Owner of web’s biggest illegal film site nabbed after (legal) Purchase on iTunes purchase
The internet just lost its most prolific source of illegal movies after its founder was nabbed after buying something legally, on iTunes.

KickassTorrents (KAT), a torrent website that has surpassed The Pirate Bay as the place to go for unofficial copies of movies and TV shows, appears to be in jeopardy today. TorrentFreak reports that Artem Vaulin, a 30-year-old from Ukraine who allegedly runs the site, was arrested in Poland.

The U.S. government has applied for his extradition after he was located after using the same IP address to make a purchase, presumably legally, on iTunes and then log into the KAT Facebook page.

Vaulin has been charged with conspiracy to commit criminal copyright infringement, conspiracy to commit money laundering and two counts of criminal copyright infringement. The attorney general suggested in a statement that KAT had “stole[n] more than $1 billion in profits from the U.S. entertainment industry.”

The website itself appears to be down right now, and, with Vaulin’s case pending, it is hard to see it resurfacing. Interestingly, TorrentFreak said that as part of its investigation into KAT, U.S. authorities had posed as an advertiser to the site, which helped get Vaulin’s bank details. In another critical part of its efforts, Apple provided authorities Vaulin’s personal details following that iTunes purchase, according to court documents.

“In an effort to evade law enforcement, Vaulin allegedly relied on servers located in countries around the world and moved his domains due to repeated seizures and civil lawsuits. His arrest in Poland, however, demonstrates again that cybercriminals can run, but they cannot hide from justice,” Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell said in a statement that you can only really describe as triumphant.

(Ok, not such a fine day if you were a KAT user.)

Nokia 7 Plus Sold Out In 5 Minutes In China

Nokia 7 Plus Sold Out In 5 Minutes In China

The first batch of Nokia 7 Plus  releases in China has reportedly sold out in 5 minutes. Can I imagine ?

As soon as the virtual shop doors opened at 10:07am, it took only 5 minutes for all available units of the new Nokia phone to be sold out.

The phone sold for CNY 2,300 for the 4GB/64GB version and CNY 2,500 for the 6GB/64GB version (that’s €239 and €318 respectively).

There will be another batch available in about a week – on March 15 at 10:07am. Chances are that the new batch will be gone just as quickly. Of course, neither HMD nor the stores will say how many phones are in a batch.

As for people not in China, we’ll have to wait until April. The Nokia 7 plus is set to cost €400 in Europe (and it doesn’t look like the Old Continent will get the 6GB RAM version).

BMW Recalls 11,700 Cars over Wrong Engine Management Software

BMW Recalls 11,700 Cars over Wrong  Engine Management Software

BMW Recalls 11,700 Cars over Wrong Engine Management Software

BMW has announced the recall of over 11,700 cars last Friday after it discovered an issue with the engine management software.

The German auto brand are recalling the cars because a wrong engine management software had been installed on its luxury 5- and 7-Series models. The statement read;

“In the course of internal tests, they discovered that a correctly developed software update was mistakenly assigned to certain unsuitable model-versions”.

BMW issued the statement after a report suggested it had installed software that manipulated emissions of harmful gases such as nitrogen oxide, something its management has always denied.

Years ago Volkswagen was hugely penalized and also reached a multi-billion-dollar U.S. settlement after admitting installing so-called “defeat devices” on its diesel models designed to game emissions tests.

The Dieselgate” emissions scandal has forced VW to set aside 25.8 billion euros ($31.7 billion) to cover fines and related costs, of which it has paid out nearly 20 billion euros.

The models affected were 5- and 7-Series cars made between 2012 and 2017 containing high-performance diesel engines and three turbo chargers.

BMW said the offending software was mistakenly loaded into cars with a different system for removing harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) from the exhaust than originally intended.

“Corrected software will be made available for these vehicles after approval by the relevant authorities”.
