FBI Agents Raid Dallas Computer Business

If you were online and couldn't access some websites today, we might know the reason why. The FBI raided a Dallas building that houses servers for several different websites.

CBS 11 News has learned that the raid is part of a general criminal investigation. Because of the confiscation of computers at Core IP Networks, a number of legitimate businesses have been affected.

From the downtown office building in the 2300 block of Bryan Street, FBI agents seized what one source described as millions of dollars in computer equipment.

Matthew Simpson, the owner of Core IP Networks, said in a letter posted online that FBI agents raided two floors and 'pulled the plug' on his clients' web servers starting at 6 o'clock Thursday morning. Agents also raided Simpson's house in Ovilla.

In the online letter Simpson said, "Neither I, nor Core IP are involved in any illegal activities of any kind. The only data that I have received thus far is that the FBI is investigating a company that has purchased services from Core IP in the past."

Simpson claims nearly 50 businesses are without access to their email and data. Some of those clients provide internet services to car dealers and other companies.

According to Simpson, some residents' access to 911 is also being affected because some of Core IPs primary customers include telephone companies.

The FBI isn't commenting on specifics but said it could take several days to restore the servers of the affected companies. Officials say they could speed up their analysis of the web servers if the affected companies would contact them.

Simpson closed his online letter with the statement, "If you run a datacenter, please be aware that in our great country, the FBI can come into your place of business at any time and take whatever they want, with no reason."

CBS 11 News emailed Simpson about the raid, but as of Thursday evening he had yet to respond.

Probably just reworking the innards. Swap out a few choice chips with NSA custom jobs, and you don't have to worry about someone reformatting the drives and leaving you in the dark.

The Endtimes. Don't worry, it has to get a whole lot worse before it gets better.
Zec 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Psa 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God.
Jer 6:2 I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate [woman].
STOCK UP NOW. You should have at least 6 months worth of basics for every member of your household. Stay away from crowds when trouble starts, do not forget water storage, tobacco is worth more than gold or silver, and be kind to hungry children.

This is kind of like the server seizures relating to P2P in Europe. It's got me wondering now what law was "broken." Since the FBI are involved, I don't think there will be any details made available.

Seize first, then look for evidence of a crime. Just because people and companies are losing money from it, during one of the worst economic times we've ever had, shouldn't matter any. I mean, why work with the innocent folks administering the servers, when you can just walk in and disrupt their entire operation?

Not sure, but I'd think it might be a little more useful for the bonehead FBI folks to knock on the door and simply add tracers to the servers, so they could compile the lists. Now they've ensured that: 1) folks will be even more careful about obscuring their existence, and 2) any ISP/host will be far less cooperative in handing over their servers, and will be picking up the phone to call their lawyer the moment they see the vans pull up.

I could see a couple hours of downtime for the FBI to sort out various clients and find their targets, but destroying a business is counter-productive.
