Piratebay, EZTV, Zoink, & Torrage raided

Quote:
Police in Sweden carried out a raid in Stockholm today, seizing servers, computers, and other equipment. At the same time The Pirate Bay and several other torrent-related sites disappeared offline. Although no official statement has been made, TF sources confirm action against TPB.
http://torrentfreak.com/swedish-poli...ffline-141209/




These guys have been operating nearly non-stop for 11 years, laughing at any initiative to shut the site down. It was even online during the founder's stint in jail. None of the proxies are pointing to a functioning server at this point.

End of TPB? I doubt it, but more trouble is coming for those running the current site.

Why are the proxies not working? I thought they were secure from takedowns.

The proxies are worthless without a working load balancer. If someone is brave enough to host one, the proxies will work again.
