Piratebay sails back to Sweden

And raises finger at Motion Picture Ass. of America

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Swedish BitTorrent site Piratebay has moved home after a brief sojourn in the Netherlands.

And it is sending a subtle message in its reverse DNS which reads: "hey.mpaa.and.apb.bite.my.shiny.metal.ass.thepiratebay.org.". Which almost sounds like a quote from Bender, the Futurama robot.

The Piratebay moved to the Netherlands after the raid. But according to their blog they missed Sweden too much and had to return. The site says it wants to spread the website over several different locations worldwide to make it harder to take down.

The people behind the site apologised for problems and delays in fixing them. They said: "The aim is always to make this beast the biggest, strongest, and coolest site for filesharing in the world!"

In May, Swedish police raided 10 locations and seized Piratebay computers. Piratebay is threatening to sue police if the site is ruled legal. The raid gave Piratebay so much publicity that visitor numbers nearly doubled for a while
