Megaupload now serving Porn & Junk Ads

Megaupload, a file sharing site that was seized by the Department of Justice in an online privacy investigation four years ago is now providing pornographic content and junk ads, The website which is still under the control of the FBI, previously only displayed a banner informing visitors that the domain was seized on its web pages.

According to the TorrentFreak article, the FBI last year failed to renew ownership of “Cirfu.net,” an expired domain name assigned to a nameserver where Megaupload.com visitors were being redirected. The domain’s new owner then used Megaupload.com to deliver malware. U.S. authorities “fixed this by removing the nameservers altogether, but it turns out that they didn’t do this for all seized domains,” the report explains. Once again Cirfu.net expired, allowing the latest owner to apparently abuse more Megaupload domains.
