  • MOST POPULAR TORRENT SITES 2017

    1KICKASSTORRENTS 

    ( Currently KAT is down, Try the other torrent sites below)
    KickassTorrents was founded in 2009 and surpassed The Pirate Bay in traffic last year. Battling various censorship efforts the site has burned through a few different domain names over the years.  

    2. THE PIRATE BAY

    The Pirate Bay is one of the main piracy icons. The torrent site wasn’t online at the beginning of 2015 and had to deal with a staff revolt. However, it quickly regained millions of users after a successful comeback operating from a hydra of domain names until last week. 

    3. EXTRATORRENT

    ExtraTorrent continues to gain more traffic and has become one of the most active torrent communities. The site is also the home of the popular ETTV and ETRG release groups. 

    4. TORRENTZ

    (Update August 2016: Torrentz has shut down)
    Torrentz has been the leading BitTorrent meta-search engine for many years. Unlike the other sites featured in the list Torrentz does not host any torrent files or magnet links, but redirects visitors to other places on the web. The site uses several domain names with .eu being the most popular. 

    5. RARBG

    RARBG, which started out as a Bulgarian tracker, was last year’s newcomer and continues to rake in more visitors. The site was blocked by UK ISPs last year, which put it on par with most other sites in the top 10. 

    6. 1337X

    1337x has traditionally been a community driven torrent site but several weeks ago most of the admins and moderators abandoned ship over security concerns. The coming year it will become clear whether 1337x can keep its popular status. 

    7. EZTV.AG

    TV-torrent distribution group EZTV shut down earlier this year after a hostile takeover. The site continued to operate under new ownership and releases its own torrents now. In solidarity with the original owners several large torrent sites have banned these ‘new’ releases from their sites. 

    8. TORRENTHOUND

    (Update September 2016: TorrentHound is gone)
    TorrentHound has been around since the last decade but is a newcomer in the top 10. It has also been on the radar of copyright holders this year. The torrent site is blocked in several countries and was reported as a piracy haven to the U.S. government, alongside many other sites in this list.

    9. YTS.AG

    YTS.ag has nothing to do with the original YTS or YIFY group, but aims to take its place. As with the new EZTV, several large torrent sites are not allowing the group to use the YIFY or YTS brands on their sites.

    10. TORRENTDOWNLOADS

    TorrentDownloads has been around for several years. The torrent site regained a spot in the top 10 this year after it was featured for the last time in 2011. It’s a no-nonsense index that provides torrents to millions of users each month.

  • Internet fraud: How to protech yourself from scammers?

    Protect yourself from scams

    • Be alert to the fact that scams exist. When dealing with uninvited contacts from people or businesses, whether it's over the phone, by mail, email, in person or on a social networking site, always consider the possibility that the approach may be a scam. Remember, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
    • Know who you're dealing with. If you've only ever met someone online or are unsure of the legitimacy of a business, take some time to do a bit more research. Do a Google image search on photos or search the internet for others who may have had dealings with them
    • Do not open suspicious texts, pop-up windows or emails – delete them: If unsure, verify the identity of the contact through an independent source such as a phone book or online search. Don't use the contact details provided in the message sent to you.
    • Keep your personal details secure. Put a lock on your mailbox and shred your bills and other important documents before throwing them out. Keep your passwords and pin numbers in a safe place. Be very careful about how much personal information you share on social media sites. Scammers can use your information and pictures to create a fake identity or to target you with a scam.

  • Goodbye! Yahoo to rename itself 'Altaba' after Verizon Deal Monday

    It's time to say goodbye to Yahoo!

    While Yahoo's core internet business was being sold to Verizon for $4.8 Billion, the remaining portions of the company left behind is renaming itself to Altaba Inc, which marks the sad ending of one of the most familiar brand names on the internet.

    In a public filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Monday, the company announced that after the planned sale of its core business to telecom giant Verizon, the leftover would change its brand name to Altaba.

    So, the company's branding you are familiar with will integrate with Verizon, and it is possible that the telecom titan may continue to use the Yahoo brand for some of the services that it will acquire in the deal.
     

    The remaining company under the new name Altaba Inc. is hanging on to its 15% ownership of Alibaba and 35.5% stake in Yahoo Japan, which is a joint venture with Softbank.

    Marissa Mayer to Leave Yahoo Board


    The newly formed company will operate as an investment company, and only five board members will remain at the company including Tor Braham, Catherine Friedman, Eric Brandt, Jeffrey Smith and Thomas McInerney.

    The rest of the company's board, including Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and co-founder David Filo, will step down from Altaba Inc. Mayer may be appointed for a role in Yahoo's integration at Verizon, though her position has yet to be announced.

    Mayer's intention to resign from the new board is "not due to any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company's operations, policies or practices," says the filing.

    The Yahoo acquisition deal was rumored to be on the rocks after the company disclosed multiple security breaches a few months ago affecting more than 1 Billion users.
     

    Moreover, over three months ago, Yahoo was also accused of building a secret backdoor in its system to scan the emails of hundreds of millions of its users at the request of a U.S. intelligence service.

    After Verizon had learned about those disclosures about hacking and spying, it was expecting a discount in the Yahoo acquisition deal, which may still be announced before the deal closes.
