German Hackers Club Revived Popular BitTorrent Tracker

German Hackers Club Revived Popular BitTorrent Tracker

After short absence, the popular Denis.Stalker tracker is now back under a new name. It turned out that due to recent domain names seizures in the United States, the tracker preferred to move from its well-known .com domain to a new one, hosted by the well respected hacker group named Chaos Computer Club. At the same time, The Pirate Bay also participates in tracker’s reboot by adding the new address to all newly uploaded torrents.

In summer 2010, Denis.Stalker accounted for over 10 million peers and 1.5 million active torrents, which made it number three among the largest public BitTorrent trackers. Operating on the Opentracker software, the site has been well-known in the worldwide BitTorrent community for many years.

However, several months ago, Denis.Stalker suddenly went offline for no apparent reason. Meanwhile, its official blog also went silent and never answered any calls from the public. The old denis.stalker.h3q.com doesn’t response today either, but the team behind the tracker managed to revive it under a new name. They moved denis.stalker tracker to a new host at tracker.ccc.de.

The domain name was changed mainly because of the recent US seizures of file-sharing related domain names. Despite the fact that the standalone BitTorrent tracker won’t be the first target coming to mind, today a non-American controlled domain name is just the safest option.

So, currently the tracker is hosted on the main domain of the German influential hacker group named Chaos Computer Club. The organization is actually one of the best places to be in – with over 4,000 members, it hosts Europe’s largest annual hacker congress. Since one of the group’s main motives is to protect freedom of information, it apparently fits well with the BitTorrent tracker’s online activities.

If you know how to edit your hosts file, you can update it in order to let torrents with the old domain name work, changing denis.stalker.h3q.com for tracker.ccc.de. The port remained 6969, just like the old one.

The Pirate Bay also took a hand in the adoption of the new address – it is currently adding it to all newly uploaded torrents. This resulted in the new domain tracking over 50,000 torrents and more than 500,000 peers in only a few days. So, despite the fact that the old name of Denis.Stalker is not back, the service itself has been revived – just another good news!
