Digital Privacy Activist Accused of Colleagues' Assault

Jacob Appelbaum, 33, has denied anonymous online accusations that he sexually harassed and assaulted his colleagues over the past few years. In fact, it was quite a bizarre twist for a prominent digital privacy activist, who has put lots of efforts in making it easier for people to act anonymously online. Jacob Appelbaum is closely linked to Edward Snowden and the Tor Project, a non-commercial entity behind the well-known anonymous web browser. Anonymous accusers recently set up a website to allege that Appelbaum emotionally and sexually abused others in the community.


Jacob Appelbaum maintains elite status in privacy technology and Internet freedom circles. Appelbaum is known for helping the reporters parse the trove of documents leaked by Edward Snowden. The researcher even accepted an award on behalf of the former NSA contractor, who is stilling living in exile in the Russian Federation.

This turn of event caused the activist to resign his post with the Tor Project. Jacob published a detailed statement to insist that someone has just launched “a spurious and vicious campaign” against him. He claimed that the accusations of criminal sexual misconduct against him were entirely false and could be part of a coordinated campaign against him as an anti-surveillance activist. This would not be very surprising after authorities have raided his Berlin apartment. Appelbaum admitted that as a longtime public advocate for free speech and a secure web, there have been plenty of attempts to undermine his work.

As for the accusations, Appelbaum said that like any other person, he might have had moments in his life when he may have inadvertently hurt or offended others’ feelings. As any other person, he apologized to the friends and colleagues in these cases.

However, Appelbaum’s surrounding in the Internet security community isn’t brushing off the attacks. Tor’s executive director Shari Steele said in a statement that new public allegations had been consistent with rumors they had been hearing for some time. She also admitted that the most recent allegations were much more serious than anything they had heard previously, and Appelbaum’s colleagues were therefore deeply troubled by those accounts.

No avatardo we not have courts anymore? the fact that this is being tried in public sets off all kinds of red flags regarding the authenticity of the allegations.

dwarfer66 avatar"he sexually harassed and assaulted his colleagues" thats also the problem when being a male, if an accusation is made you are automatically guilty.

No avataryou know, back in the day I'd never believe that people would just do something like this - but frankly, considering that documents uncovered show that this is *exactly* the kind of thing that the "powers that be" talk about doing to discredit those who reveal their crimes and machinations, and considering the nature of the "anonymous" attacks and "rumors", it's not too crazy to imagine that he's the victim of a targeted campaign. Of course, the injustice of the accusations won't change the fact that his career and reputation are now ruined. That's all it takes.

I'm thinking yup... and it wouldn't surprise me one bit if they made his case a carbon-copy of Assange's, right down to specific charges being exactly the same.
