Freedom hosting II, the webhost that offered website hosting for tor and "Deep Web" users, has reportedly been breached by unknown "Anonymous" hackers. All webpages hosted by the company were displaying the following message Friday morning:
Hello Freedom Hosting II, you have been hacked
We are disappointed… This is an excerpt from your front page ‘We have a zero tolerance policy to child pornography.’ — but what we found while searching through your server is more than 50% child porn…
Moreover you host many scam sites, some of which are evidently run by yourself to cover hosting expenses.
All your files have been copied and your database has been dumped. (74GB of files and 2.3GB of database)
We are selling all data (excluding cp) for 0.1 BTC. Send 0.1 BTC to 14iCDyeCSp12AmhVfJGxtrzXDabFop4QtU and send your transaction id to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and We’ll get back to you with a full dump.
Up to January 31st you were hosting 10613 sites. Private keys are included in the dump. Show full list
We are Anonymous. We do not forgive. We do not forget. You should have expected us.
No Bitcoin payments had been reported on the address associated with the above message at the time of this article. Freedom Hosting is notorious for hosting fraud, scam, and child porn sites in both iterations of it's services.
