“We are a group of uploaders & admin’s from ExtraTorrent. As you know, SAM from ExtraTorrent pulled the plug yesterday and took all data offline under pressure from authorities,” reads an email sent to Fossbytes.
“We have successfully resurrected it back to it’s glory at extratorrent.cd with all available data. It’s live and new data is continuously being updated. Some small features are not yet working & we are getting it fixed as we speak”
In the email, the group also claim to have restored torrent sites The Pirate Bay and KickAss Torrents when the sites went offline in the past.
As of writing this story, Extratorrent.cd is working and the torrent site also has the HTTPS protocol enabled.

Update: When Extratorrent went down, Extratorrent operators warned about the fake ExtraTorrent websites and clones. So, we must take this news with a pinch of salt as Extratorrent.cd might be another fake clone.
We’ll update this story if we manage to contact Extratorrent operator SaM for a comment.
