The Feds shut down ‘rogue’ Internet operation


Score one for the good guys! The Federal Trade Commission has shut down the company that ran the Triple Fiber Network, a service that helped evildoers put verboten content online. Such content included viruses and child pornography.

The Triple Fiber Network, which was run out of Belize by a company called Pricewert LLC, provided servers and bandwidth to Internet criminals and troublemakers.

Apparently Triple Fiber Network was advertised in—and here come some square quotes—in the “darkest corners” of the Internet. I’m guessing that means IRC or Usenet or something. (Anything that’s not a WordPress blog is scary, I would imagine.)

In any event, let us celebrate by making smores, which I’m about to do IRL.
