Zeiko Anonymous, the hacker who launched distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attacks against several BitTorrent websites last week, is back. He has turned his attention to The Pirate Bay, isoHunt, Fenopy, Bitsnoop and TorrentPortal.
On this occasion, the hacker’s first target has been The Pirate Bay (thepiratebay.se). The site’s representatives have told TorrentFreak that they’ve been hit with a “normal” SYN flood attack that’s powered by a small botnet.
However, The Pirate Bay team isn’t too concerned. They’ve taken advantage of the “break” to do some database upgrades.
After attacking The Pirate Bay, Zeiko Anonymous turned his attention to isoHunt. Soon after the attack was launched, isoHunt representatives revealed that the site was down.
“We are presently experiencing some issues due to a DDoS, please bear with us,” they wrote on Twitter.
Fenopy, BitSnoop and TorrentPortal suffered the same fate. Currently, most of the sites are back online, except for TorrentPortal.
Last time, the hacker launched the attacks on BitTorrent sites after private tracker What.cd refused to give him an invite. This time, he didn't reveal his reasons for taking down the websites.
