Update on Recent WoW and Twitch DDOS Attacks

Twitch and World of Warcraft DDoSer Suspect Arrested

World of Warcraft Community Manager informed the WoW forums community that the person believed to be responsible for the DDOS attacks that targeted World of Warcraft Classic servers and Twitch Streamers playing WoW Classic is in custody.

When the DDOS attacks began on September 8, a Twitter user going by UKDrillas live-tweeted his alleged activities, as he targeted specific Twitch streamers. It would be several hours before Twitter acted to take down the account of the alleged DDOSer. There is no word yet on whether or not UKDrillas was actually behind the attacks or otherwise involved.

Depending on where the suspect resides, they could receive hefty penalties in addition to prison time, like that of Austin Thompson, aka DerpTrolling, who received 27 months in prison as well as a $95,000 fine. The maximum penalty for just conspiring to launch cyber attacks is 10 years in prison. In the U.S., cyber attacks are treated as acts of domestic terrorism, which warrant a sentence of 20 years in prison.


A hacker or group of hackers going to UK Drillas on Twitter has been attacking various online media outlets.

Friday, around 5 PM EST, the hacker(s) going by UK Drillas began, what they called on Twitter, an “authenticity test” by allegedly taking down Wikipedia.

UK Drillas moved on to Twitch servers to cycle through the Twitch’s streaming lineup to find summit1g.

Next, UK Drillas would target the game that most of the popular streamers are playing, World of Warcraft Classic.

Blizzard Support is well aware of the attacks and are working on a solution.

Yes folks, there are issues.

And no, I’m not going to give more details.

Being worked on.

Thank you for your patience.

We aren’t sure who UK Drillas is or if they are being paid by an outside entity to cause chaos. Rumors say they’ve located his back in Canada. Someone going by the name of /dev/null on Twitter claims to have identified and located the hacker. But it’s highly probable that UK Drillas is using someone else’s moniker, being that he established his Twitter account only September of this year, likely yesterday for the purpose of announcing his attacks. Another Twitter user, Corey Blankenship also allegedly identified the man behind UK Drillas, who appears to have the same name and location as the person /dev/null identified.

What is a DDOS attack?

A DDOS or a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack happens when a user overloads a targeted website with multiple requests for service to the point where services are slowed or stopped. DDOS attackers generally release thousands of botnets onto their targeted website. Is DDOS illegal? DDOSing is absolutely illegal in most most countries, including the U.S, Canada, and the UK, where UK Drillas is alleged to reside.

As of September 7, 2019, at 5 PM, UK Drillers is still attacking Twitch servers and now returning to attacking WoW Classic servers and announcing his attacks on Twitter. There isn’t much we gamers can do. However, if you are looking for games like World of Warcraft Classic, try these out if you haven’t already.

GameStop Closing 200 Stores By the End of 2019

GameStop has been a staple video game retailer since 1984. But all the nostalgia in the world won’t save GameStop. Or will it?

During their earnings call on Tuesday, September 10, GameStop announced they were would be shutting down between 180 and 200 stores. And that’s only the beginning. They plan to close hundreds more by Spring 2022. Fortune reported that the flailing games retailer has reduced its corporate staff by 14%.

At E3, GameStop Executive Vice President and Chief Customer Officer Frank Hamlin revealed their upcoming strategy: to focus on gaming culture and not necessarily the games itself. “We need to…focus on becoming a cultural center for gaming….If [E3] is the Vatican [of gaming], why aren’t we the local church?”

Once upon a time, GameStop was, in essence, like a local, cultural hub, with midnight games releases, giveways, and gamers just hanging out to talk games. But with game streaming services like Steam Store, Playstation announcing they will no longer allow retailers to sell game codes, and Xbox creating a disc-less console, and players being able to purchase physical copies of games cheaper on Amazon, GameStop is losing its relevancy.

While Hamlin maintains that streaming doesn’t necessarily mean GameStop’s demise, they have struggled for years to keep up with the changing gaming industry. Though their efforts seem too little too late, only time will tell if their strategy to reclaim the hearts of gamers will pay off.

