Downfall of Freedom Hosting II
The hosting of child pornography is what led to the downfall of FHII. Despite the clear rule about "zero tolerance for child pornography," the hosting of the main site about it, Lolita City, triggered Operation DarkNet's focus on the service. According to the statement posted on the homepage at the time, more than 50% child pornography was found on the server.
