Ubisoft takes legal action against those who perpetuated Rainbow Six Siege DDoS attacks

Ubisoft has filed a lawsuit against a website, and multiple people around the globe, which offers a DDoS service to users. The company claims the site was used to interfere with the Rainbow Six Siege servers.

According to court documents obtained by Polygon, Ubisoft filed suit against the owners of the website SNG.ONE over its users creating DDoS attacks in Rainbow Six Siege.

The website sells a lifetime subscription to its server and also offers a monthly plan. A screenshot taken by the Ubisoft of the website shows "Fortnite, FIFA 20, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 as potential targets."

Multiple people are named in the lawsuit which was filed on January 16 in California.

In September, Ubisoft noticed an uptick in DDoS and DoS attacks against the R6S servers. It identified the worst offenders and issued permanent bans.

The company said at the time it would also take legal action against the worst offenders, and started issuing cease and desists to websites and people hosting DDoS services.