They are banking on next gen consoles still having disc drives as well as ramping up their focus on accessories, toys, collectibles, comic books, retro gaming consoles, and gear from the recently acquired ThinkGeek, a geek culture retail store. And while there are still many consumers out there long for midnight game releases and will never truly abandon brick and mortar stores, the fact is, GameStop is fighting against a growing trend: more and more people are shopping online than in physical stores. And retailers are feeling the sting of less in-store sales on big money holidays like Black Friday. The research is there: consumers prefer shopping online for certain things, including video games. GameStop’s fight to remain seems like they’re trying to make “fetch” happen. Did they learn nothing from Blockbuster Video, Tower Records, and Sam Goody?

GameStop is the largest video game retailer in the world. But they’ve been on a steady decline since 2013. They’ve made a lot of no good, very bad business moves, like Spring Mobile. And let’s be honest: GameStop deals are barely competitive. But does that mean this new strategy under GameStop’s new CEO George Sherman won’t be the “Hail Mary” the dying retailer needs. Do you think their new strategy will be enough to save the empire? Or will GameStop go the way of other failed retail empires that couldn’t keep up with emerging technology and the changing needs and habits of consumers?

NRA Backed Republicans Blame Violent Video Games for Recent Mass Shootings

NRA Backed Republicans Blame Violent Video Games for Recent Mass Shootings

…instead of our obsession with guns and Trump’s “invasion” rhetoric.

There were two domestic terrorist attacks carried out within 24-hours. A 21-year-old white male drove over nine hours to attack a retail store in El Paso, TX that is frequented by both U.S. and Mexican citizens who was fond of retweeting racist rhetoric by Donald Trump.

17- Year Old Instagrammer, Bianca Devins Brutally Murdered with Photos Plastered on Social Media

Was he just a family friend? An obsessed fan? Or both. Either way, this is one of way too many cautionary tales for women and could increase fear of physical retaliation after rejecting someone.

On July 14, 2019, Utica, NY rising Instagram influencer, Bianca Devins attended a concert of Canadian musician Nicole Dollenganger with her friend, 21-year old Brandon Andrew Clark. At the concert, they met up with another person, alleged to be Devins’ boyfriend or someone she was romantically involved with. Direct Messages (DMs) from Discord that were shared with Rolling Stone show Clark being upset with Devins, saying he was “so mad” at her for “holding hands and kissing this other person” during the concert.

Around 6:40 AM, Discord, Instagram, and 4chan users reported beginning to see images of Devins with her throat cut sitting in an SUV. Lt. Brian Coromato of the Utica Police Department told Rolling Stone, that they “received multiple calls at around 7:20 a.m. from concerned 4chan and Discord users who had seen Clark’s posts.” Clark had also made a call to the police and made “incriminating statements.”

When the police arrived to the scene, Devins was already dead and Clark was found with “multiple sharp objects” and “in critical condition” from self-inflicted wounds to his neck.

Lt. Coromato says he believes Devins and Clark were “were boyfriend and girlfriend, whatever kids these days call it.” However, Chels and other members of their Discord server said that they were purely platonic friends and Clark had agreed to give Devins a ride to the concert.

CBSNews reported that Devins and Clark met via Instagram and had “become acquainted with each other’s families.” There are rumors that the two dated, but nothing confirmed. Either way, nothing excuses the brutal murder of a girl or anyone for that matter.


This developing story is yet another commentary on the need to teach boys and young men how to deal with rejection early in life. Along with the photos of the photos of the gruesome murder, Clark, a Bridgeport, NY native, allegedly included the caption, “Sorry fuckers, you’re gonna have to find someone else to orbit.”

It’s 2019 and we live in a society where asking to not be sexually harassed, raped, or abused is met with blame and condemnation for wanting to be respected as human beings! We’re shamed for dressing a certain way, for our professions, for wearing makeup, for saying “NO”. And women are scared for each other, because no matter what we say, there are way too many dudes who think their behavior is justified or simply do not care enough to correct their friend or family member’s behavior before it turns into this story.

