>From that article:
/Undercover law enforcement agents infiltrated the group in a sting
dubbed “Operation Adam Bomb.” According to the indictment, between
April and August 2011 one of the defendants received more than
$261,000 in PayPal transfers for the purchase of drugs, including
$2,160 that an undercover agent with the Drug Enforcement
Administration sent him to buy about 30 grams of LSD./
Seriously, how do you expect to remove $261,000 or even $2,000 from
PayPal without it somehow being traced back to you?!
/...the document /[indictment] /is filled with evidence gathered
from e-mail communications that took place between 2007 and 2009,
while the defendants were using Hushmail./
So the lesson of the day is that they used easily-trackable e-mail and
financial transactions to nail the network. It seems like TOR and
BitCoin are safe for now...

> And important point is 2 of them have drug detention history.

> So its not TOR atleast IMHO.
