Yesterday we broke the news that MegaUpload’s user data was at risk.
Late Friday MegaUpload received a letter from the US Attorney stating that data of their customers could be deleted coming Thursday.
In an update a few hours ago, MegaUpload lawyer Ira Rothken told TorrentFreak that after talks with the various parties involved the data has been saved for at least two more weeks.
This gives MegaUpload and the authorities some extra time to find a solution.
The authorities have made some selective backups as evidence, but MegaUpload want to secure all data of their users.This post is from the News Bits section of TorrentFreak where we present stories from around the web in a concise summary format.
