One new article link has been added to our Related News page. Wired published an article titled If You Used This Secure Webmail Site, the FBI Has Your Inbox.

While investigating a hosting company known for sheltering child porn last year the FBI incidentally seized the entire e-mail database of a popular anonymous webmail service called TorMail.

Now the FBI is tapping that vast trove of e-mail in unrelated investigations.

The bureau’s data windfall, seized from a company called Freedom Hosting, surfaced in court papers last week when prosecutors indicted a Florida man for allegedly selling counterfeit credit cards online. The filings show the FBI built its case in part by executing a search warrant on a Gmail account used by the counterfeiters, where they found that orders for forged cards were being sent to a TorMail e-mail account: “platplus@tormail.net.”

One new article link has been added to our Related News page. Ars Technica published an article titled “The hidden side of your soul”: How the FBI uses the Web as a child porn honeypot.

The e-mail had not arrived in Cafferty’s inbox by accident. Back in 2006, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had opened a major investigation into a string of child porn websites. As part of that work, ICE learned that the sites used PayPal to receive money and disguised the nature of the purchases by using odd subject identifiers. A website called Sick Child Room 2005, for instance, used as its PayPal subject identifier the phrase “SickCR Package v.5.06 Build 3638″—which makes it sound like a software purchase. Instead, the site served up sections with names like “Door 1,” “Door 5,” and “Medic’s Corner.” Behind the doors waited 150 videos and 20,000 child porn images.
