The FBI Finally Says How It ‘Legally’ Pinpointed Silk Road’s Server

As the trial of alleged Silk Road drug market creator Ross Ulbricht approaches, the defense has highlighted the mystery of how law enforcement first located the main Silk Road server in an Icelandic data center, despite the computer being hidden by the formidable anonymity software Tor. Was the FBI tipped off to the server’s location by the NSA, who used a secret and possibly illegal Tor-cracking technique?

The story is too old to be commented.

Little of a misleading title, but... Interesting though. Sounds like someone spoke to early, now they need to back track for fear of revealing the technique. I mean, TOR is essentially our last hold out on web anonymity.
