“Brown is being charged with two counts of obstruction, which stem from a raid on his apartment in March 2012. According to the indictment, Brown “did knowingly and corruptly conceal and attempt to conceal records, documents, and digital data contained on two laptop computers.” He was aided and abetted by someone the indictment refers to as “KM,” who is believed to be his mother.”

In plain language, this probably means he has heavy duty encryption on his computer, most probably the free (as in speech) Truecrypt, and he won’t give the password to inspectors. Since he has a 5th Amendment right to not incrimina… hahaha, can’t even finish that one.

But seriously, without that password and assuming it’s a 2048 bit key, it’ll take them oh, give or take 4,294,967,296 x 1.5 million (6.4 quadrillion) years, or 470,000 times the age of the universe, to break into.

Give or take a few epochs.

If it’s a 4096 bit key… I don’t think I have enough characters in the box here to type the number of years it would take to crack.

re: #1 NJDhockeyfan

Yeah who gives a shit about the important stuff - this is great entertainment, right? Their energy is far better spent prosecuting this one harmless guy, than on the investigating defense contractors who do what Brown is being charged with on a massive scale, stealing tens if not hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars.
Because in that part of the world, even the federal prosecutors are run by the governor’s office and the GOP. And they bow down to the likes of Halliburton. They can not investigate them.
Yes, let’s celebrate trampling the little guy. Because his personality does not conform.
It’s this shit that corrupt corporations rely on to survive.

Bullshit, BB got involved with and put himself out as a “PR guy” for Anon of his own volition; that does not shield him from the consequences of breaking any laws in the process.

If you’re just gonna turn this into “why is the government going after poor little Barrett Brown instead of those corrupt companies and politicians”, you’re not gonna get very far here, because Barrett used to be a Lizard here too, two or three years ago; things got really, really strange with him all of a sudden, some time before OWS, and Charles had to give him the stick.

Just ask Charles about that episode…

The stuff Anonymous does not harmless. Theft of intellectual property, violations of privacy, unlawful publication of trade secrets; These acts have real societal costs. Barrett Brown openly approved of, encouraged, and defended such acts, here and elsewhere, making him anything but harmless.

The obstruction, per earlier reports, was in hiding his laptop at his mother’s place. Hence her role in the charges. His reaction to FBI action on her triggered his threatening rant against an FBI agent and his family. It’s not like they picked out some obscure lamb for a slaughter.
