Days later, using one man's password, "cfvlevfq," the FBI
connected to the Russians' own computers overseas and downloaded
781 megabytes of data. Only then did they obtain a search warrant
for the files. A U.S. judge condoned the tactic in a pretrial
ruling, partly because the searched computers were in Russia.

Trivia: "cfvlevfq" translates to "think yourself" in russian, if typed
on russian keyboard. :)
