This week it’s been six months since Demonoid went offline.
With more than half a year of downtime Demonoid breaks the previous record it set in 2007/2008.
When Demonoid went down at the end of July the site’s admin initially blamed a DDoS attack.
In the days after the raid things went from bad to worse and the site’s Ukrainian hosting provider eventually pulled the plug.
This action followed a request from Interpol, who assisted Mexican authorities in their criminal investigation into the BitTorrent tracker and its operators.
Fast forward six-months and Demonoid is still offline.
However, there’s still a possibility that the site may eventually return.
The hope of Demonoid users was fueled in November when the tracker briefly returned, as well as by the recent switch to a new .HK domain.
Time will tell whether Demonoid can indeed make a comeback once again.This post is from the News Bits section of TorrentFreak where we present stories from around the web in a concise summary format.
