One author of the original Mirai botnet received this Friday a new sentence for launching distributed denial-of-service attacks prior to the infamous assaults two years ago.

Paras Jha, one of the three people involved in the creation of Mirai malware, was involved in DDoS attacks long before the botnet shook the internet in 2016. For these crimes, he has to serve six months of home incarceration and pay $8.6 million.
