Bulgarian Largest BitTorrent Sites Went Down

Bulgarian Largest BitTorrent Sites Went Down

Last weekend two of the biggest European BitTorrent websites, ArenaBG and Zamunda,both having a history of being targeted by the Bulgarian authorities, were reported offline. The rumors were that the websites had been taken offline by the Bulgarian anti-mafia outfit or hacked by a secret government department.

Although the country’s Computer Crime Department made quite a lot of noise in 2010, taking offline a number of websites involved in online file-sharing and warez piracy, the Bulgarian largest BitTorrent trackers, ArenaBG and Zamunda, have remained online. However, in the early Saturday morning, Zamunda suddenly went offline, quickly followed by its fellow ArenaBG. Meanwhile, a posting on the ArenaBG’s separate forum spelled doom, saying that “once again the Internet society of free sharing of data is under threat”. The posting also pointed at the initiator of the event – some secret group called “Council for the Protection of Intellectual Property”, seeming to be an inter-ministerial body.

Unsurprisingly, this dramatic version was quickly reported by a few news outlets in the country, starting to apparently confirm that the authorities had hacked or launched a DDoS attack onto the BitTorrent websites and taken them down. Meanwhile, there may be a simpler explanation for the event: according to another source, at the weekend Zamunda suffered “a technical malfunction of some equipment”, which caused the extended downtime. At the same time, while Zamunda went down, all Internet users needed an immediate replacement service, so they all flooded to ArenaBG. The latter just failed to cope and went offline overloaded.

In addition, the Bulgarian authorities has denied any involvement in the event, but were glad to use the opportunity to warn the BitTorrent trackers that since they are going on “violating the law” they can expect real attention in the near future. In short words, the panic in the country certainly shows that the local BitTorrent community currently exists on a knife edge.
