Hoax Piratebay.org Closure Again?

leave a comment »

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.
