of League of Legends players and Riot Games staff, and how he used it to make a good deal of money.

Duffy was making more than $1,000 a day when he took up his DDoS and disconnect site – all while still on bail for his previous hacking offenses against Riot Games. Police even seized around $110,000 worth of Bitcoins when they nabbed him that second time. And yet he lives in Kingaroy, Queensland. Duffy’s next court case will take place on July 24th, at the Maryborough Magistrates Court. Check out the interview for more information about Duffy’s actions, it’s a… weird read. Keep in mind that Duffy himself was the source, and therefore not necessarily entirely trustworthy – Riot Games’ Head of Security Ron Williams has already posted on Reddit explaining some mistakes.

What a retard…

 

Perfect name :)

 

haha I’m guessing the Maryborough court doesn’t get to see many of these cases…..

 

Court should be lenient, there’s not much to do in Kingaroy.
