The court heard Mudd created the Titanium Stresser "malware" in 2013, when he was 16 years old, and sold it to cyber criminals across the world.

The programme had 112,000 registered users who were responsible for about 1.7 million "distributed denial of service" attacks on websites, including gaming sites such as RuneScape, Minecraft and Xbox Live.
The court heard there were about 25,000 attacks on RuneScape and the company which owns it spent £6m trying to defend itself.

Good thing he's caught, and even better to hear that Jagex is spending a lot to prevent this. :)
