Sedo Halts Demonoid Domain Name Sale Citing "Legal Issues"

hypnosec (2231454) 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 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."
