Violent DDoS attacks ensure that which is currently often unavailable for hours with many popular “Queen of Music Warez”.

CannaPower has been fighting heavy DDoS attacks for days. Especially in the evening hours, the attacks are so fierce that the “Queen of Music Warez”, popular with many, is often unreachable for hours. Now it turns out that behind the DDoS attacks is a mean blackmail attempt.

A “devil lawyer” and a Blackmail attempt against CannaPower

It’s been five days now. Last Wednesday evening, CannaPower was suddenly no longer available. Is it because of the servers, or has a hard drive “burned out” again? It didn’t take long and it was clear. The much loved “Queen of Music Warez” is under attack.

Also that the “income” is just enough, to keep the servers and infrastructure running is no big secret in the scene and among the users.

However, it must also be said that extortion attacks against apparently well-performing websites are unfortunately no longer a rarity. Reddington from RedWareZ also confirms this when asked.

At RedWareZ they try again and again but fail regularly. 😀


Giving in to a mean blackmail attempt can’t be the right path. The “Queen of Music Warez” sees it similarly: “ Firstly on principle and secondly because we simply didn’t have the money to invest in such a to engage in blackmail
