Confiscation of FreeHal servers

Translation:
In recent days, apparently carried out on my home computer through a trojan various hacker attacks. According to current information, the server FreeHAL project were not affected, but these were also the end of March seized by the police and possibly used as evidence. The possibility of a compromise of the BOINC server can be excluded since no unauthorized access to the compiler or the secret key can be done. The aim of the attacks apparently was blackmailing several people from my private life, a school and an institution for the publication of private information of individuals and the threat to sabotage online stores. Unfortunately we have no exact information about the nature and extent of prior investigation, therefore no conclusion can yet be made ​​as to when a controlled operation is again possible. We try to explain this matter as quickly as possible. For more information please send an e-mail to freehal@gmx.de . Responsible for the investigation, the Police Department Central Hesse and the Police Directorate of Heidelberg and the respective prosecutors' offices. We are of course any donations, both financial as well as in hardware, as it currently does not look it, that we have the data and the hardware in the near future to get back.

So, in short someone attacked the server and it has been taken/seized by the police.

Reminds me of Andoric which was taken by police someone made the claim of pirate data on it.
