Keep2Share: Illegal Content Available. Pay by Google Wallet Visa & MasterCard

Keep2Share now have full credit card facilities back along with Google Wallet and nothing has changed when it comes to compliance. The site is still full of illegal and unlawful content, including incest, bestiality and potential child exploitation content, all able to be accessed when you buy a membership using your Visa or MasterCard.

One thing is clear, Visa and MasterCard need to immediately act against this site, ensure that the merchant acquirers involved are penalised and freeze all available funds then donate them to a worthwhile cause. None of this illicit income should ever be received by Keep2Share.

We have detailed the relentless and brazen exploits of Keep2Share many times on this blog. We have noted the illegal pornography available, we have examined the Keep2Share network of sites and we have demonstrated that this site has no compliance processes in place to prohibit copyright and unlawful content being published.

Now in our most recent examination of the site we have found hordes of incest content being made available and linked to from an equally distasteful incest themed forum. Keep2Share obviously have no controls in place to prohibit such content.

Rapidgator is one of the worst piracy sites on the planet. It’s owners directly profit from the theft of IP and encourage such theft through affiliations with piracy forums and the payment of uploaders.

We have looked closely at Keep2Share and FileBoom, both file lockers run by the same persons. We have also examined the large amount of television and movie piracy on Keep2Share as well as the illegal pornography being shared on Keep2Share. We have even highlighted the extensive software piracy on Keep2Share

FileBoom me

Keep2Share lost their credit card merchant account due to the content that they hosted, however the owners of FileBoom and Keep2Share have learnt nothing by the experience. In the past 24 hours we have completely re-indexed both sites and have come across some disturbing content.

Membership to FileBoom can be purchased directly on the site with Visa or Mastercard. Membership of Keep2Share can be purchased through resellers using both Visa and Mastercard.

UltraMegaBit.com UploadTo.Us Television Piracy

We have explored the rampant piracy on UltraMegaBit, which has now changed identity to UploadTo.Us, several times on this blog. We have detailed the criminal exploits of Rudy Corella, the loss of merchant accounts and the change of name of the site.

UPLOADTO US

One thing that remains constant is the uncontrolled piracy that takes place on this site. Happy to receive traffic from dozens of piracy forums and blogs, UltraMegaBit / UploadTo.us profits from the theft of content.

In this blog entry we explore how UploadTo.Us is now processing credit card payments again and how the site shares copyright television shows to paying members. You can get access to as much pirated content as you want with your Visa or Mastercard.

Television Piracy

UltraMegaBit.com / UploadTo.Us is a hub for unmitigated television piracy. No sooner are DMCA notices issued to take down content, the content is re-uploaded and available again. The owners of this site are not being held accountable for this disregard of content rights holders.

FIleOM out of business – Xerver takes over

After losing access to all forms of credit card payment processing, FileOM have gone broke. Some reports are that more than $150,000 is owed to affiliates.

FileOM  Easy way to share your files

However that is not the end for FileOM as it has been taken over by Xerver.co. At this stage it is unclear if Xerver will transfer all files across to Xerver or keep FileOM running as it is. What is clear is that Xerver have merged all affiliates to their platform.

XERVER

We have already targeted FileOM and will now target Xerver in the same way.

Initially Xerver was a lower priority site for us, however with the acquisition of FileOM we have decided to give this site top priority and we will be working to shut down all forms of credit card processing for Xerver as quickly as possible.

UltraMegaBit changes identity after losing merchant accounts

UltraMegaBit faced a problem in mid July. It lost the ability to process payments via credit card.

It’s solution appears to be to rebrand as UPLOADTO.US and change it’s company name, however despite these cosmetic changes the site essentially remains the same.

All links to UltraMegaBit.com redirect to UPLOADTO.US. The site is still hosted by Choopa on the same IP block as before the change.

Below is how the site looked before the change.

and below is how the site looks now.

UPLOADTO US

Rudy Corella still owns the UltraMegaBit domain and the new domain is owned by Mitosis Media Inc.

Hoanvinh Nguyenphouc is believed to be behind the Mitosis Media Inc entity.

In May 2008 Rudy Corella and his co-accused Hoanvinh Nguyenphouc were dealt with by way of civil penalty in the State of Washington for the NJC Software Scam.
