They decided instead to keep the service offline as they found evidence that child pornography sites on the service went over the mandated free hosting limit, meaning that Freedom Hosting II was not only encouraging the sites but actually profiting from them as well.

The hacker said that the action was their “first hack ever”, explaining that they “just had the right idea”.
