As you may know Torrentz.eu quit their operation without stating any reason — Good news is that its clone Torrentz2.eu is already up and running.
Torrentz.eu, one of the Internet’s largest torrent meta-search engine shut down its operation on August 5, 2016, without stating any reason but the good news is that its mirror or clone, in other words, has surfaced online with a Torrentz2.eu domain carrying on with the legacy of the original platform.
The Torrentz2.eu domain seems to offer the same services like theTorrentz.eu yet it is unclear if the party behind the current clone has access to the original database and or the original database is being used on the new one.
Users visiting the clone can see a message clearly stating Torrentz2.eu is a clone of Torrentz.
”Torrentz2.eu is a clone of Torrentz, a free, fast and powerful meta-search engine combining results from dozens of search engines Indexing 59,642,496 torrents from 124,468,859 pages We will always love you Torrentz. Goodbye,” according to the message on Torrentz2.eu’s homepage.
There has been no official statement from anyone about the ownership of this clone domain nor have there been any signs of its previous existence unlike Kickass Torrents domain whose owner Artem Vaulin was arrested and domain was forced to go offline yet, another team calling itself KAT crew contacted us and other media platforms upon officially launching Kickass Torrents mirrors days after the incident. Remember, Vaulin was tracked all the way back to Poland with the help of an IP address and iTunes purchase.
We got in touch with Ernesto, one of the experts from TorrentFreak and asked for their views on this clone, as expected they were straight forward and stated that: “There is no Torrentz ‘clone’ with the official database and there will never be one. There are a lot of sites that use the Torrentz name, but those have nothing to do with the original site.”
Ernesto also highlighted the fact that whenever a torrent domain is taken down scammers take advantage of such situation and come up with malicious clones. So in case you plan to use aforementioned clone do it at your own we at HackRead are not responsible.
