Demonoid owners in trouble in Ukraine and Mexico, subjected to criminal investigation
When Demonoid went down on July 25 due to a DDOS attack, some thought of it as a sign of bad things coming for the infamous torrent site. And sure enough it was. In an effort to keep Demonoid down and unoperational, authorities in Ukraine and Mexico went after the torrent site. Demonoid was shut down in Ukraine and is now facing criminal investigation in Mexico for copyright infringement.
Demonoid was shut down in Ukraine through data center Colo Call. After receiving a copy of the order from investigators, Colo Call immediately complied and severed ties with Demonoid.
The next move for authorities is to go after Demonoid‘s top management, who are said to be in Mexico. They are reported to still be at large.
Demonoid is one of the top torrent sites, hosting thousands of files for music, videos, software, e-books and many more. Like The Pirate Bay, Demonoid has battled with criminal charges in the past and has been the subject of DDOS attacks several times. Still, the torrent site has always found a way to come back.
