Red face DMCA Takedown Blackhat Attack

Misusing DMCA Is A Deadly DoS Attack


This is crazy and I personally have been victimized by a black hat hacker flooding false takedown notices to one of my online reputation DIY tutorial sites. I am posting this to spread awareness of this misuse of the DMCA and I hope nobody has to encounter this annoyance like I did.

What I had to do is move the domain in question to another host and have a proxy server to prevent the individual attempting the takedowns.

The penalty for filing a false DMCA is up to $250 000 (I think).
