Staff members of KickassTorrents have relaunched the torrent section of the site at Katcr.co, TorrentFreak reported.
The relaunch comes after the alleged founder of KickassTorrents, Artem Vaulin, was arrested in Poland.
Vaulin is fighting extradition to the US to face charges of copyright infringement and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
Following his arrest, the site was shut down.
Staff members then launched a forum at Katcr.co to provide a new home for KickassTorrents and said they were working on restoring the torrent functionality of the site.
Since the torrent search engine of KickassTorrents was relaunched, the site has come under attack.
Staff told TorrentFreak the “enthusiasm of returning users” had caused an influx of traffic, but a notice posted on the site states it has been attacked.
Servers load have been affected, there are other few sources of this issue, it’s not just one.
We are working on fix this as soon as possible .. one thing is for sure, we are not going anywhere, even as much these behind this acts want us to.
Cowards always choose the shadows to commit their acts, and I do personally hope they know how to pray, they will need it.
