FBI's Story of Finding Silk Road's Server Sounds a Lot Like Hacking

• Wired.com
The bureau's latest court filing in the case describes how the hidden site accidentally revealed its location to anyone who visited its login page, thanks to a software misconfiguration.

But the technical side of the security community, who have long tracked the dark web's experiments in evading law enforcement, don't buy that simple story. They read the FBI's statement differently: as a carefully worded admission that it didn't knock on the Silk Road's door so much as hack its way in.

As the trial of alleged Silk Road creator Ross Ulbricht approaches, his defense has focused on how the government initially discovered the Silk Road's server in Iceland, in spite of the site using the anonymity software Tor to hide its physical location.
