Black Creek man faces charges in cyber attack

by

WICHITA, KS (WTAQ) - A Fox Valley man is charged in federal court with helping cause computer problems for Koch Industries.

37-year-old Eric Rosol of Black Creek is scheduled to make his first appearance before a judge Wednesday in Wichita Kansas, where Koch is based.

He’s charged with damaging a computer, and conspiring to damage computers.

According to a federal indictment, a hacker group called “Anonymous” asked co-conspirators in 2011 to start a campaign to send a large volume of repeated requests to Koch’s Web site – and it crashed as a result.

Rosol is also accused of sending a code that damaged a Koch computer.
