Well-Known Hola Website Being Used as Center of Botnet for Hire
Hola is one of the most renowned online services for seeing banned videos and television shows from other nations and it has turned its patrons into a botnet without their consent. The software, accessible as a plug-in in Google's Chrome on desktops and mobiles devices and it had been applauded before for giving an easy-to-use and free service. However, it appears that the enterprise has been secretly selling "idle resources" (i.e. their bandwidth) of users through a separate Luminati brand enabling anyone to buy traffic in lump sum and redirect it to a target website as a denial-of-service attack. Theverge.com reported on 29th May, 2015 stating that essentially users of Hola have been ignorant mercenaries in a botnet-for-hire.
