[Handled] Does WiredTree.com Offer Warez Hosting now?


Wiredtree is known as a managed VPS provider located in the USA. Yes, take into account, USA. The USA clearly states in their law that copyrighted content is not allowed on their servers.

I have complained to Wiredtree's DMCA team about the following site which is hosted on their servers:

http://www.crackingforum.com

This website is clearly in breach of their AUP and i have mentioned it to them many times. The mentioned website which is hosted on their servers clearly shows a "Warez" section which is not allowed on US Servers and provides "Bruteforcing" and "Hacking" tools to their users. The website also shares "Credit Card" information of others which is stolen.

Their AUP clearly states:
Quote:
Illegal Activity or Content

The Service shall not be used for any unlawful activities or in connection with any criminal or civil violation. Use of the Service or Network for transmission, distribution, retrieval, or storage of any information, data or other material in violation of any applicable law or regulation (including, where applicable, any tariff or treaty) is prohibited. This includes, without limitation, the use or transmission of any data or material protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, patent or other intellectual property right without proper authorization and the transmission of any material that constitutes an illegal threat, violates export control laws, or is obscene, defamatory or otherwise unlawful.
The bolded points are what the website on their server clearly breaks. As i result of this abuse i decided to contact WiredTree's DMCA team. On phone they clearly said the site should be taken off their servers and to send an email to the DMCA team so that this can happen.

The sharing of stolen accounts is clearly against USA law.

I also sent them proof of where the website was breaking USA law.

http://www.imgcafe.com/view/uploads/20cracdxd.png

I receive the following reply even after so much proof:

http://www.imgcafe.com/view/uploads/20cracoeo.png

I then send them clear proof, with images to where the website is clearly breaking the law:

http://www.imgcafe.com/view/uploads/20cracxyx.png

I receive this reply:
http://www.imgcafe.com/view/uploads/20cracoyo.png

I have clearly given proof with images and links to various forums where the site was breaking the law. It seems that this datacenter located in the USA takes DMCA complaints lightly and websites which host credit card information, share stolen accounts, warez lightly.

This is not expected from a USA server and "Wiredtree" should reconsider if they themselves are following their AUP.

Kind Regards,

Robert Hemmings

I wasnt aware they allowed Warez Hosting or even Linking i mean Anything Warez/Cracking/Spam/Phinishing/Spoofing related web sites etc..

Are illegal within the boundaries of the usa. those sorts of sites are not even allowed within the neatherlands anymore. Due to the strict copyright break down hopefully Wiredtree will remove them ASAP! To keep up their solid reputation its very odd though how ever how you have contacted them so many times and they just ignore you.

Lets wait to hear from wiredtree :-)

Pretty sure they don't allow such content to be hosted on their servers. When we were with them they had forwarded several DMCAs to us to get taken care of relating to warez or pirated content. Unless they changed their polices which I doubt.

I would understand that they will not remove the website because there have been no dmca complains or complaints by company workers etc that there stolen work is on there.

But the employee at wiredtree saying there does not seem to be illegal content on the site is just crap.
"What proof do you have of the illegality of this"

Just clicking on one link clearly shows the site is a warez site.

Although the fact that they want proper evidence before shutting down a site is good in my eyes.

You could contact the publishers of the software or whatever instead to see if they do something about it.

Thats is true, But then again if the host wont take responsibility for what they already know & have been shown proof of, Then they go off & take responsibility for a few post. Then that wouldnt make them very reputable or respected.

True. They should just do the same with all sites and just remove them. Not keep some and remove one site.

The sites hosted on wiredtree.com servers, unless they offer hosting? The nameservers are ns1.wiredtree.com and ns2.wiredtree.com same as wiredtree.com nameservers.

You can try reporting it to ICANN. The DNS records say he lives in Pokemonville.

OP unless you are involved directly with files/copyright on this website, you CANNOT and have NO RIGHT to submit a DMCA request and can get sued for misrepresentation. In this case it clearly warez but it not your problem isn't?

OP, after looking through your other posts, it seems very suspicious. What is your affiliation with this website anyways?

I wouldn't be surprised if you're a past employee of sorts or own a competing website.

I don't see a bad thing of OP. He saw it and reported it as he is a responsible person.

It is just very suspicious because from his screenshots, it looks like he's had extensive access to said site that normal users do not have access to. Either means he's an active user there, or got the screenshots from someone who is.

Anyways, just saying what I noticed. And plus, I am a bit biased for WiredTree I must admit .
