Submission + - Who Is Downloading the Torrented Facebook Files? (

eldavojohn writes: Aside from the obvious answer of everyone on Slashdot, Gizmodo's got an interesting scoop on a list of IPs acquired from Peer Block revealing who is downloading the Facebook user data torrented this week. Apple, Church of Scientology, Disney, Intel, IBM and several major government contractors just to name a few. The article notes that this doesn't mean it's sanctioned by these companies or even known to be happening but the IP addresses of requests coming to one of the users' machines match to lists of IP blocks for each company.
