Scammers Take Over New EZTV Domain Name
#1
[Image: eztv-logo-small1.png]EZTV, the go-to place for many torrenting TV fans, has suffered its fair share of troubles in recent months.

In January the group lost its .it domain name, which was then taken over by impostors in March.

The torrent distribution group meanwhile continued to operate from the new EZTV.ch domain name, but during the past few hours this new home also became compromised.

Instead of hosting official EZTV torrents the .CH domain now links to the same content as the ‘hijacked’ EZTV.it site. While there are plenty of TV-torrents available, these are sourced externally from RARBG.

And there are more signs pointing to a hostile takeover. Users are not able to login for example, and the scam warning that was previously listed on the .ch domain in gone as well. In addition the site now serves various ads including popunders.

TF reached out to ETZV’s Novaking to find out more about the apparent takeover, but we have yet to receive a reply.

Upon close inspection it appears that the domain name was taken over at the registrar level. The WHOIS information was updated and now lists the UK-based “EZCLOUD LIMITED” as owner, which is the same company that registered the .it domain.

Novaking informed TF a few weeks ago that the same happened to one of his other domains.

The scammers who’ve taken over EZTV are looking to cash in from the site. EZCLOUD director Hernandez Dominguez Emmanuel previously said that he offered to partner with EZTV or sell the domain for a profit.

“The business proposal to Novaking was straightforward: he pays us a slightly bigger amount than we have paid at the auction or we somehow partnership by uniting both entities: eztv.it and eztv.ch and we will earn in the course of the next months by percentage of the ads revenues,” Emmanuel told TF.

Novaking rejected this proposal and blocked the .it domain from using official EZTV torrents. EZCLOUD did not give up, however, and now appears to have taken complete control of ETZV’s new domain as well.
