Thread: Newsleechers Website Suspended

  1. #1
    Many people will be aware by now that newsleechers website has been suspended. This in turn has had a knockon effect that all registered versions of newsleecher have become de-registered due to "call home" from the software.

    Well it appears we have some news about this. Pooch pointed a link on our forums to www2.b-one.net where newsleecher currently had their server. Apparantly they are not happy about the fact that newsleecher is so popular its generates a fair bit of bandwith and have thus suspended their account on grounds of point 1.1 in their terms and conditions.

    1.1. Use
    Subscribers are not permitted to store large amounts of data on the server for free download or reading without prior agreement with B-one. The purpose is not to function as an external hard drive for the storage of data in formats such as zip, rar, avi, wmv, MP3, swf, exe, etc., but as a presentation/sales space for companies and private individuals.
    So newsleecher isnt out. Its not dead. Its just homeless for the time being .. Heres hoping they get it sorted soon ...

    Haven't opened newsleecher in the last couple of days so I haven't noticed anything really.
    Thanks for the heads up though.

    But I do hope they get it sorted soon as well.

    I actually payed for this app,so I would be really pissed off if they'd just vanished

    It's a very good app but a bit overprized though.
    Bought it because I couldn't find a decent crack for it anywhere.
    It's got some good protection so it's a real tuff nut.

    2 days later,in a.b.w.ibm-pc.0-day....Blammo!!!.....there it was
    I think I still got it somewhere,so if anyone wants it I'll post it again.

    there is a way to get around this:

    uninstall completely, clean the registry.
    Install the app, and enter your serial when it asks.
    then add 0.0.0.0 www.newsleecher.com to your hosts file: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

    then it wont call home

    edit: this is in no way a method to hack or crack, it will only work with a valid serial that you bought - remember kids, guns dont kill people, hackers do

    Nighhawk_junior reported the following :-
    Newsleecher.com is back up and the keys are working again as is supersearch. Phew panic is over

    One thing though i had to request a new key as my previous one had expired. So if you are having difficulties then go to their site and request a new key and apply that. Nice to see him back up and running. The forums are currently still down however and there is no reports from simon ...
    Still seems down though...

    Dear NewsLeecher User

    As you, without doubt, already know, NewsLeecher.com is down at the
    moment due to some problems with the company which is hosting the site. We are currently moving the NewsLeecher.com domain to our own server to get the hosting problems solved ASAP.

    Some users have also experienced their purchased NewsLeecher keys
    resetting to trial mode because of the server problems. This is due to a bug in NewsLeecher, as the program isn't meant to be dependent on the NewsLeecher server to work in 'registered' mode. The bug will be fixed in the next release. We apologize for the inconvenience this might cause.

    A note to all Super Search customers:
    NewsLeecher Super Search is still in beta test mode, and as long as it
    is in beta, it it free. So even though you have paid for the Super Search service long ago, your 1 year subscription period hasn't started yet. Super Search will probably stay in beta for at least the next 2 weeks
    Im slightly confused about them even talking about Super Search while the site is down as I thought thats why it wasnt working. Has anyone even been able to use it since the site went down at all...
