The DOJ says that it was able to track down Sharp because of one tiny technical glitch — Sharp allegedly used SurfShark VPN to mask his identity while taking data and sending emails, but "in one fleeting instance," his real IP was identified and logged as connecting to the company’s GitHub. According to the DOJ, this happened when Sharp’s home internet went down, and then reconnected.
Imagine if this was because his Unifi Dream Machine Pro (or similar) had a memory leak and crashed — a very like scenario.
Plan foiled because he used Ubiquiti gear.
