This one's just a bit strange. TorrentFreak alerts us to the news of an Indian company called AiPlex, which (according to its website) seems to do a bit of medical transcription, a bit of SEO and... just for fun, a bit of anti-piracy work. Apparently AiPlex's CEO explains that one of their anti-piracy methods is to hit non-cooperative sites with a denial of service attack
"In such cases, we flood the website with requests, which results in database error, causing denial of service as each server has a fixed bandwidth capacity," Kumar reveals. And it doesn't stop there.
"At times, we have to go an extra mile and attack the site and destroy the data to stop the movie from circulating further," he adds.
TorrentFreak also notes that this firm seems a bit confused over how BitTorrent works, in that it lists "Bram Cohen" as a type of BitTorrent client, which I'm sure amuses Bram). Watch out, Bram, or a medical transcription SEO company might try to flood you with requests, resulting in a database error.
