KickassTorrents seized by feds and owner arrested

KickassTorrents seized by feds and owner arrested

If you try to visit a KickassTorrents domain name you will probably be greeted by a blank webpage or image from the FBI that claims “This domain has been seized.” KickassTorrents domain names, including kat.cr have been seized by feds and the alleged owner, a 30 year old Ukranian man named Artem Vaulin was arrested in Poland on July 20th. Other KickassTorrents like kat.tv are expected to be seized by Verisign.

kickasstorrents seized by feds

The United States Federal Government arrested the alleged owner of KickassTorrents in Poland and charged the man with criminal copyright infringement and money laundering. Furthermore, a federal courthouse in Chicago also ordered the seizure of several KickassTorrents domain names, including kat.cr and kickass.to.

kickasstorrents federal court complaint

KickassTorrents happens to be the world’s largest torrenting website after the fall (and slight rise) of ThePirateBay. KickassTorrents websites have millions of unique visitors stopping by their websites to download torrents, read blogs, and have discussions every day. However, this new blockade on the popular torrenting website suspends immediate hope of a return for the popular torrenting website in the near future.

Another thing to be weary about is that the federal government might now have information about their users and uploaders. The complaint mentions private messages that were sent through KickassTorrents. This suggests that authorities have obtain access to a large amount of data.

Regular users of the website are unlikely to be targeted by the government for any purpose. However, big-time uploaders might have something to fear. The information gathered can possibly be used in future investigations against large uploaders.

Feds posed as advertisers

The complaint filed in the district court against KickassTorrents and owner Vaulin reveals that the federal government posed as an advertiser which allowed them to obtain access to KAT’s bank account.

Apple gave feds personal information

The complaint also discloses that Apple gave the federal government personal details of Vaulin after the feds cross-referenced an IP-address used for an iTunes transaction with an IP-address that was used to login to KAT’s Facebook account.

“Records provided by Apple showed that tirm@me.com conducted an iTunes transaction using IP Address 109.86.226.203 on or about July 31, 2015. The same IP Address was used on the same day to login into the KAT Facebook,” the complaint states.

On this matter, Assistant Attorney General Caldwell comment that “KickassTorrents helped to distribute over $1 billion in pirated files” and that “Vaulin is charged with running today’s most visited illegal file-sharing website, responsible for unlawfully distributing well over $1 billion of copyrighted materials.”

Caldwell also added that “In an effort to evade law enforcement, Vaulin allegedly relied on servers located in countries around the world and moved his domains due to repeated seizures and civil lawsuits. His arrest in Poland, however, demonstrates again that cybercriminals can run, but they cannot hide from justice.”

Could there be a comeback for KickassTorrents in store? The future is not clear at this moment.

 

How to play Pokémon Go on your computer

How to play Pokémon Go on your computer

Did you know that you can play Pokémon Go on your computer using an Android emulator called BlueStacks and Fake GPS app called FakeGPS Free? It’s true; However, your phone would be the preferred choice. The difference between Pokémon Pokemon Go on your computer and playing on your phone is a wide one.

play pokemon go on your computer

There is really only one better option that can be fulfilled by playing Pokémon Go on your computer compared to playing the game on your phone. Playing Pokémon Go on your computer allows you to teleport (something Pokémon Go game developers could penalize you for). If you use the Fake GPS app you can chose a location anywhere in the world that the app enables you to. For example, I wasn’t able to teleport to Antarctica, but I was able to teleport to North Korea. In North Korea I did not find any Pokémon or monuments so I then went to the Grand Canyon and the Phoenix Zoo where I was able to hunt many pocket monsters. Using the Pokémon Go teleport option by utilizing the Fake GPS app is a risk that can get you penalized if you plan to play Pokémon Go on your computer.

Other issues with playing Pokémon Go on your computer are that you cannot really walk around to hunt because you can only go as far as your wifi or internet connection cable allows. In order to hunt while playing Pokémon Go on your computer you have to switch screens on the emulator and manually let the Fake GPS know where you want to go. Even if you want to take 3 steps in one direction to catch a Pokémon out of your range you will need to switch back to the Fake GPS app and tell it where to go. Furthermore, the Fake GPS app displays advertisements once in a while, so moving between the Fake GPS app and Pokémon Go app on your computer can be disrupted with full-screen advertisements you have to click out of.

