24-year-old Jacob Allen Wilkens of Postville, Iowa, has been sentenced to 24 months’ probation for participating in the attack launched by Anonymous against Angel Soft, a subsidiary of Koch Industries. He has also been ordered to pay $110,932.71 (€80,919.64) in restitution. Wilkens has admitted launching distribute denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks against the website of bathroom tissue company Angel Soft in February and March 2011. The web server that hosts the website is located in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Koch Industries said the attack had caused losses of several hundred thousand dollars. The Iowa man is the third to be sentenced. Back in December 2013, 38-year-old Eric J. Rosol was sentenced to two years’ probation. Earlier this month, 22-year-old Christopher Michael Sudlik of St. Louis, Missouri, was sentenced to three years’ probation and 60 hours of community service.
