Way back in February 2015, the FBI infiltrated Playpen, a child pornography ring on the dark web. After taking control of the site, the FBI could have shut it down. But it didn’t.
The FBI is facing accusations that malware it deployed while running Operation Playpen, a sting that infiltrated and maintained a dark web child pornography website for two weeks and eventually led to more than 100 arrests, was illegal. But the agency swears that using malware was good because, well, the FBI had good…
Over the past four days, some Twitter users have been noticing something strange: a flurry of tweets that appear to depict a young person removing their underwear.
Tor's had a tough week. Just a few days ago, the organization made the difficult announcement that an attack on their system likely stripped users of anonymity. Now, Wired reports that the FBI effort has been running a campaign to identify Tor users by installing malware on their computers for years, virtually…
A Dutch organization called Terre des Hommes has identified some 1,000 alleged child-sex predators by luring them in with a computer-animated prepubescent Philippine girl on Internet chat rooms. The online victimization of children, it would appear, is far worse than imagined.

"Operation Protect Our Children" sounded great! The Department of Justice and Homeland Security's tag-team beatdown was supposed to seize ten criminal sites this past weekend. Instead, it shuttered 84,000 innocent domains. And replaced them with a banner labeling them as child porn traffickers. Whoops!
The fellow in this photo frequently serves as an expert witness in child pornography cases. He's currently being sued for doing things like "transforming a picture of a 5-year-old girl eating a doughnut into one of her having oral sex."
Poor Aaron Klein. He left collateral for his bar tab, actually returned to pay, and got arrested. Can't be his fault the collateral he left was a kiddie porn filled cellphone. I'm sure his cat did it.
This is Chandler. And he is not only being accused of being a child molester. He is also stupid.
Floridian Keith Griffin most certainly didn't download over a thousand images containing child pornography. No siree. It must've been his dear puddy-tat who downloaded pictures of those oh-so-illegal birds.
