A Serious DDoS attack has took down one of the most known BitTorrent trackers. Demonoid has been inaccessible to its millions of users for more than a day and is anticipated to continue to stay offline for quite some time. The tech admin of the troubled BitTorrent tracker made a statment to TorrentFreak that the events at hand are not easy to fix, and proposes that apart from the DDoS there may have been an attack from a different angle.
As you can see in the screenshot above, Demonoid is currently serving up the following error message:

A quote from the Site owner of Demonoid:
“These problems need to be fixed before the site can go back up, and it’s a complicated fix this time. There might have been an attack from another angle, an exploit of sorts, but it’s hard to tell right now without a full check of everything. Our human resources became limited in the last few months. All tech issues are handled just by me now and there is no one else to take the job. I’ll fix the site as soon as possible, but it might be a while this time.”
