Submission + - After attack on Spamhaus almost brings web to its knees, shadowy figure emerges (nytimes.com)

RougeFemme writes: Sven Olaf Kamphius, self-described "Internet freedome fighter", is reportedly at the center of the investigation into this week's alleged cyber-attack against Spamhaus, a group that fights Internet spam. Mr. Kamphius became incensed when Spamhaus blacklisted two companies that he runs, including Cyberbunker, a company that, earlier this week, claimed be under attack from Dutch swat teams. Though he initially solicited support for a DDoS against Spamhaus, he now disavows any direct role in the cyberattack, which threatened to slow some web traffic to a crawl.
