One of the most popular Bitttorrent  tracker site was shut down by Ukrainian authorities on August 6,2012 from the Ukraine's largest data center ColoCall after 9 years of its operation (launched in 2003).

Ukrainian officials did that to show that they are taking U.S intellectual property rights very seriously.According to sources server was taken down by massive distributed denial of service(DDoS) attack.
In last few days site was inaccessible and was redirecting to some random sites.You might have noticed following error message:
