Zooming in on k3u; he is suspected of being the man behind the DDoS attacks

Who is this k3u guy?

k3u has been confirmed to have claimed all responsibility for the recent DDoS attacks. An anonymous source has also submitted material and links that shine some more light on who this guy might be. Nerd Buster has not been able to establish contact with k3u directly to get an official statement.

Earlier we posted some information about k3u, read up on it in our article titled "ESEA servers crash, matches are ruined, and not even the ESEA website is spared!"

The new information that we have received proves the following.

  • k3u is signed up on ESEA as Michael Hung
  • k3u is using his confirmed (and VAC banned) Steam ID for his ESEA account
  • k3u writes his ESEA handle "ShN" with the same capitalization that he does for his old alias "SkN" as displayed on his proof

The following ESEA accounts are also suspected of being connected to him in one way or another.

These may be his alternate accounts and/or accounts of his associates. We have reason to believe that k3u is not working alone on the DDoS attacks.
