KickassTorrents: Experiencing Problems Due to DDoS attack

By Jamie Pert - Jul 5, 2010

Ever since the authorities took down 9 websites including NinjaVideo and a host of other movie pirate websites that allowed users to watch new movies for free, demand for illegal movies have arisen, and with that, it seems that are also experiencing problems due to an apparent DDOS attack.

Kickasstorrents is a fairly new torrent website that has shown up on the internet. It is known for it’s very user friendly pages, and being far less crowded than most other torrent websites out there.

By visting the websites official Twitter page, a tweet appeared around 3 hours ago stating that they were experiencing a “heavy ddos attack,” and that they would be “fully online” in a few hours. A link was also posted so you can keep up with what was going on, but since the tweet, it seems that also can not be accessed. The official Facebook page also does not shed any light on the situation.

Since the official update, a number of tweets from several users have appeared on the internet asking if the site is working, or just generally being confused as to why the website is not functioning. As we now know, it is down to this DDOS attack which is known as a “distributed-denial-of-service-attack.” More information about what a DDOS can be found on Wikipedia.

Is the website working for you yet? Let us and our visitors know when it is back up.
