Tor 'deep web' servers go offline as Irish man is held over child abuse images

There will be more on this on geek webpages, but the story appears to be that the FBI managed to use malware to identify some users IP addresses. I'm not sure that our man from the Guardian hasnt entangled at least two, maybe three separate stories together. Firstly, there's a guy in jail in Dublin awaiting extradition proceedings. secondly, a number of users of Tor disappeared from the network over the weekend. Thirdly, the story this post began with. More to follow, I suspect.
