For all of you that remember this thread (http://cboard.cprogramming.com/showthread.php?t=89182&highlight=estonia), well it turns out that the "cyber-attack" (i.e. DoS attacks) against Estonia were launched by a single Russian student. Crazy.

I think you misunderstood the article. He's the (only?) one that was caught and fined (appearantly found guilty in bringing down the server of the party of the Estonian prime minister - possibly in cooperation with others?).

Apparently it is not a very big news in Estonian newspapers but it is mentioned that others haven't been tracked down (which would be quite impossible if the attacks came from Russia).
