50 million Megaupload users…

… have data in danger of being erased.

From Daniel Wagner’s AP story, is looks like:

  • The Feds are done cloning servers. They have what they need. They don’t care.
  • Megaupload assets are frozen. They might care, but are helpless.
  • The hosting companies for Megaupload [Cogent|Carpathia] [don’t have access|can’t comment].

Presumably there are legitimate customers of Megaupload who stored stuff that did not stomp all over other peoples copyrights. If so, it sounds like those customers are screwed.

Update Feb 02 2012: Maybe not. Carpathia Hosting and the EFF are stepping up to the plate.
