Udemy Instructor Receives One Month Suspension for Organizing DDoS Attack
Udemy has handed out a one-month suspension to one of their instructors, Clifton Krahenbill aka Prof. K, for encouraging his 34,000 students to organize a DDoS attack against an illegal torrent site that had pirated one of his hacking courses.
Since 1998 Professor K worked in technology as a Microsoft Support Technician, Technology support specialist, Microsoft Certified Trainer and IT auditor and he comes to Udemy with a Master of Science in Information Technology from Capella University (2007) and Master of Science in Cyber Security from UMUC (2015).
In this time Clifton Krahenbill aka Prof. K taught six courses on Udemy named "Server 2016 Exam Prep: 70-740 -Installation and Storage" "Ethical Hacking - Capture the Flag Walkthroughs"
"I accept this one-month suspension and feel I am falling on my sword. I was contacted Udemy for a response but did not get a comment." Said Clifton Krahenbill aka Prof. K.
Udemy has a legal and anti-pirating department and aggressively goes after sites that pirate courses off of Udemy using legal means. Udemy does not encourage or condone any rogue behavior by their instructors supporting Udemy students to carry out an illegal DDoS attack regardless of the reason.