We, as a community, as a society, need to do better. Will you help us? Take this survey so that we can more accurately assess the climate in our community. Ladies and gentleman, please be safe. Be careful. Trust your instincts if they are telling you don’t go or don’t do something.


Razer Drops Brazilian Twitch Streamer, Gabi Cattuzzo for Clapping Back at Harasser

And this is a huge problem.

Tuesday, July 25, Razer’s Brazilian branch announced that they will let the contract of Gabi Cattuzzo run out and will not renew it.

Razer Inc. is the leading lifestyle brand for gamers, with a particular focus on influencers in the gaming industry. Gabi Cattuzzo, is a gamer, cosplayer and influencer who streams primarily on Facebook with over 68,000 followers and another 90,000 followers on Twitch. Until recently, she was an influencer for Razer Brazil.

It all started when Cattuzzo tweeted a photo of her riding a mechanical bull. A tweeter who goes by Rhaegar responded, “You can ride on me…” Cattuzzo responded, “There's always going to be a fucking male to talk shit and sexualize a woman even when the woman is making a joke, right? That's why man is trash.” Her male followers and even people not following her were upset with her generalization. One user even went so far as to ask her to remove it because he was offended. And NOT ONE PERSON corrected Rhaegar’s behavior. Cattuzzo has since deleted the tweet, but you can view the conversation here. It’s in Portuguese but Google can translate it for you.

Razer Brasil, issued a statement not only distancing themselves from Cattuzzo, but gaslighting the situation.

We would like to make it clear that Gabi is not a spokesperson for Razer and has never been a brand ambassador,” the tweet read.

She was part of a team of influencers who were called upon to use and publicise the brand's products.

As gamers, we face every type of preconception and stereotype from the outset, and we will continue fighting so that this type of situation doesn’t repeat itself.

The statement concluded by saying the company opposes any kind of “extremism.

Razer literally shamed a young woman for defending herself against sexism by ending her contract. Razer reaffirmed the misogynistic ideal that sexual harassment is okay. Defending yourself from it is not. Cattuzzo has since received death threats and still undertaking mass harassment and is taking a break from social media. Somehow, dudes think THIS is acceptable.

We get it: Razer’s base is primarily male gamers. And unfortunately, that means supporting or even being silent in the instance of sexual harassment is good for business.

It’s 2019 and as women fight for ownership of our own bodies and sexuality and the right to exist without being subjected to sexual harassment, there are way too many men who refuse to let that happen. And there are the corporations and even laws that validate their misogyny, just as Razer did, by making the issue about gamers and not one word about this young woman being sexually harassed. Hell, a pregnant woman was shot in the stomach and then charged for the murder of that baby! Is this 2019 or 1919?

Women are not expected to defend themselves at all. We are told that “It’s just how boys/men are” which says that boys and men are excused as not having control of their behavior. Or “You’re a girl, get used to it. What do you expect?” Or we are told that any “aggressive” response is worse than the harassment itself. “You’re just as bad for responding to harassment the way you did.” Except, the people who are angry and offended aren’t even mentioning the fact that she was publicly sexually harassed! Razer made absolutely no mention of it! Instead of telling women and girls to get used to harassment or excusing sexual harassment, how about teaching boys and men to NOT SEXUALLY HARASS!

Ge’NeL is only a small publication, but if Razer thinks ignoring sexual harassment and punishing someone for defending themselves is cool, then we will be removing all Razer ads and dropping their affiliate program.



Riot Games Acts Fast to Remove Possible Epileptic Seizure Trigger

Riot Games

WARNING POSSIBLE EPILEPTIC TRIGGER - STROBING LIGHTS


A League of Legends player, Apricot Princess, took to the forums a last week to let Riot Games know that the Trial House Finishers - a new animation that had been added a few weeks ago - were causing issues for people with epilepsy. In her post, she writes

However, the new kill/death animations for the house missions–those big strobey house logos that pop up over a champion you kill– are a huge issue for photosensitive epilepsy and cannot be turned off nor the effects turned down. I understand that epileptics are in the minority for those who play the game, but League has brought me a lot of joy these past few years and it's heartbreaking that Riot doesn't take epilepsy seriously when developing and designing new game mechanics.

