Initially thought of as being under a series of DDoS attacks, the torrent tracking site was out for a prolonged duration following which it started serving malware laden ads. Last week Ukrainian authorities got the best of Demonoid and stopped the site completely after it raided ColoCall, which was the hosting service provider for the site. The Demonoid admin is believed to be still at large.
As it stands, three Demonoid domains: Demonoid.me, Demonoid.com and Demonoid.ph are up for sale on Sedo. The time is ripe as of now for the sale of the domain names as it has caught the attention of many on and off the web. The traffic that Demonoid used to attract was huge and internet marketers would definitely want to bank on this.
Anonymous has taken a vow to avenge the closure of Demonoid and is going to revive the torrent tracker through mirror sites and by creating a group called “open-source Demonoid”.
