You are probably tired of hearing about trackers being shut down because that’s been happening a lot lately. LeechersLair, a large General/0Day tracker that was featured on FILEnetworks Blog several times, too was forced offline by the Malaysian government due to possible copyright infringement (at the time of shut down, LL was hosted by Shinjiru, a hosted based in Malaysia). However, we learn that this will not be the end of LeechersLair – tracker staff are determined to bring the site back online, even if it meant moving to a host in a different country.
We’ve been getting a lot of E-mails from concerned LL members so thought it was best to post an update on this Blog. Quoted below is what Felix2003 (LL Moderator) told us about the current status of the site:
At the moment the Malaysian government ordered prominent webhosting provider Shinjiru to close down the site LeechersLair.com. to inspect the server for illegal file sharing.
We have taken all action in protecting our members data and the site will be back online in the next day maybe 2 as we are unsure as to how long there investigation will take regardless of the outcome LL will not be shut down and we will be moving servers to a more secure location as Shinjieu can no longer be trusted
At the time it was forced offline, LeechersLair had a user base in excess of 18000 members and tracked over 6000 active torrents. We at FILEnetworks Blog wish LL admins and staff best of luck in their efforts to restore the tracker and the site quickly.
