Sedo Halts Demonoid Domain Name Sale Citing "Legal Issues" 32

hypnosec writes "Demonoid domain names that were put up for sale last week have been de-listed by Sedo because of 'legal issues'. Trouble for Demonoid started sometime during the last week of July when it was rendered inaccessible following DDoS attacks after which it started serving malware laden ads. About four days after these reports, Ukrainian authorities got the best of Demonoid and closed down the site entirely by raiding the hosting service provider of the site. Sedo has said that no third-party or law enforcement agency has ordered the de-listing of the domain names."

    Exactly. There was a RAID... and then there wasn't!

    Just had to say that. :)

    Anyway, Demonoid has bounced back so many times in the past it just doesn't seem right to think that it might finally be gone for good. Guess we will have to just wait and see.
