File Reactor was a popular site amongst uploaders, unfortunately all good (bad) things must come to an end and it appears that File Reactor is no more.
We are pleased that the site has now been offline for around 24 hours and they have been having difficulty paying uploaders and affiliates for weeks.
File Reactor had premium memberships payable by Paypal, unfortunately that source of payment became a problem for them
Read on to find out more about File Reactor.
File Reactor offered premium memberships to download files. You can see their payment rates and Paypal logos clearly in the screenshot above.
File Reactor offers uploaders up to $22 per 1000 downloads and affiliate payments on premium memberships. The offer was widely promoted on forums such as in the screenshot above.
A search of a popular file host search site revealed that File Reactor hosted many full site rips and illegally shared pornography, they also had file names that suggested they hosted child exploitation material.
If it was software that was more your cup of tea, then File Reactor had copious amounts of pirate software, a search for “Adobe” revealed many cracked, copied, pirated versions of Adobe software as well as stolen copies of Adobe instructional books.
For the moment File Reactor is gone, their website does not load and uploaders are now complaining about lack of payment and inability to work with the site. We will be working closely with payment processors to ensure that if the site does re-appear that we can shut off it’s supply of funding quickly and cause the site to fail again.
We will work hard to shut down any file sharing site which encourages or even permits illegal file sharing.
