CNET reports:

When the file-swapping site MegaUpload was shuttered by the U.S. government–and consequentially its offices raided, $42 million of its assets frozen, and its leader Kim DotCom arrested–some officials might not have thought of unintended consequences, such as the loss of legitimate files.

They also might not have realized that they too might be outed as having used MegaUpload.

During an interview with TorrentFreak this week, DotCom said, “Guess what–we found a large number of Mega accounts from U.S. government officials, including the Department of Justice and the U.S. Senate.”
