Government Took My Bitcoins


The FBI seized the Silk Road and 26,000
Bitcoins


They accuse Ross Ulbricht AKA The Dread
Pirate Roberts of being the mastermind

How Do They Seize Bitcoins?


And that brings us
back to the fifth
amendment and
forced decryption


Only by already
knowing the
passwords to begin
with.

So...They Hacked It


The most likely theory is that they hacked the Tor
browser.



Used an account to follow the IP to the main
server.


From there to The evil mastermind.

But Silk Runs On Tor


The NSA has been
de
-
anonymizing Tor
browsers for a while.

How Tor Works

Node two opens it with its key, and receives a
connection to an exit node thus the process
repeats.

Then node three connects to the servers you
wanted to access

But there is a snoop point (red dotted line) and
certain things are visible.

Any information given can be used to implicate
you.

Every Computer uses three things to browse the
web.

Operating System

Browser

Internet Connection

Tor programs the browser to create a connection
to an entry node.

Once the connection is established the node
sends a packet back with a key

The browser then sends another connection to
the node to connect with a middle server.

The middle server then sends back to the
browser another key.

The Tor browser then sends a two layered
package to node one

Node one opens with its key and gets a pass
along command so it passes the package

You Look Lost, Well So Was The NSA

The Big Deal


The way the NSA
hacks Tor means less
privacy



These techniques,
while often noticeable
when abused make
people fear for their
privacy.




Do you want the NSA
to be able to control
your computer?


Openness is all fun
until the government
goes bad. Think
Stalin.

Quotes


"EFF will tell you there
are many pseudo
-
legitimate uses for
Tor...we're interested as
bad people use Tor"


“the biggest weakness of the complaint
(which is not something that really
needs to be answered here, but will
need to be answered in court) is how
the Silk Road server was discovered.


I would suspect that, since it was
imaged without being noticed that what
happened is the FBI (with a warrant)
hacked the site sufficient to discover
the site's IP by generating a non
-
Tor
phone
-
home, and then contacted the
country of the hosting provider which
then got the server imaged.”


Yet since the server imaging didn't
involve taking the server down or
disrupting service sufficient to spook
Mr DPR into taking his bitcoins and
running, I suspect that this was some
virtual
-
machine hosting provider.



"It will be interesting to
see what the authorities
do with those
assets...Will they sell
them through a licensed
exchange and will we be
able to track the sale?"
