Encrypted e-mail service linked to Edward Snowden shutting down
Ladar Levison, the owner of Lavabit, announced the move Thursday in a note posted to the service's home page. Though Levison's cryptic note didn't mention Snowden by name, he did say he's "been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people or walk away from nearly 10 years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit."
