Submission + - DHS Screws Up Domain Seizures Again (

An anonymous reader writes: Once again, it appears that Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) group has screwed up seizing domains. This time it took a dynamic DNS provider, because apparently a few people who used it may have done something involving child porn. In doing so, however, ICE turned every one of the over 84,000 websites that use into an image claiming they were taken down for child porn. Perhaps some of those website owners will decide to file defamation charges against the US government for falsely claiming they were involved in child porn.
