Confiscation Of Free Hal Servers
« on: April 08, 2012, 03:42:41 PM »

Here's a surprising letter from Tobias Schulz about the current lack of work from FreeHal. Translated by Google.

Quote
Confiscation of our servers
In recent days, apparently carried out on my home computer via a Trojan horse hacker attacks. According to current information, the server FreeHAL the project were not affected, but these were also the end of March seized by the police and possibly be used as evidence.

The possibility of a compromise of the BOINC server can be excluded since no unauthorised access is to be the compiler or the secret key. The aim of the attacks apparently was blackmailing several people from my private life, a school and a university.

Unfortunately we have yet no precise information about the nature and extent of determining driving, so no conclusion can yet be made as to when a controlled operation is again possible. We try to explain this matter as quickly as possible.

For more information please send an e-mail to info@freehal.net. Responsible for the investigation, the police headquarters and the central Hesse Heidelberg Police Department or the respective prosecutors' offices.

We are delighted of course any donations, both financial as well as in hardware, as it currently does not look it, we get the data and the hardware in the foreseeable future.

The project FreeHAL
