BitTorrent tracker facing attack, the biggest torrent tracker out there, is facing serious DDOS attacks.

Currently 350.000 peers have problems connecting. The same thing happended to several popular trackers about a year ago. Mongo offers the following solution to fix the problem…

If you’ve downloaded a torrent with the announce, simply open the torrent up with Maketorrent – second tab "View/Edit Torrent" and change the tracker announce to, click save – and the torrent will work anyways. This is also doable in clients that support editing of torrents. You can also use the command line; For linux; /path/to/.torrent For windows: python c:\path\to.torrent

Let’s hope things ge back to normal asap.
