Thread Contributor: AlbusKickassTorrents Owner Arrested
#1
Hello Everyone.

In case you haven't heard the news, it looks like the authorities have arrested the alleged founder arrested of the popular torrent site and compromised much of the entire site's operation. Facebook and Apple were involved in relaying information to the authorities that helped to track down the founder, which was verified as being the same IP that logged into his Coinbase account. I won't go into the details here as TorrentFreak has already done an excellent job with it's coverage thus far.

If you're an avid torrenter, it's a great time to start making your way to private trackers.

Something outlandish. The court documents are alleging income in the $20 million+ range, which is rubbish.

KAT was always the readily available site that I'd use to pull something that was too random to be on a private tracker. Ah well, Newsgroups is where its at for me these days.

Didn't want him to get caught as such - but after years of looking for him they finally found him.
