Submission + - Austrian police raid privacy network over child porn (bbc.co.uk)

another random user writes: Austrian police have seized servers that were part of a global anonymous browsing system, after images showing child sex abuse were found passing through them.

Police raided the home of William Weber, who ran the servers, and charged him with distributing illegal images.

Mr Weber denied the charges and said he had no knowledge of what people did via the servers, which supported Tor.

Mr Weber operated part of the Tor network known as an "exit node". These act as a link between the wider net and the cloud of computers forming the core of the Tor network.
