The Untold story of SilkRoads

Post by phuketrichard » Sat May 02, 2015 8:19 pm

great read
Like most libertarians, Ross believed that drug use was a personal choice. And like all people paying attention, he observed that the war on drugs was a complete failure. The natural merchandise for his new enterprise would be drugs. “I was calling it Underground Brokers,” Ross wrote, “but eventually settled on Silk Road.”
as most of us believe today

"Underground Brokers." Glad they changed that.

That was a really good read. I hope they actually reveal how the servers were found. I may not be up to date, but I am pretty sure that information hasn't been made public yet.

Public enough for the FBI to find it on Reddit[1][2].

Not sure what your point is. The FBI has not revealed how they found it. There are a lot of likely possibilities and conjecture. I'm hoping to hear the government's account.

Then read what's available to you. Or would you like me to spoon feed it to you? SR was leaking IP addresses in error messages on its website. Shortly after the feds were all over the server's host.

If you're not sure then just read it dude. The FBI doesn't need to reveal anything, it's public information ffs. SR's IP has been all over the Internet for years. The FBI rarely admits anything. They lied in court, as you could read in the previous link I posted in the thread.

His investigation had started entirely at his desk with virtual gumshoe diligence, poking around Tor’s IP publishing protocol and spending time on Silk Road looking for chatter about the site’s security. His lucky break came from a thread on Reddit: A user posted a warning that Silk Road’s IP address was “leaking”—visible to other computers. Dread Pirate Roberts (or DPR, as he was often called) had been alerted to the problem by a user but ignored the warning.
