Cryptome Shut Down. National Security Letter Issued?


www.infowars.com

Cryptome, has received a letter from its hosting service, Verio, indicating it will terminate service due for violation of its Acceptable Use Policy.

... the people who complained may work for the FBI...

...it should be noted that earlier this month Cryptome reported “that the US Department of Homeland Security is demanding the master key for DNS root zone, a demand that has other nations deeply alarmed. With the master key, DHS would have control over the internet"

This site is probably well known to ATS members. I visited Cryptome infrequently but was always amazed at some of the documentation available there.

Looks like they are in the crosshairs of the people wanting to control the internet. This is not the first time they have been shut down. The last entry on the site is a copy of the letter they received from their service provider.

I was able to access the site earlier, but it seem to be down at the moment.

Well then, isn't it already time to make some changes to counter Federal infiltration alarm ?
I mean, eight-ten years ago the guy who invented PGP said the secret services had some troubles with people encrypting their messages beyond known secret agency (all over) decryption techniques, and now, not to mention future site response encrypting all user info and all private messages within and out of the basic Forum Sites.

I really believe that some things should be allowed to kept private as with most mail. PGP or similar techniques maybe soon be re-born and heavily used?
Suppose, what's posted means it's free to all, but what's sent privately can and may eventually include proven privacy methods.
