FileRose has a nice name but it doesn’t smell anything like a rose, in fact it smells like ……
FileRose is an example of an illegal file locker site that has happily set up it’s site with no regard for the intellectual property of others. As such there is a load of pirate software, videos, games, movies and more to download from this site. Unfortunately there is a considerable amount of extreme and sickening child pornography hosted by FileRose.
UPDATE: 6th July 2012 FileRose have had their Paypal accounts terminated. All funds have been frozen for 180 days and in that time they cannot withdraw or transfer funds. They may no longer process any payments through Paypal.
UPDATE: 8th July 2012 FileRose started accepting Paypal again by replacing their old terminated Paypal account with a new one. This has also now been terminated. All funds have been frozen for 180 days and in that time they cannot withdraw or transfer funds. They may no longer process any payments through Paypal. Every time a file locker replaces their old payment method with a new one we will work to shut it down.
UPDATE: 8th July 2012 FileRose have added LiqPay as a payment option. We will be working with Visa and Mastercard to have this merchant relationship terminated.
UPDATE: 9th July 2012 FileRose have resumed using Paypal. We have reported this to Paypal and are hoping for a quick resolution.

FileRose offers uploaders generous incentives to upload popular content to it’s file locker site. Below is a screenshot from a popular forum detailing their offer to entice illicit uploads.
In order to make money, the site offers premium memberships via Paypal in order to provide users with unrestricted and high speed downloads.
The incentives offered to uploaders seem to work as we have found many examples of pirate software made available on the site.
There’s more than you could ever download.
Sickeningly searching Google reveals links to many files hosted by Filerose which purport to be extreme child pornography. Downloading (or uploading) child pornography is illegal and you could be jailed for doing so.
We are working to have all payment processing for FileRose terminated and we also call upon the US Department of Justice to seize the domain name and relevant policing authorities to arrest and charge the operator of FileRose with child exploitation offences.
