The web’s largest TV pirate calls it quits after rip-off
First, the “EZTV.it” area was wolfed up for “5 figures” by a 3rd celebration, utilizing the identical firm identify (EZCloud) beneath which NovaKing had initially registered EZTV. That social gathering then proceeded to strip all references to the unique website, which had relocated to the .CH area within the meantime — whereas the brand new house owners tried to get the unique website to play alongside. Utilizing a pretend identify, fake-EZTV managed to grab the unique .SE area held by the EuroDNS registrar, regardless of NovaKing’s try to dam the transfer. From there, the rogue “EZCloud” was capable of reset numerous EZTV providers and passwords and take management of each area, ultimately together with EZTV.ch.
If this website tells you to not go to someplace, we might pay attention Although EZTV’s servers apparently weren’t compromised, a staffer stated NovaKing was distraught by the assault and determined to stroll away from his “non-revenue” labor of affection. The purloined EZTV websites proceed to function utilizing new, non-EZTV torrents (full with advertisements and pop-unders) whereas the operators declare that each one continues to be nicely. Nevertheless, different torrent websites like Pirate Bay and KickAss torrents have severed ties, and TPB is even warning customers to “keep away” from EZTV.ch. And if a website the place you go to get “web herpes,” (as my colleague put it), tells you to remain away, we might advise you to pay attention.
