Popular TV-torrent distribution group EZTV is in trouble again. The site's new eztv.ch domain name has fallen into the hands of 'scammers' who are trying to cash in through various ads. 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 â€˜hijackedâ€™ 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 ETZVâ€™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 â€œEZCLOUD LIMITEDâ€ as owner, which is the same company that registered the .it domain. The scammers whoâ€™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. â€œThe 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,â€ 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 ETZVâ€™s new domain as well. â€” Breaking news, more updates may follow https://torrentfreak.com/scammers-take-over-new-eztv-domain-name-150425/
The popular TV-torrent site EZTV has suffered several days of downtime over the past week, and the trouble doesn't stop there. The site's former .it domain name has been taken over by "scammers," causing all sorts of trouble for unsuspecting users. Earlier this year EZTV ran into trouble with the Italian domain name registry NIC.it over some paperwork. Facing a looming confiscation of the EZTV.it domain name, they saw no other option than to switch to a new home. Since then the site has been serving its torrents from the EZTV.ch domain. Perhaps out of habit or because they donâ€™t know any better, many users still visit the EZTV.it domain. For a few weeks the .IT domain was banned by the registry so visitors eventually had to find EZTVâ€™s new home. This week the position changed. Starting a few days ago the .IT domain became accessible again, showing what appears to be the real EZTV website. However, this surprise comeback is far from official. TorrentFreak has learned that a domain squatter took over the popular name after the registry surprisingly listed it for sale again. In the domain whois EZTVâ€™s â€œEZCLOUD LIMITEDâ€ is listed as the registrant, but EZTVâ€™s Novaking told TF that they are not in control of the domain. â€œScammers got it a while ago,â€ Novaking tells TF. â€œOddly this happened through a domain snapback company in Italy.â€ What makes the situation particularly problematic is that the official ETZV domain has been suffering downtime for more than a week. This means that the .IT domain is being visited even more than before, especially because it even lists recent torrents. While there are no signs of malicious practices yet, some users noted worrying problems with the â€œcompromisedâ€ .IT domain. For example, the login doesnâ€™t work and people are randomly logged into other peopleâ€™s accounts. As a result, strangers can read peopleâ€™s private messages and access their personalized show lists. Many users have spotted the problems and report their experiences in the forums on the compromised site. â€œIdentity crisis here too. Iâ€™m ganen89, pedralbes, KathyCuty and some other random people. When i go to â€˜list my showsâ€™ it is a totally different list of series. On the â€˜Show watchedâ€™ [thereâ€™s a] totally different list,â€ one user reports. For now itâ€™s unclear how this can occur. Itâ€™s unlikely that the database has been hacked as the .IT domain still points to a server owned by the real EZTV. In any case, users are being warned to avoid the compromised domain at all costs. The official EZTV team is still working on resolving the problems at their end and hope to have the official site running smoothly again in the near future. https://torrentfreak.com/eztv-it-domain-compromised-by-scammers-150313/
The scammers trick people into paying â€œsupportâ€ charges by running a fake site that offers antivirus downloads intentionally failing on installation and telling the user to call the scammers. The fake â€œtech supportâ€ convince victims that their machines have a virus infection, install the software and charge annual fees. This kind of scam has already cost victims millions dollars around the world. The security company Malwarebytes discovered the new version of the scam. The experts have reported several websites and informed LogMeIn, a legitimate remote support tool used by the scammers, of the codes used so they can be blocked. Indeed, there are too many fraudulent companies today, which are overly aggressive in reaching out to people by any means. In this business environment, the companies that have started an honest business can realize how easy it is to earn millions using deceptive practices. This canâ€™t be good news for people who are looking for support. Most of the scammers work from Kolkata in India and use phone directories to cold-call people and convince them they are â€œfrom Microsoftâ€ and that their computer has been reported as transmitting viruses. The victims are told they have errors in the system but can solve the problem for up to hundreds of dollars. They use remote support tool to obtain remote access to the system, and help people to â€œfixâ€ the nonexistent problem. 4 years ago it was exposed how such â€œsupport scamsâ€ were being run from India. The UK newspaper the Guardian obtained details of 3 people from India and Canada, who allegedly were the leaders of the scam. They were believed to use an online payment company for routing their payments from victims. The newspaper passed all information it collected to police. Two years later, the FTC froze the American bank accounts and assets of some scammers in India under the allegation that thousands of Americans have been tricked into paying for the fake support. Apparently, this move was not enough to stop gangs in India from scamming victims. As you understand, older people normally are unaware that Microsoft doesnâ€™t make such calls. While the authorities do know that there are many scammers in India and the United States, it is hard to get an exact picture of interconnections between them. Part of the problem is that these groups use multiple identities, sites and phone numbers. As for the abovementioned antivirus scam, it was located in India, but the callers spoke perfect English language, in fact sounding like British. The investigators had to pick upon tiny details which could help to identify various accents and put people involved in the scam on a map â€“ the hint was that accents vary per region in India. Taking into account that an average support call center receives 3,000 calls a day, and the price for support services is $200-400, these operations turn into a multimillion dollar industry that is being exploited by the scammers every single day. http://extratorrent.cc/article/3856/â€œtech+supportâ€+scammers+receive+3+000+calls+a+day.html
