FBI Admits Compromising of Freedom Hosting Tor Servers

The law and lawmakers are sometimes involved in some very dubious activities. It almost makes one think that they serve the criminals they’re supposed to fight more than the decent law-abiding citizens they’re supposed to protect. Take the case of the FBI

An agent from this upholder of the law confessed in an Irish court that for a while the FBI controlled Freedom Hosting which had promoted child pornography. The Tor server it employed for its purposes had long been thought to be in the use of an investigation agency. And the accusations turned out to be right in the end

Eric Marques, the man behind Freedom Hosting faces charges of lending online access to child pornography. He is facing extradition to the United States from Ireland due to his horrendous crimes. But there’s more than meets the eye. Marques after he was caught managed to get back on the Tor server which was in possession of the FBI. And he created a new password thereby completely confounding the law. 

The Tor malware he somehow managed to imbed in the system allowed the data to be relayed to a place in Northern Virginia. And all this occurred under the nose of the FBI. Eric Marques faces up to one hundred years in prison for the child abuse sites he supported. The FBI meanwhile is left holding its head in confusion over what this man has done despite its efforts to stop his illicit activities.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
