Know More about The Pirate Bay.

The Pirate Bay, a controversial website that is established by Piratbyran in 2003, is a cyber index of various digital contents of entertainment media and applications. You can enjoy a bunch of great resources shared on the website. You are allowed to search, download and share magnet links and torrent files via peer-to-peer networks. The BitTorrent client starts downloading any content you desired when it is opened on the device. You can browse torrents classified by “Video”, “Applications”, “Audio”,”Games”, “Porn” and “Other”. Based on a report about newly uploaded files, most of the content of the website was TV shows and films, which accounts for more than forty three percent; and pornography content ranks second place with a percentage of thirty five percent; the number of audio uploads is relatively small, only about 9%. You can sort the torrents and magnet links by date posted, file name, the number of seeders, and so on.
As we mentioned, The Pirate Bay is a controversial service. It is regarded as a platform that works to help infringe copyright of others. The founders of the service Gottfrid Svartholm, Peter Sunde, and Fredrik Neij were found guilty for assisting in copyright infringement. They served a one year prison sentence and paid a penalty. The website has been blocked by some Internet service providers. In March 2009, Facebook started blocking the links to torrents on TPB. Later, the block expanded. Both private and public messages that contain links of TPB were all blocked no matter what the content is. Facebook officially stated that, according to the users’ agreement on their terms of service, they have the right to stop acts that there is a “demonstrated disregard for intellectual property rights”. Microsoft also took similar actions. In a statement, Microsoft says, “We block instant messages if they contain malicious or spam URLs based on intelligence algorithms, third-party sources, and/or user complaints. Pirate Bay URLs were flagged by one or more of these and were consequently blocked”. The Pirate Bay is also blocked by government in some countries. China is one of these countries. In this article, we are going to discuss a highly effective way of how to access The Pirate Bay in China.

How to Remove “Windows Detected ZEUS virus” Alert?(Removal Guide)

Hey. My computer has been attacked by ZEUS virus. The virus locks my browser and asks me to call a number. I did call, but they asked for $ 700 to remove the virus and I refused. I can’t afford it. Is there any cheaper way to get rid of “Windows Detected ZEUS virus” alert? Please help.

“Windows Detected ZEUS virus” alert is brought by a piece of scareware which is a member of the dangerous viruses’ family.

Pretending to be kind, it urges you to call “Microsoft technicians” for help. In fact, this is a tech support scam. The virus alert is not issued by the Microsoft or any other legit anti-virus program. The real threat is not ZEUS virus but the nasty scareware behind this fake alert. If you called the number like it suggests you, the people who claim to be Microsoft technician would persuade you to buy their software or service. According to victims, they were demanded to pay $ 600 to remove ZEUS virus. Therefore, do not call the number. You need to remove the scareware which brings ZEUS virus alert completely.

How “Windows Detected ZEUS virus” Alert Works?

The scareware is installed to create chaos on your computer. In order to work freely, it disables your antivirus program. The antivirus program will not be able to detect or remove the scam virus.

This virus is able to inject and display advertisements on the web browsers. You will be redirected to the third-party domains. A flood of flashing pop-up windows, banners, in-text links, and auto-play video commercials appear on your screen frequently. However, you need to know that not all the domains and popups are safe. Some of them are malicious. You will be forced to download virus once you click on the suspicious programs. Read the rest of this post »
