Tor Dev's should be suing the us government

#1xcmon3yx2Posted 9/30/2013 3:45:28 AM(edited)
as you are probably all aware, around the end of July. The FBI managed to gain control of a hosting service that provided over 50% of the hosting for tor hidden services. They proceeded to attack users with a javascript exploit that installed maleware to the users computer. While there was indeed some very bad site being hosted, a great majority of legal sites "tormail" where also targeted.

This is example of this corrupt government that feels like they can **** all over everyone's privacy with no consequences. The tor devs should be suing the US government for hacking their software, violating several international computing laws, and effectively destroying their service.

Suing in what court? The US's own court? That sounds unlikely to work out.

It does not matter, "innocent until proven guilty", you do not break into an innocent persons house to find evidence of wrongdoing, that is illegal.

Gee there Mr new user. be careful or you might hurt my feelings. As for "innocence", if they were really that worried about it perhaps they should've reconsidered occupying the same servers as pedos. There's no way in hell the people who operated the services could've not known where they were.
