At this time, Oron.com is offline all around the world. This isn't an ISP block nor was Oron.com taken offline by some government (particularly the US Government) - the site Oron.com went down 5 days ago on August 1st, 2012. Because there are a lot of people trying to figure out what happened to Oron, in particular Oron.com download links that people depend on to get the files they want, I wanted to create a supplemental piece to the updated news story to better-reach more people to let them what's going on with Oron.
Oron has been plagued with problems over the years, but especially as of late. They went down back in February for a bit while the Megaupload debacle was still fresh, stories of people trying to take Oron offline were rising and Oron has been hit not only with one massive lawsuit but a second lawsuit two days ago.
Oron.com (still) is a popular cyberlocker, or filehosting and filesharing service despite their yo-yo like tactics that screw with their members on occasion. Being popular, and due to the way they chose to run their business, they've constantly been above the radar with people seeking to have Oron taken offline or at least crippled to the point of uselessness. Well, it seems now that somebody has finally nailed Oron on the alleged copyright infringement taking place through their service. While this is to be expected, it's Oron's response to this lawsuit that could and probably should scare current and future users away from the service for good.
Yesterday I wrote about an increase in traffic for 'Oron premium accounts' and Oron-related searches which led me to discover I couldn't access Oron.com from my home internet connection. After that post, in which I also mentioned not being able to access Multiupload, I've seen some people looking for information about Multiupload being down. If this is why you came here, I could use your help... Which, it could actually help a lot of people.
As somebody who is a regular file downloader, I like to stay apprised of what's happening in the industry. Plus, I run this site that is dedicated to file download services, so that's just extra incentive to stay on top of things. In all honesty though, it's blatantly apparent that I have no clue what's going on, probably much like everybody else. You think you have a grasp on what certain filehosters are doing, but then it is turned upside down the next minute.
