Крутые ребята...

Американское ФБР, проводя операцию по изъятию серверов, используемых для незаконного вымогания денег с помощью так называемой "scareware", заодно забрала и несколько десятков серверов, имевших несчастье оказаться по соседству и не имевших ни малейшего отношения к операции:

The raid happened at 1:15 a.m. at a hosting facility in Reston, Va., used by DigitalOne, which is based in Switzerland, the company said. The F.B.I. did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the raid.

In an e-mail to one of its clients on Tuesday afternoon, DigitalOne’s chief executive, Sergej Ostroumow, said: “This problem is caused by the F.B.I., not our company. In the night F.B.I. has taken 3 enclosures with equipment plugged into them, possibly including your server — we cannot check it.”

Mr. Ostroumow said that the F.B.I. was only interested in one of the company’s clients but had taken servers used by “tens of clients.”

В числе пострадавших оказался в частности один из серверов, используемый популярным мобильным сервисом Instapaper. Как написал в своём блоге основатель компании Marco Arment,

So the FBI now has illegal possession of nearly all of Instapaper’s data and a moderate portion of its codebase, and as far as I know, this is completely out of my control.

Due to the police culture in the United States, especially at the federal level, I don’t expect to ever get an explanation for this, have the server or its data returned, or be reimbursed for the damage they have illegally caused.

Вот так и живём....
