Stockholm based PeRiQuito AB (in short PRQ) is a Swedish Internet service provider. It is the web hosting company of many popular outlaw sites on the Internet, including WikiLeaks, the North America Man-Boy Love Association, Pedophile.se, Pirate Bay and the Chechen rebel site Kavkaz Central. However, this web hosting company has already been raided twice earlier. One was in 2006 and the later was in 2010. And the latest news of PeRiQuito AB is it has been raided again on Monday (October 1) by Swedish Police and the police took four of its servers.


PRQ Owner Mikael Viborg

Due to this sudden raid and taking down four servers, the websites of Sweden’s protection and preparedness agency, MSB, the banks SEB, Swedbank and Nordnet, the Swedish Armed Forces and the national news bureau, TT, were disrupted from Monday morning. TT was the first site that felled in the attacks, remained offline throughout the day. On the other side, the Swedish Armed Force’s website and affected banks were offline for about one hour each. A number of torrent sites are still offline after Monday’s raid.

According to TorrentFreak, the file-sharing site Pirate Bay was coincidentally down because of a power outage. The Pirate Bay said, “We have not been raided. We are not shutting down. We like turtles, waffles, and you.”

However, it’s unclear that why Swedish police raided PRQ all on a sudden, but according to TorrentFreak, PRQ owner Mikael Viborg told the Swedish news site Nyheter24 that he believes the raid had to do with intellectual property violations. Viborg also said that he wasn’t sure which sites the authorities were after.

Viborg told Nyheter24, “Yes, they’re looking for four servers. It is the first time since 2010 they have done this. PRQ is known to host the things that no one else wants to host, and not ask any questions. It can be any of those that are targeted. Until we get more details about the servers, I will not speculate on it.”

National Police IT crime officer Anders Ahlqvist told media that he was “confident”, sympathisers with Australian WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange was behind the sudden raid.
