Kickass Torrent site is back !!
What are torrent sites:
BitTorrent file distribution system, a torrent file is a computer file that contains metadata about files and folders to be distributed, and usually also a list of the network locations of trackers, which are computers that help participants in the system find each other and form efficient distribution groups called swarms.
U.S authorities arrested the Artem Vaulin owner of BitTorrent website back in July 2016. He was alleged of illegally distribution of IP nearly $1 billion. According to a US complaint, KAT receives more than 50 million unique visitors a month, operates in 28 languages, and has a net worth of about $54 million.
After shutdown of Kickass a group devoted to this cause launched the Katcr.co , in order to provide same peer-to-peer services to users. Now Katcr.co is fully operational torrent website. Which seemed a full replica of Kickass torrent website.
After shutdown of the Kickass torrents Website last year, several websites appeared online with claims of substitute for Kickass torrents. Number of security researchers reported these websites having malicious intent to steal users confidential information.
The Kat.cr team seemed to be working really hard to bring clean torrents website back.
“In order to keep our members safe we chose to rebuild and keep only safe elements. Despite the fact that a rebuild took longer, the safety of our community comes first,”
one of the team members told TorrentFreak.
