Tor Anonymizer Admin arrestee - New German Laws

Click on the link to this post to read an article at C/Net about a blog posting by one of the admins of the Tor anonymizer servers. The German police were investigating a bomb threat. The admin attempted to explain what the Tor system does, but it took a lawyer and some time to straighten things out.

This is a link to a related story at Ars Tecnica. A new German law is very harsh. It is aimed at hackers but has lots of unintended consequences.
