Black Internet has become the victim of ‘substantial' sabotage.

Following news that Black Internet turned off access to the file-sharing site The Pirate Bay, CEO Victor Möller claimed that it has become the victim of sabotage.

Computerworld reported that Black Internet was hit only a few hours after it complied with the Stockholm district court ruling, with Möller claiming that the sabotage had been intentional.

He refused to elaborate on details of the sabotage or from where it might have originated, but said: “Our network isn't working as it should. We are working with the police and technicians to find out what has happened.”

The disruption has affected all of Black Internet's customers, although parts of the network were up and running on Tuesday morning and more parts were being turned on continually.

Möller said: “It's a giant pyramid and we are dealing with substantial damages and large sums.”
