Beware, popular KickassTorrents mirror is a scam

Popular mirror of KickassTorrents, is a scam, stay away from it

Soon after the arrest of KickassTorrents alleged founder and the seizure of all KickassTorrents domains, many torrent websites sprang up to fill the popular KickassTorrents niche. The business opportunity for filling the KickassTorrents void was huge as its main domain enjoyed unprecedented popularity and was numero uno in terms of popularity among the torrenting community.

Once such website was a KickassTorrents mirror having a domain The people behind were among the first to claim that they were a replacement for the dead and buried Even though it misleadingly claimed to have a copy of KAT’s database, the torrent community, and world media made popular.

However, the MPAA moved against the domain and had it suspended for featuring pirated content. After being under suspension for a week or so, now the site is back again but in a scammy avatar. After a brief suspension, the registry re-released the domain name for registration, allowing scammers to pick it up. While the site still appears to be a mirror, it asks people to sign up for an account with a credit card if they want to download something.

If you are a torrents fan and visit the website now you will be greeted by the familiar KickassTorrents like user interface. The real fun or scam will begin once you try to download any torrent. Users who try to download something will be prompted to register a ‘free’ account.

“Free Account Required. You must create a Free Account to access KickassTorrents,” the popup notification reads.

The signup page redirects to a scammy portal, and requires people to enter their credit card details if they want a free trial.

Do remember that the new avatar of is a scam and has nothing to do with the original KickassTorrents site, and has all the signs of a classic pay to download scam.
