    If I was to DDOS a server/website, could I be arrested? I tested out a new DOS tool on my own server, and it works. I was just wonder if I used it on another site if i'd get arrested.

    Yes, if you are caught and the issue was pushed, you would be arrested.

    DOS stands for Denial Of Service, generally software or action that preys on a critical flaw of a another given software, causing it to no longer function for given amount of time.

    In that case, would be unwise to use it...don't so anything illegal with you're PC or wtv, that way you know never to get caught...trust me it can give you a load of unwanted Stress to know that you might get a cop on you're ass at any given moment.

    Most local police don't handle computer related criminal activity directly, however usually always called in to assist. Depending on the type of crime you are looking at getting the U.S. Marshals, FBI, and the Secret Service.

    The two BIG ones you will be dealing with is the FBI, and the Secret Service. (Click the links to there computer crime related pages.) I do know the U.S. Marshals are used in auxiliary and often the local police are used in apprehension. Who pays you a visit depends on what type of computer crime and where it was committed. With a DOS attack you can expect the FBI btw. Things like credit card theft we are talking the Secret Service.
