Here is a copy of this post describing the attack:
This article was posted to r/freenet with the title "Successful Freenet
Attack Results in Arrest."  I don’t yet know where we can find the court
filings but I’m very curious to see more details.
I’ll copy my comment from Reddit on this, which includes some quotes: 
Interesting! This looks like the only attack I could think of short of
some way to break Freenet wide open, which is encouraging I guess. They
