PRINCETON, US 19th December 2022 - Football fans have taken to social media to react to the news that popular streaming website Hesgoal & Score808 amongst many other sites have been banished by United States law enforcement authorities with the FIFA World Cup 2022 finals approaching.
Piracy is an issue prevalent in sport with sites such as Hesgoal attracting "millions" of monthly visitors looking to stream live content for free. That option was thought to be banished by US authorities. Instead, visitors were welcomed by a seizure banner, stating the US now owns the domain and restricts access. In only a few hours after the site was seized, the suspects launched a new website to stream sports under the name AJ Sports TV. They are accessible on https://www.ajsportstv.ch
Homeland security execs worked closely with FBI to track down owners of popular illegal streaming sites in the hopes of tackling major crimes of distributing copyright material without the owner’s consent.
US Intelligence are led to believe that two twelve-year old Russian hackers were behind the streaming website Hesgoal and Score808, pin-pointing their location to Moscow, Russia. The ongoing conflict between Russia and US leaves authorities having no jurisdiction to detain suspected criminals.
A few days ago Russia warns of ‘consequences’ if U.S. sends Patriot missiles to Ukraine KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia’s Foreign Ministry warned Thursday that if the United States confirms reports that it plans to deliver sophisticated air defense missiles to Ukraine, it would be “another provocative move by the U.S.” that could prompt a response from Moscow.
AJ Sports TV’s domain was registered in Russia’s origin which leaves the US intelligence having no control or influence over the court proceedings leaving FIFA Owner, Gianni Infantino infuriated at the US Government for not taking deem able action.
