Submission + - Pirate Bay abandons Cyberbunker ISP

baptista writes: Today it was reported on torrentfreak that the Pirate Bay team has dropped CB3ROB and the Cyberbunker as their ISP and transit provider after I exposed criminal activities at the bunker (link includes cyberbunker bunny video and details on the Republic of Cyberbunker royal family).

After receiving criticism from fans that TPB not be associated with crooks or royal kooks a business decision was made and the Cyberbunker plug pulled. The Pirate Bay is currently offline but is expected to rise again out of the Cyberbunker asses.

Submission + - German Court rules against Pirate Bay ISP.

baptista writes: The MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) won a victory in a German Court against the Pirate Bay. The court issued an order against the dutch owner of CB3ROB to stop service to the Pirate Bay, The article in the register assumed wrongly that CB3ROB is a German ISP. It's not. It's dutch. Sven Olaf Kamphuis, aka Count Olaf of Cyberbunker, is the outspoken owner of CB3ROB. (The Register)

I used to work at the Cyberbunker with Sven so here's some history on it.

The Cyberbunker hosting facility referred to in the story is a former cold war military installation in the Netherlands. It is now owned by a Herman Johan Xennt (formerly Herman Johan Verwoert-Derksen aka Xennt). Xennt is a convicted felon in the Netherlands. He was arrested years ago on drug traffic charges for manufacturing ecstasy in the bunker and tax evasion. Sven Olaf Kamphuis was also arrested on the same drug charges. Kamphuis is known to the Dutch police for hacking several government computer systems.

Shortly after Xennt purchased the bunker he declared the property independent of the Netherlands, named it the Republic of Cyberbunker and installed himself as a constitutional monarchy. Kamphuis aka Count Olaf is a minister in King Xennt's Government. More information on the Republic of Cyberbunker is available at

Incidentally the Cyberbunker is full of bunnies. This is a video I made of the Cyberbunker and the bunnies in 2005

That was the one nice thing Xennt had to his character. He cared for stray animals like bunnies. Beyond that he is a reprehensible con artist who has destroyed families and stolen their life savings. I've met a few of these victims.

There is a related story I wrote on how a school in German was scammed by the Cyberbunker crew

I support the Pirate Bay but I am concerned it's hosted by criminals these days. I know what they can do. I trained the ring leader.


Comment The history and Fraud behind UnifiedRoot (Score 1) 370

The UnifiedRoot is an attempt to revive the Public-Root i.e. see and I am the founder of the Public-Root and by default the business principles subscribed too by the UnifedRoot. I declare the people behind the UnifiedRoot as fraudulent and associated with criminals. A good history of the UnifiedRoot and it's association with the Public-Root is unfortunately only available in Turkish. urkey was a country which subscribed to the Public-Root system, until my investigation closed the show down. The UnifiedRoot is an attempt by the commercial end to go it alone - good details on this unfortunately are only available in Turkish. There has not been an english language publication which has exposed this. But for those of you who read Turkish the story can be found at: Search for UNIDT, Public-Root, P-R, and UnifiedRoot for more details. Documents supporting my claims the companies and people behind this have committed fraud can be found at: The Public-Root/UnifiedRoot was a great idea until a few people destryed it due to the usual human frailties - greed being the primary one. Also the UnifiedRoot claims to be open, transparent, representative and bottom up. Those are just marketing words without much substance. Joe Baptista
