How easy is it to recover your web farm after the FBI takes over?

mstrauss

The FBI has made several raids on web-hosting server farms this month in their plan to go after two hacker groups that have been causing an increasing number of security exploits. During these raids, the FBI seizes the hardware assets, but in previous raids they also went after DNS providers. How can a company affected by these actions get their websites and web services back online in a timely fashion? And if the FBI starts messing with DNS servers, won’t that just make it more difficult?
