Hey, does anyone know if the FBI has permission to reproduce the logo? Oh well, it's probably another hoax anyway.

I'm having a hard time untangling this web, though: the page is now a frameset that points to an IP ( owned by the San Diego Supercomputer Center. It looks like they've set a reverse pointer on this IP which makes it resolve to the Department of Homeland Security website, which is the technological equivalent of a fake ID.

SDSC is running Apache/2.0.52 Unix PHP/4.3.10 on Solaris 9. The frameset site is running Apache/2.0.46 (Red Hat). DHS has some Akamai voodoo going on. As late as two weeks ago, ET were running Apache/1.3.33 Unix PHP/4.3.10 on some flavor of Linux. At that time, the domain pointed to an IP ( under the control of LeaseWeb, a web host and DSL provider in the Netherlands. (That would explain the ICE connection.)

So, the ET site is pointing to a server at a government-funded research facility. That's the only thing that's really clear at this point. Does anyone have any more concrete information?
