Complaints over Malware on Pirate Sites Increase in Number

Complaints over Malware on Pirate Sites Increase in Number

Under the business laws, online services need a way to monetize their operations to remain afloat. But given the increasing pressure in the advertising world, options for “pirate” websites are more and more narrow today. Perhaps, this explains why many pirate websites let their users down, becoming some of the worst offenders when it comes to serving junk, malware and viruses to their users.

Such complaints might be commissioned or funded by the entertainment industry groups to create an apocalyptic vision for anyone daring to use a “pirate” service. At the same time, content industries intensify their pressure to have advertisers stop serving any website they have not authorized, thus effectively forcing file-sharing services into the advertising backwaters. As a result, the chance of bad ads appearing in front of users is increasing.

Of course, anti-piracy groups perfectly understand the importance of diminishing the user experience on illegal file-sharing services. If such websites are difficult to access because of web blocking and risky to use due to dodgy ads, many users may give up and turn to the legitimate alternative.

Indeed, in reality there are large numbers of pirate websites that fall way below the standards in terms of user experience due to aggressive redirects, misleading advertising, fake virus warnings and malware. In the worst case scenarios, streaming websites bombard the visitor with an endless stream of dubious advertising techniques, annoying the user. The visitors respond to aggressive advertising by becoming more aware of their ad blocking options and refuse to contribute a dime to the upkeep of the pirate sites.

analogkid6103 avatarMaybe we should find a way to make the downloaders more aware of the ad blockers.
I find the entire internet experience much improved from them and not just on torrent sites. Advertising is thick and aggressive in most areas of the web. And malware and adware are the same. At least malware is honest: it comes to steal from us and makes no bones about it.
Adware on the other hand lies about helping and improving the web experience while helping to ruin it. It makes me sick. And worse im not finding a long term solution for these issues. I hate it when my peeps are being flayed alive from just trying to access my shares. I myself have attempted to get content from different torrent sites on a "virgen" computer (no blockers at all installed) and it was the worst experience I have had since I was a noob. It is like running through a minefield blindfolded while under fire and with a ticking clock. Horrible. Its hard to believe we get as much traffic as we do. My hats off to them for still coming. I must put together a package of browser apps to address this or even better maybe our app stud menin would do it. There are no easy answers to this.
