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: Offline and unlikely to return

From early July we began to target FileOM and it’s payment processing arrangements. We explored the site’s piracy of more than a million webcam videos – with over 18,000 videos shared from just one site – and then once the site lost it’s credit card processing in August we wrote about the failed attempt by Xerver to buy the site.

Now more than a month since all forms of payment processing were terminated the site is offline. FileOM may be simply restructuring under new hosting arrangements but we currently believe that they have failed to pay their hosting fees. Currently all servers used by the site are unreachable.

FileOM  Easy way to share your files

Time will tell if FileOM is able to be recovered, however forums and blogs are already removing links to files on the site.

Yonzy: All Payment Processing Terminated

Recently we discussed a new file locker called Yonzy. This site hosted copyright infringing content and was owned by IMGAH.COM owner Jesse Grandbois.

The site now has no forms of payment processing as both Payza and Skrill have intervened to close this merchant’s accounts.

We’ll keep a close eye on this site and act quickly if new payment processing methods are added.

FileInz – A File Locker in Trouble

FileInz.com came into being during the middle of this year. It’s one of dozens of file lockers who promote their service to pirates on the home of piracy webmasters and thieves, WJunction.

Fileinz  The best way to share your files

Like most file lockers, FileInz pays uploaders based on the number of downloads they receive.

Since launching there has been an exponential growth in the number of links to FileInz from piracy source domains, such as piracy forums, blogs, link lists, link dumps and file search engines.

Yonzy. New file locker linked to Imgah.com

Yonzy is a new file locker which launched just a few days ago. The file locker has announced it’s presence to the pirates and thieves on WJunction.

Yonzy wjunction offer

Like most file lockers we have investigated, Yonzy offers paid rewards to uploaders of content. They pay uploaders a commission upon a signup to the file locker and also pay up to $13.00 per 1000 downloads that a file receives.

What we have found is that the image hosting site Imgah.com now redirects to Yonzy.com
