Hoax Piratebay.org Closure Again?
Slyck.com is reporting that the officials have seized ThePiratebay.org’s servers on Wednesday. The site quotes TPB’s ‘spokesman’ as saying that all the servers have been taken away. Which is a bit strange since the domain still answers to the five IPs it used to answer to earlier.
Of course, it could be a front end load balancer/switch (which again would not advertise dead backend IPs?) or an LVS cluster (which I don’t think they were using), but for all purposes, seized servers don’t leave behind IP addresses dangling in mid air. Sounds very much like another hoax to me.
Update: It is not a hoax, the MPAA has put out an official press release confirming the raid.
