What's Hawt: Anonymous is striking back with its own file locker after MegaUpload was shut down just last week on a list of copyright charges.
SOPA will definitely not be passed now /s
Does it come preloaded with all the goodies MU had?
Gotta wait and see till the launch date. Check out their FAQ.
Interesting...But do do you really want to trust a group like this? It could really comeback to bite you if you have to give out your information to them.
Yea for real.. no way you would want to give these people your credit card for the premium account lol... Still though glad they are doing something about this nonsense though. The internet should remain free.
I don't think they have a problem to get your credit card if they want
Downloaders out there... This year its going to be the end of your downloading career. Lets start to search for a new method to download or leech out the stuffs we are downloading right now. Looks like 2012 is really coming to an end of EVERYTHING !!! MegaUpload - Closed. VideoBB - Closed! would disappear soon. FileServe - Closing does not sell premium. Videoz - closed and locked in the countries affiliated with the USA. FileJungle - Deleting files. Locked in the U.S.. UploadStation - Locked in the U.S.. FileSonic - the news is arbitrary (under FBI investigation). Uploaded - Banned U.S. and the FBI went after the owners who are gone. FilePost - Deleting all material (so will leave executables, pdfs, txts) 4shared - Deleting files with copyright and waits in line at the FBI. MediaFire - Called to testify in the next 90 days and it will open doors pro FBI Org torrent - could vanish with everything within 30 days "he is under criminal investigation" Network Share mIRC - awaiting the decision of the case to continue or terminate Torrente everything. Koshiki - operating 100% Japan will not join the SOPA / PIPA Shienko Box - 100% working china / korea will not join the SOPA / PIPA ShareX BR - group UOL / BOL / iG say they will join the SOPA / PIPA Japan, China and Korea have a say NO to the FBI and that even if laws are passed in the USA will not have any value within the sovereignty of their countries! a copy pasta from fb, I knew this was bad shits really going down. -_- I support this. Our digital freedom fate falls in the hands of Russia Sweden china and some other companies...
Thanks for that detailed posted. I completely forgot about some of those other sites... but I'm REALLY sad that a lot of them have buckled under! :(
You can soon add Finland to that list. "Customers of the Elisa and Saunalahti internet service providers can no longer use those internet connections to visit The Pirate Bay website. Helsinki District Court ordered the ISPs to block the Pirate Bay last October, but the block went into effect on Monday. Elisa was the first company pursued because more than one third of its customers use the torrent site. The company has appealed the decision. The website of Finland's Copyright Information and Anti-Piracy Centre was unavailable on Monday afternoon, possibly because of a denial of service attack by Finnish activists of the group Anonymous, protesting the block imposed on The Pirate Bay. AnonFinland announced responsibility for the action in Twitter messages, referring to the court-ordered ban on access as "elisagate" and criticising it as censorship." http://yle.fi/uutiset/news/... That block is pathetic though, use a proxy and you're done. But wow, I'm amazed that Anon actually attacked the Mafia behind this instead of the ISP, who only made a formal and weak block when they were forced to either do that, or pay a 100,000€ fine.
lets see who has the balls to shut down one of their sites lol
Just put their site on ICE and it's gone. They are still DDoSing heaps of Brazil sites because that's the only stuff that causes a major fuss with-in the US government. The fact is the mageupload site is gone the boss of it is in a New Zealand jail and probably about to get shipped to the USA right now. All the western countries will have interpol ties between them. So even if a new anon file locker site came up it'll end up getting shut down it's not like you can do it without business info etc so it only gets easier to trace them down. Probably why some anon people are saying they have no part of a file locker. And even after all the DDoSing all the sites are back up working perfectly fine. It's all a waste of time. Even their database stealing is only coping off the data and posting it up. Even the email stuff isn't even of worth as it's just crap that anyone emails to people.
If they want, the ICE team could force big name companies like PayPal, VISA, Mastercard, and so on, to stop allowing transactions, which would put a huge dent in their operations.
Maybe one day the govt will realize how futile their efforts are and just give up. All they do is piss people off and stir up fear mongering. The dumb shit is always seen for what it is and never passes anyway, why don't they just give up? Seriously.
Just thought I might add, I think Oron.com is still working.. well it was yesterday.
crap i use mediafire!
Yeah, Anonymous plans do to a lot of crap, what happened to their anonymous social network?
What's really disturbing here is that governments and big corporations will use the piracy issue to transform the net into a neutered version, where we'll have to pay for most content and any sharing is heavily monitored and restricted. I also find it concerning that most pirates and people "sharing" online doesn't seem to realize this and is in fact playing straight into their hands. Yeah you can fight the man now, but when he regulates away most of the free internet the story will be a little different...
Isn't Anon the ones that keeps releasing information of ordinary customers from the companies they hack?!!! How the heck are we suppose to trust them with any of our info on this service?
Don't blame the citizens blame the banks!
P.S..Continue To Fight Back With The Internet Never Give up without a fight the tides will turn!
