Read the full story.  The raid on InfoCom took place on 6 September.  The
raid required a warrant which requires "probable cause" though press
reports say that Infocom said that they can't imagine what the FBI was
looking for, and things must be based on a "bad tip".

That the raid shut down websites was temporary side-effect of collecting
data from the servers.  Most websites up within hours.

Unfortunately Infocom doesn't seem to have a press release about it.  But
looking at their site, they look like a good hosting company.