Playing Pokémon Go on your computer is also plagued by horrid functionality and performance. The Pokémon Go game for your computer is very slow and very laggy. Moving around and simply clicking on a Pokémon is a task, but it’s achievable.

I would recommend to play Pokémon Go on your phone as opposed to playing Pokémon Go on your computer. The Pokémon Go game on your computer is very limited compared to the Pokémon Go phone application and there is always the risk of getting banned. You will have a much better playing experience if you play the app on your phone and not on the computer. However, it might be fruitful for Pokémon Go users who have existing accounts and want to teleport to random locations. You can even stand outside a gym and wait for someone to attack it so you can immediately take it back if they are able to infiltrate it.

How to download and play Pokémon Go on your computer

1. Download and install an Android emulator app called BlueStacks on your Windows or Mac computer.

2. Once BlueStacks is installed click the Settings icon in the top menu bar and click Settings in the list.

add account

3. In the Accounts section of the settings page click + Add account > Google and sign into your Google account.

4. Once you have signed into your Google Account go back to the Android page and use the search option. Search for an app called FakeGPS free in the app store and install it.

pokemon go for computer

5. Once FakeGPS Free has been installed go back to the Android page and search for Pokémon Go in the app store and install it. *You can also open the Fake GPS app and chose your location by double clicking anywhere on the map and clicking the arrow/play button on the bottom right of the screen. But, this will cause lag between the Fake GPS app and the game if you allow BlueStacks to have the two windows open at the same time.

pokemon go teleport

6. Open Pokémon Go on your computer once it has been installed. The Pokémon Go game might ask you to download or use GPS. If this is the case you can open the FakeGPS Free app and teleport to your location by double clicking anywhere in the world on the provided map and clicking the orange arrow/play button on the bottom right of the screen.

7. Once you chose a location on the FakeGPS Free app the app will suddenly close and you should automatically be taken back to Pokémon Go.

change location

8. To move again or simply teleport in Pokémon Go, slide your mouse (or finger if you are using a touch screen computer or device) down the top of the game window as you would if you were looking at notifications on your phone and click FakeGPS Free. This accesses the FakeGPS Free app interface and allows you to manually move your location or perform a Pokémon Go teleport to anywhere in the world. Once you double click the location you want to be in Pokémon Go on your computer click the arrow button at the bottom of the screen and you will be brought back to Pokémon Go. In order to move around using the FakeGPS Free app and Pokémon Go you will need to employ this method.

How to remove Python Ransomware

How to remove Python Ransomware

Python ransomware is an expression used to classify specific ransomware that is written in Python and amassed into a Windows executable utilizing PyInstaller. This grants the developer the ability to distribute all of the required Python files as a single executable.

python ransomware

An example of Python ransomware is HolyCrypt. HolyCrypt will encrypt files on a computer, add a new file extension, and hold the files for ransom. This particular version of Python ransomware encrypts files located under the %UserProfile% folder and will only encrypt files that contain specific file extensions. The extensions encrypted by this version of Python ransomware are:

.txt, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt, .pptx, .odt, .jpg, .png, .csv, .sql, .mdb, .sln, .php, .asp, .aspx, .html, .xml, .psd

The Python virus is commonly spread through malicious email attachments. The email attachments employ social engineering into the email content in order to trick unsuspecting victims into downloading and executing the attached file. Once the file is executed the ransomware will slowly follow through with the mission to encrypt your files and scare you into paying a ransom or fine to recover them.

It is not suggested by the professional cyber security community to pay ransomware authors in order to retrieve your files unless you are completely out of options. Instead you can use programs like Shadow Explorer, PhotoRec, or Recuva to restore files.

How to remove Bart virus (Removal Guide)

How to remove Bart virus (Removal Guide)

Bart virus is an expression used to identify ransomware that is distributed by the faction behind Locky Ransomware. Bart ransomware stores your files in a in a password protected zip archive and demands 3 bitcoins to get the files back. The ransomware is an offline encryptor so it’s not obligated to correspond with a Command & Control server like other ransomware infections do because it does not actually encrypt the files on your computer or add a new file extension name.
