Massive p2p raids in Hungary, 100 servers down

A sad news came from Hungary, a country which seemed to be a very secure place in terms of peer to peer networks and filesharing. Hungarian police raided and confiscated over 100 servers, including scene top sites, private bittorrent trackers and warez forums. Affected sites include the biggest and most popular hungarian tracker bitHumen (30 000 registered users), release site nCore (which is already up though), trackers Bitlove, Independent, Moobs, Revolution and many other private FTP sites which had a connection with the scene.

The raid took place on November 9 between 11 A.M. and 3 P.M. in Budapest, Hungary. The sources write about 80 individuals from both police and special anti p2p organizations involved. The confiscated servers were hosted by various internet server providers (GTS-Datanet, Deninet, CFM, Giganet), so this was a highly organized and prepared raid. BitHumen temporary site informs its members that there were no IP addresses stored at the server, so they don’t have to worry about possible consequences from their membership.

The seizure of so many servers which were connected mostly by 100 Mbit lines caused an interesting effect in the Hungarian peering center (BIX): the overall country traffic went from 60 Gbit/s to 35-40 Gbits after the raid.
