According to court papers, Kaye was hired in 2015 to attack Lonestar, Liberia's leading mobile phone and internet company, by an individual working for Cellcom, its competitor...There is no suggestion that Cellcom knew what the employee was doing - but the individual offered Kaye up to $10,000 (7,800) a month to use his skills to do as much as possible to destroy Lonestar's service and reputation...In November 2016, working secretly out of Cyprus and controlling the botnet via his mobile phone, Kaye ordered it to overwhelm Lonestar's systems.

Seems like he wanted to make a name for himself - frightening though!

Cheers
