One to file in Irony Corner as users of a filesharing site are “up in arms” as it was revealed to be a “honeypot” that was collecting data on users, websites and hosters. This all came out when anti-piracy company Nuke Piracy acquired UploaderTalk. “That’s right – the biggest swerve ever,” said UploaderTalk’s mysterious operator – known only as WDF – in a statement on the site. “I, WDF, work for the anti-piracy people!” WDF set up the site last year after previously being involved with WJunction, another filesharing site and boasted of the scam: “I collected info on file hosts, web hosts, websites.
