FBI has revealed the method of discovery of Silk Road servers to the court dealing with the case of Ross Ulbricht. Ulbricht made a basic mistake to allow the CAPTCHA code used during the login process on the Silk Road website to be loaded from external server. Therefore, the FBI investigators could easily find out the real IP address of the Silk Road server and subsequently reveal its physical location.
