Submission + - Austrian Man Raided For Running Tor Node Exit (lowendtalk.com) 5

An anonymous reader writes: From William, the man affected: "Yes, it happened to me now as well — Yesterday i got raided for someone sharing child pornography over one of my Tor exits.

I'm good so far, not in jail, but all my computers and hardware have been confiscated.

If convicted i could face up to 6 years in jail, of course i do not want that and i also want to try to set a legal base for running Tor exit nodes in Austria or even the EU.

More likely they registered that domain for brand protection and repurposed it to keep their services up while they regain control of the .com. It's easier to register a domain than go through the UDRP with ICANN and/or the applicable registry to take it down when someone starts using it maliciously.
