Cock.li every year under radar: The authorities searched the servers of the e-mail and hosting provider Cock.li again. Everything has been going on for a few minutes. The service was once in the focus of the authorities one and four years ago. The cause of the recent seizure is still unclear.
The provider Cock.li can be hosted on Onion websites, also has its own Jabber server. You can pay there, among other things, with the crypto currencies Bitcoin and Monero. But the service is primarily known as an e-mail provider. Yesterday, it was announced that all servers had to be taken offline due to a search warrant. Due to the encryption, there is no risk that the investigators can access the data of users, it said.
For a few minutes, the servers are running again. Oddly enough, the operators were not contacted by the authorities. Like last time, the makers assume that they will not be informed about the background of the search in retrospect. One is now busy with Cock.li to find out what the investigators have done on their servers in detail. It is interesting, in particular, whether it has been possible to access the encrypted data of the users.
The provider has a number of entertaining as well as highly tasteless domains. horsefucker.org, nigge.rs, hitler.rocks, nuke.afrika or rape.lol are just a few of many examples that should provoke. In December 2015, as a precaution, all public schools in Los Angeles were closed by e-mail following a threat. The hoax came from an email from this provider. The New York authorities, on the other hand, did not respond to the threatening gestures by e-mail.
Operator of OvO Systems Ltd. with a mailbox in the Seychelles is the American Vincent Canfield, who has in the past often required the legal assistance of prominent lawyer Jesselyn Radack. Radack has represented whistleblowers like Thomas Drake and Edward Snowden in the past. Cock.li was founded in the last quarter of 2013 and is partly funded by donations and the sale of its own merchandising products. In the past, the service was quite popular amongst users of the 8Chan image board.
