Booters (Black)List and Ecosystem Analysis

Sharing the most extensive list of Booter Websites!

Booters are Websites that publicly offer Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks as a paid service. Accordingly to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Booters usage are considered ‘crime if they are used against a Website without the owner’s permission’. Our intention to generate/share this list is to facilitade the investigation of the entire market/ecosystem. NOTE that the following list includes offline Booters (for historical purposes). For only ONLINE booters, please clone our GitHub repository and re-run the 6th and 7th steps.
