One of the oldest private sites torrent world, the Demonoid.com, had its discontinued operations permanently. The site, which suffered a major DDoS attack in its history and was already out of breath a few weeks ago, had its servers seized by Ukrainian government officials. Who says this is a company source that the hosted, according to TorrentFreak.
Who already use Demonoid for some time know that this was not the first time the site was unavailable. But just as many torrent sites, it always rose again after a fall. Unfortunately, the DDoS attack against the site seems to have provoked its final death.
Soon after the attack, his sole administrator reported that the database had been hacked and altered in some way. Still, he said he could put air to the site – just take a long time. Now that the servers were seized this possibility became null.
According to an anonymous source from the local site Kommersant, the company that hosted the Demonoid in Ukraine, called ColoCall, had its servers seized last week. The source says, however, that the only site administrator remains free and so the Demonoid can return. But since he was already overwhelmed before the attack, it is very difficult to make it happen.
This is not the first time a major site linked to piracy of content is taken down. Earlier this year the Megaupload suffered the same fate. But in the case of Demonoid there is a different aspect: the domains were not seized. One of them, Demonoid.me was curiously recorded in Brazil.
Upgrade to 24:14 | The text originally cited US officials as masterminds of the operation, but it seems only the government of Ukraine is involved. The text has been corrected.
