The most popular KickassTorrents mirror is not a mirror at all. At least, not one that lists torrents from the defunct KAT site. Instead, it’s merely serving content from the Pirate Bay, misleading visitors with a KickassTorrents skin.
It has been just over a day since KickassTorrents (KAT) was shut down by the U.S. Government, following the arrest of the site’s alleged owner. While the official site is still offline mirrors and copies are being launched left and right, with some misleadingly claiming to be an “official” resurrection of KAT.
Yesterday the U.S. Government delivered a massive blow to KickassTorrents. With its alleged founder arrested and pretty much the entire site’s operation compromised, it’s not obvious that there will be a Pirate Bay style comeback anytime soon.
