property out of its network. After checking mail logs, investigators found the smoking

"'Operation Twins' was the result of a 12 month investigation by law enforcement
authorities in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Romania, Spain,
Sweden, Switzerland, the US and the UK. The operation focused on a criminal organisation
called the 'Shadowz Brotherhood,' whose activities included the production and distribution
