An Indian-American student has pleaded guilty to launching a massive cyberattack on a US university’s computer network by creating a giant botnet that paralysed the internet, officials have said. Paras Jha, 21, of New Jersey along with two others Josiah White, 20, from Pennsylvania and Dalton Norman, 21, from Louisiana also pleaded guilty to creating and operating two botnets last year, which targeted ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) devices, the Department of Justice announced Tuesday.
