Demonoid, one of the world's biggest torrent sites, was taken down by a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack last week. Now, the demonoid.me domain has started redirecting to random bullshit sites. Does this mean Demonoid is gone for good?
It turned out, according to a statement supplied to TorrentFreak, that Demonoid had been taken down by a massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack. The site's administrator reportedly said the fix could take a while, and so the waiting game began. A full week passed, and then last night, the server was turned off completely and the site started serving up a 404 (Not Found error message).
Is this really just a consequence of the DDOS attack last week or is there something bigger happening? Is this some kind of anti-piracy initiative? Is Demonoid dead or will the site resurface once again under a different domain (remember, Demonoid originally started at demonoid.com)?
Complete bullshit in my opinion,.. I LOVE Demonoid (SOO MUCH BURN NOTICE) but yeah Anyone Have thought's?