On the post, one of the game's developers apologized for the problem but noted that they didn’t have the “time or bandwidth” to create a toggle to turn them off. The developer wrote “we would rather ship [the finishers] with no toggle than not ship them because we couldn't do a toggle, but we knew there would be some level of frustration and risk with that. So again, my apologies for making League less enjoyable for you in the meantime.” Since then, Riot Games - possibly due to community backlash - has decided to remove finishers completely for the time being.

Apricot Princess added to her post, saying that she’s submitted multiple support tickets to Riot Games about things that could be changed to make the game safer for her and other photosensitive epileptics. League of Legends has a colorblind mode but has never had a photosensitive mode. “Ultimately, I was told that it has been brought up to devs before and that they, unfortunately, don't care or see it as a priority,” she wrote, but still has hopes that they will add a photosensitive mode in the future and has offered to answer any questions Riot Games might have about what could help.

Riot added to their response: “Because we take photosensitive epilepsy issues extremely seriously, Trials finisher animations have been disabled. When we bring finishers back, we’ll make sure players have the option to turn them off themselves.” The finishers were a reward for completing missions during the Trial House Event. Since removing the finishers, Riot Games has replaced the reward with a loot box, which seems to be a decent trade to the community.

Here’s hoping that Riot listens to the community and adds a photosensitive mode in the future, ideally referencing their epileptic player base to do so. Comments? Suggestions?

Stan Lee's Former Manager Charged With Elder Abuse

Before the death of the amazing Stan Lee, he suffered abuses that seemed to come out of left field after the death of his lovely wife. Now, his former manager is being accused of fostering that abuse.

The LA Times reports that Keya Morgan, 43, is facing federal charges for “theft, embezzlement, forgery or fraud against an elder adult, and false imprisonment of an elder adult.” Morgan is also facing misdemeanor charges for elder abuse.

Morgan worked with Lee for ten years and becoming an intricate part in Lee’s private life in 2016. But in June 2018, Stan Lee’s daughter filed a restraining order against Morgan on behalf of her father, alleging that Morgan was manipulating Stan Lee and kept him away from family and friends. And in August 2018, Stan Lee and his daughter were granted a three-year restraining order that prevented Morgan from contacting Stan Lee or coming within 100 feet of him.

Stan Lee is the beloved co-creator of Marvel Comics’ mightiest heroes and villains. The Lee family’s bizarre tumble into legal battles began after the death of his wife of 70 years, Joan B. Lee, in 2017.

Attorneys for Lee’s estate allege that Keya Morgan took advantage of Lee’s deteriorating health. The details for the restraining order against Morgan mentioned that Morgan was under investigation for allegedly filing a false police report claiming that there were burglars in his house. The investigation concluded that there were no burglars, but a social worker and two detectives visited to conduct a welfare on Stan Lee. The LA Times also reported that when police interviewed Lee, he “acknowledged that Mr. Morgan had helped him, but would frequently forget his name when talking about him.”

Morgan maintains his innocence in the allegations of elder abuse and reached out to entertainment website Showbiz 411 and shared a document alleged written by Lee but definitely signed by Lee from April 2018 that exonerates Morgan, saying, “Keya Morgan has been my most loyal and supportive friend in the last several years.”

Morgan claimed that he was the one who first noticed suspicious financial transactions and began acting on Stan Lee’s behalf after the estate fired their financial advisers of over 20 years after Joan’s death.

Keya Morgan is a wealthy historian, memorabilia collector, producer, writer, director, and entrepreneur from New York. His celebrity friends’ list include Buzz Aldrin, Muhammad Ali, and President (former) Barack Obama.
