Re: vDOS?
vDOS was just the name they gave their service (obviously used in DoS/DDoS).

If it is not legit it would return form the first customer and then no way for them to find next one.

How?
"... the duo reportedly made over $600,000. ..."

I am wondering how they made that much money, who paid them it the good question to ask I would say.

That makes sense, there would not be any reason for them to bring down the organization's network in that case.

It depends on what type of stresser or booter are they I assume.

vDOS?
What is vDOS? I have not heard it, I am assuming it is not DDOS.

Re: Stresser and Booter Services
That is what their defense is claiming, not that it is what actually took place.  Second, there would need to be a contractual agreement between the pen testers and the organization and I doubt money hungry 18 year olds would bother.  Lastly, even if some were legit services it only takes a few instances to get them locked up for years.

Stresser and Booter Services
Why would stresser or booter services be illegal if the customer had in fact requested them?
