In November we decided to make something new in the rights section. First of all we have re-written the rules (they will be online in 12-24 hours) and second we added an appeal option for all banned users. From now on if you were wrongfully banned, you can appeal to our mods and might get the ban lifted!

Regarding The Latest Malware Issues

You might have noticed that some time ago some websites and anti-viruses started labeling as a malware infected website. Unfortunately for a short period of time this was true. We were using the OpenX platform for showing our ads and at some point this platform became compromised and started replacing our normal ads with infected ones. In this difficult situation we decided to stop using the OpenX platform, so from now on the website is officially 100% safe!

We want to apologize to our users that suffered damage from this issue and we will do our best to avoid such problems in future.

Thanks you for your support and understanding!

We've noticed that some of our users are experiencing problems with their default language of The thing is, that today we changed the way the languages are displayed and what is most important switched from sub-domains like to the use of cookies. So that is why some of the users have the website in the wrong language! But this can be easily fixed - just scroll down to the bottom of the page, click the change language option and select the language you want.

Our users that are using the Avast anti-virus might have noticed that suddenly became labeled as a dangerous website for users that are not logged in. We want to assure our users that KickassTorrents has no malware or viruses of any kind and it is absolutely safe to use our website. We already contacted Avast and currently we are trying to find and fix the cause of this problem. You will help us if you choose the "Report the file as a false positive" option if you get the alert.


If you are interested in the issue, or want to support us feel free to participate in the discussion on the official Avast forum.

Thank you!

Update: Avast just notified us that everything is fixed! If you have avast please check if the issue is gone!

Steve was a great inspiration to us all, so it's kind of a sad day here at HQ. For us he will always be a great visionary and a man that truly changed our everyday lives.
