Prosecuting DDoS Attacks?

dptalia writes “We all have heard of major DDoS attacks taking down countries, companies, and organizations. But how many of them are ever prosecuted? And how many prosecutions are even successful? I’ve done some research and it appears the answer is very few (Well duh!). And those that are successfully prosecuted tend to have teenagers as the instigators. Does this mean DDoS is a fairly safe crime to conduct? Are the repercussions nonexistent? Does anyone have some knowledge an insight into this that I don’t have? How would you go about prosecuting a DDoS attacker? What’s your experience with getting the responsible parties to justice?”
