Revision3 Podcast Network Hacked, Attacked By MediaDefender

May 29th, 2008 | By | Category: Digital Video Recorder, Featured Story, General, Internet TV, Podcast Distribution, Video

Jim Louderback, CEO of podcasting/new media network Revision3, has an explanation for why his site died over Memorial Day weekend: they were hacked and attacked by MediaDefender, a company that works for the music and film industries doing anti-piracy work.

“Media Defender was abusing one of Revision3’s servers for their own purposes, without our approval,” says Louderback. “They willingly admitted to abusing Revision3’s network, over a period of months, by injecting a broad array of torrents into our tracking server.”
