    Interesting, nothing in that article really matches the title. At best, it's misleading.

    That being said, nothing new here.

    Which Tor servers did they control? I thought the attack against FH had nothing to do with controlling Tor servers but rather based on javascript exploits on FH's servers. I know FBI controls Tor exit nodes but I don't see how that had anything with the attack.

    The new part and the difference is that it took until 9/12/2013 for the FBI to admit what most of us suspected from the previous articles.
