There is this thing with pirate sites, just like real pirates, you cannot keep them down for long. On Wednesday, the alleged ringleader of torrent website Kickass Torrents or kat.cr, Artem Vaulin was arrested in Poland and the domains of his website were seized, but as expected, the piracy site is available online again in the form of clone sites.
There are multiple clones of the website available online and Verge reports that it has received an emailed statement from the creators of one such clone, named KAT.am, that says that the site is “hosted on multiple cloud servers to prevent blockade, and the hosting information is well hidden behind Cloudflare.”
According to The Verge:
The creators of KAT.am claims the site is “hosted on multiple cloud servers to prevent blockade, and the hosting information is well hidden behind Cloudflare.”
The anonymous contact said they’d improved on the original KickassTorrents site by adding a mobile version and noted (with the original, ambiguous, wording retained here) that the site “will have the complete torrent database of KAT, including the comments, user information intact.”
