Ex Federal Cyber Security Chief Guilty on Child Porn Charges

Former acting director of cyber security at the Department of Health and Human Services, Timothy DeFoggi, was convicted today in a Maryland court on 3 counts of child pornography including solicitation and distribution charges.

DeFoggi was arrested as part of an investigation into three child pornography websites the FBI shut down in 2012.

It has been revealed that he “even suggested meeting one member in person to fulfill their mutual fantasies to violently rape and murder children.”

According to wired.com “He is the sixth suspect charged via the FBI’s Operation Torpedo,an investigation into 3 child porn sites utilizing the TOR network.”

A few days prior to this conviction the BBC wrote an article about the TOR network (“NSA and GCHQ agents ‘leak Tor bugs’, alleges developer”.) The article says:

“British and American intelligence agents attempting to hack the “dark web” are being deliberately undermined by colleagues, it has been alleged.

Spies from both countries have been working on finding flaws in Tor, a popular way of anonymously accessing “hidden” sites.

But the team behind Tor says other spies are tipping them off, allowing them to quickly fix any vulnerabilities.

The agencies declined to comment.”
