Keep2Share, FileBoom & MoneyPlatform Network Details

This post will look closely at the network of sites that engage in extensive piracy and the sharing of illegal content. This network is comprised of Keep2Share.cc (also known as k2s.cc), FileBoom.me (also known as fboom.me) and MoneyPlatform.biz.

Keep2Share and FileBoom are file lockers. Users are paid based on the number of downloads their uploads receive. This is a huge incentive to upload copyright infringing and illegal content. The affiliate program for both sites is run through a website called MoneyPlatform.biz

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.

UltraMegaBit & Rudy Corella – Selling Pirated Porn

Rudy Corella, recently fined by the State of Washington for misleading and deceptive practices, is still at it.

He continues to profit from copyright infringing content, selling access to pirated porn from his UltraMegaBit file locker service.

Obviously his credit card processing falls into the high risk category, so we’ll be doing what we can to bring this issue to the attention of his bank and his credit card processor and acquirer.

We’ve detected thousands of instances of copyright infringing pornographic material being distributed on UltraMegaBit.

Netload.in is in liquidation.

Netload recently lost access to Paypal again and it now seems the company which owns Netload is now in liquidation.

Netload liquidation

It is possible this is the beginning of the end for Netload, or it could be that the owners will relocate ownership of the site to another jurisdiction.

While the company is in liquidation assets can be sold off and unsecured creditors, including uploaders may lose their money owed by the company.

Uploaded. One year on and nothing has changed.

It’s been over a year since we published information about Uploaded, however in that year we have been quietly working to make things more difficult for this notorious cyberlocker.

Uploaded is loaded with copyright infringing content. It’s whole business model is based on the premise that there will be more uploads of copyright infringing content than DMCA notices issued to remove that content. It’s a giant game of risk and Uploaded do not care about limiting copyright infringement, they only need to make sure that as much content remains online as possible.

Uploaded1

Uploaded.net use the company Cyando AG at Hauptstrasse 24, 8832 Wollerau, Switzerland as their front of operations. Protected by a shielding corporate structure they continue to operate with complete disregard of all laws pertaining to intellectual property.

Uploaded.net also distributes child exploitation content and bestiality content from it’s servers and seems to do very little to combat it. Most observers looking at Uploaded’s website would make the assumption that this is a reputable provider of cloud services, however the truth is they simply pay uploaders to upload copyright infringing content.
