Followup: FBI Returns Seized Computer Gear to RPI Student

A few weeks ago, we reported that a student at RPI had his computer equipment seized by the FBI in an investigation into the defacement of the New York Yankees' Web Site. We are happy to note that Andres Salomon, the student who was under investigation, received his equipment back from the FBI on November 10. You can read his account of every step of the investigation on this Web Page.

We are pleased to hear that the FBI returned the student's equipment so expeditiously. The tendency in criminal investigations of this nature is for computer equipment to be held by the police for long periods of time. No doubt both parties to this story have learned something from the experience.
