Structural integrity of AWS data centre threatened

04/09/2021

Seth Aaron Pendly, a 28 year old American, has been charged for allegedly plotting to destroy an AWS (Amazon Web Services) data centre in Virginia using C-4 explosives and he faces up to 20 years in prison.

The arrest was made possible thanks to the work of the FBI and a citizen's tip based on statements made by the defendant on a forum dedicated to organise militias on the Internet.
