Video game maker Ubisoft has filed a lawsuit against the operators of a DDoS-for-hire website because of harm the service allegedly caused the company.

Ubisoft publishes popular games like Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege.

DDoS attacks from booter and stresser service have allegedly caused gaming servers to lag or even crash, according to the lawsuit.

Gaming site Polygon has more:

"The defendants, which allegedly operate a website called SNG.ONE, sell subscriptions for up to $299.85 for 'lifetime' access to the server, according to the lawsuit; a monthly subscription costs around $30. A screenshot from the complaint showed Fortnite, FIFA 20, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4 as potential targets, too.

Ubisoft says the site owners 'are well aware of the harm' their services have caused the company. 'Indeed, Defendants have gone out of their way to taunt and attempt to embarrass Ubisoft for the damage its services have caused to [Rainbow Six Siege],' Ubisoft lawyers write."
