    A teen hacker who was arrested earlier this week was identified by his email provider after deciding to DDoS the firm. George Duke-Cohan, 19, pleaded guilty at Luton Magistrates Court this week to three counts of making hoax bomb threats. Also known by the online monikers “7R1D3N7,” “DoubleParallax” and “optcz1,” Duke-Cohan was a vocal member of the infamy-seeking hacking collective known as Apophis Squad, which decided to DDoS Swiss-based secure email provider ProtonMail.
