Internet Removals takes down 14,628 URL's relating to Revenge Porn and Image-based Abuse

Earlier in the month of August, Internet Removals was tipped off to a site hosted in New Zealand containing what we believe to be over 14,000 folders, images and videos of young women in Australia.

After careful examination, Internet Removals identified that the website was operated by well organised and persistent offenders. An image below highlights the organisation structure, by state, which later broke into major cities and then local suburbs.

The local suburbs then contained names of, on average, 80 girls per folder. Inside of the folders contained an average of 18 explicit photos and videos of the victims.

On 27 August 2018 Internet Removals lodged content removal applications and was successful in deactivating the entire website, which we believe to have contained approximately 14,628 images and videos of young Australian women.

We have since been in receipt of two other tip-offs, containing approximately 7,000 - 8,000 similar images and videos. We expect to be deactivating these sites over the next 48-72 hours.
