    Dear registered user of the site,

    We have recently been investigating the activities of the users of the
    site and we have found that this site exists for the
    sole purpose of music piracy.

    Pirating music is a criminal offence and we believe it should be obvious
    to you that the results outweigh the benefits - hard working artists
    won't be rewarded for their work and will stop producing music,
    ultimately leading to a severely reduced selection of music both in the
    shops and for download.

    The RIAA had hoped that the disabling by the police of the large illegal
    music site,, would stop a lot of people from engaging in piracy,
    as they don't want to be seen as criminals. However, this appears to
    not be the case, as two large new sites have sprung up in its place.

    This email is the final warning to all of you who were members of and are current members of If we find you to be
    committing any more criminal acts of piracy then we will have to press
    charges against you, as representatives of the major record companies of

    Yours Faithfully,

    The RIAA

    WTF is this crap?

    I hate the RIAA so much. The sheer hypocricy of pretending to represent 'the artists' is galling. They represent corporate douchebags and nothing more, rich people who don't feel rich enough. I refuse to by CD's, I support artists by going to their shows and buying their merch.

    Tell them you wish them luck in prosecuting you. They have no chance.

    From the What.CD website:

    Edit by DAQ: These fake RIAA Emails are just that. Fake. Read that.

    This week has been terrible. After we did two code audits and fixed our security issues, our wonderful attackers couldn't get in (yay!), so they turned to brute force. After having been hit by several port scans and a rather fearsome DDoS attack (traffic reaching almost 80 megabits per second (note: that's 10 megabytes per second)) our server pretty much went to hell. After an extended downtime (ending a couple hours ago) during which we tweaked firewall settings, etc., we decided that it was safe enough to bring the site back up.

    Pretty much immediately after the site came back up we had someone trying to brute force our (well passworded) ssh accounts (they've now met the hot burny side of the firewall).

    What have we learned from all this? That there is a person or a group of people somewhere that wants us to disappear. We originally thought that the attacks were by bored kids, but whoever was behind the DDoS appears to be much more serious than that. We aren't going to publicly speculate on who is behind the attacks - we'll leave that to you guys.

    Despite these attacks, we are still up and running, and we hope to stay this way for a very long time. We have plans for this site, and we aren't going to flush them down the drain just because some people don't like what we're doing. The first of our plans involves a very cool freeleech plan, but we're going to wait until we're sure the tracker's relatively stable for that. For the time being, we're keeping freeleech on until further notice.
