Default Judge says law allows DoS attacks

from http://www.itweek.co.uk/itweek/news/...ws-dos-attacks

The case involved a teenager accused of crashing his ex-employer's email server by bombarding it with millions of messages. But he was cleared after the judge ruled that DoS attacks are not illegal under the CMA. The decision puts firms at greater risk, experts warned, though attacks that use hijacked systems or involve extortion will still break the law.
