With the recent shutdown of ExtraTorrent and many other long-running names in the torrenting community, a volatile landscape has emerged making it difficult to tell who is actually official.
The reality is, when a large torrent site suddenly disappears, opportunists try and quickly fill in the gaps with look-a-like clone websites. If you are on the lookout for new torrent sites to use, it is important to note that there has been a huge influx in fake and malicious clone sites popping up.
These sites often look identical to the real one but feature things like a fraction of the content, malicious ads, malware and credit card scams.
The shutdown of ExtraTorrent is the perfect example.
Although the sites operator’s clearly stated to, ”Stay away from fake ExtraTorrent websites and clones,” many users were confused when a wide range of identical looking ExtraTorrent clones appeared.
