Latest News Website reportedly taken down for posting sensitive Microsoft document on criminal investigation compliance. In a bizarre up-and-down -- literally -- series of events, the controversial site Cryptome.org was forced offline yesterday after posting a sensitive Microsoft document on its site, but was back online today. It all started when Cryptome, which operates as a repository for freedom of speech, cryptography, spy, and surveillance information and documents, posted a Microsoft surveillance compliance document titled "Microsoft Online Services Global Criminal Compliance Handbook." Next Microsoft filed a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) notice, and Cryptome refused to remove the document from the site.

Cryptome went back online today, posting a letter that appeared to be from its hosting provider, Network Solutions, stating that Microsoft had withdrawn its DCMA complaint.
