Another busts on the US scene

The reports of new scene busts are happening more and more often. These more interested of you may clearly remember wave of scene busts and raids, the biggest of them from the beginning of last summer. And now it’s here again: FBI agents raided two datacentres with some huge sites hosted there and took down over 20 boxes. The affected hostings are Layered Tech and Servermatrix, both located in Texas, US. Owners of these hostings also provided FBI names and address of server owners so it may have serious consequences too.

The affected release groups include such a big names as FLAMES, DiAMOND, SAGA and HAFVCD (all movie groups) or F4GC and TBE (0day appz). Some of their presites were completely shutted down while others get offline due to recent events. There are also reports about one topsite with 24TB of space being confiscated in Servermatrix datacentre. The reason of these busts is quite simple – the insecurity of such servers hosted as normal colocation servers. Everyone can start such a server and it’s not hard for the network operators to find out there’s some site with enormous traffic and huge portion of warez, and then report it to MPAA/FBI. Security should be always on the first place…

    The .us scene had it coming for them, the insecure motherfuckers, think they own the place then go cry when they get busted because of there own insecurity. I couldnt care less for them anymore, there fault.

    Aren’t all the good servers in foreign countries anyway? Why would they host warez servers here where it’s highly illegal? Stupid..

  6. June 9th, 2006 | 00:33

    bulldoz, i doubt that. all good stuff comes from sua.

    Having your sites in the US is a bit like comitting murder in front of a police station, isn’t it?

    A shame, but .us colo scene hasn’t been, isn’t and won’t be ever secure. saga has already said goodbye and dmd status is unknown

    I know I left the curry scene in good time and was there when everything was still ‘the good old days’.

    Take care – all those affected, it scares the living shit out of everybody.

    “bulldoz, i doubt that. all good stuff comes from sua.”

    Alright mr. awesome scener, just watch how drastic the scene has changed since these ENOURMOUS busts has happened *lol* . People crying over this are probably the people who are following the trend. New groups will form, and in the next fe w months no-one is going to be giving a shit what groups were busted.

    God man, it’s been said a million times before:

    There have ALWAYS BEEN SCENE BUSTS. All it means is that there might be a little slow period before more groups start releasing.

    I’ve been doing this for 15 years now, scene busts are always going to happen. The people flipping out and crying are the ones that are new to the scene and probably rely on torrents completely

    I love reading these comments. Let the colos burn. Unfortunate that a non-colo went down though. That’s fucked up.

    dude there wouldnt even be torrents if it wasnt for the ”scene” and it was a .us site, becuase they use colos, and they are fuckin stupid

  25. Dan
    June 10th, 2006 | 04:08

    torrent dudes should stick to releasing shit they capped/ripped/whatever themselves.

    There was a non-colo busted as well. Sure, colos are insecure, but non-colos aren’t infallible…

    Scene goes with insecurity most of the time. There’s still a lot of way to secure it. No .eu sites and an encryption of the files can be a solution maybe. Anyway, busts are parts of the game like a leecher can be caught. We have to face our responsability sometimes even if i dont think the internet piracy should be punished especially by 10 years of jail in usa :/.

    “THEY are the easy targets while the mass of p2pers are releasing more and more original stuff every day..”

    You don’t actually think that p2p people release things, now do you?

  29. bulldOZ/AC
    June 10th, 2006 | 13:36


    P2P release _lots_ of stuff, you just need to know the sites. And prd made a good point.

    i release some things man keygens and cracks and im not from “scene” i m from rusia

    June 10th, 2006 | 20:31

    There’s a whole lotta bullshit being talked here. Scene using hacked servers? hahahaha

    Maybe the FXP board scene, but that’s no more “the scene” than the bittorrent trackers are.

    I appreciate the p2pers that release their own stuff. In the past i did too, tvrips, but i move on to bigger things, with bigger rewards and, yes, bigger risks. I don’t like p2pers spreading stuff i released intended to be shared only with other sceners, but it happens, so fuck it.

    there’s no .us scene anymore. just us suppliers, but they can use .eu sites aswell, as speeds us-eu raised to a very usable value nowadays. core of the scene has always been and will be in europe.
