54457955 story Harvard Bomb Hoax Perpetrator Caught Despite Tor Use 547 Posted by Soulskill on Wednesday December 18, 2013 @05:13AM from the do-not-pass-go dept. Meshach writes "The FBI has caught the student who called in a bomb threat at Harvard University on December 16. The student used a temporary anonymous email account routed through Tor, but the FBI was able to trace it (PDF) because it originated from the Harvard wireless network. He could face as long as five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine if convicted. He made the threat to get out of an exam."
