BLACK CREEK, WI (WTAQ) - A Black Creek man has been charged with taking part in a cyber attack on Kansas-based Koch Industries carried out by the computer hacker group Anonymous.

37 year old Eric J. Rosol faces federal charges of damaging a computer and conspiracy to damage computer.

Anonymous allegedly asked conspirators in February 2011 to launch what it called a Low Orbit Ion Cannon that sent a high volume of repeated requests to a Koch website.

The company’s website crashed under the onslaught.

Rosol is also accused of sending a code which damaged Koch’s computers.
