    PRQ Police Raid Takes Down Dozens of File-Sharing Sites

    Police have raided the Swedish hosting company PRQ today, possibly looking for servers connected to copyright infringement. PRQ was founded by Pirate Bay co-founders Gottfrid Svartholm and Fredrik Neij and is known to host or route many file-sharing sites. The target of the raid has not been confirmed by the authorities, but The Pirate Bay team informs TorrentFreak that they are no longer using PRQ’s services.

    A raid against Swedish hosting company PRQ has been confirmed today. Due to the action by police many file-sharing and streaming sites are now down or inaccessible.

    All sites hosted on the 80.88./19 net are currently unavailable, (...)

    Private BitTorrent sites that use PRQ’s services are also affected. They include GFTracker and Bithumen, to name just two.
    (Emphasis added)

    BTN, BitHQ and Filelist.ro are using PRQ, for those who wonder what happened to them.

    Most of the sites are up again. Torrent Damage is reporting data loss.

    ThePirateBay is down, do You think that because of this?
    It's almost sure but I heard that They use a lot of hosting servers and have a lot of backups.

    They weren't in PRQ to my knowledge. Anyway, the site works for me.
