“I guess all I can say is I’ll take what I can get”
“From a reliable source I have learned that SIDN doesn’t like the fact that their customer leaves his offices to head for Arnhem with a couple of friends and some metal objects. Very good method to ‘advise’ them to provide some service to their customer.”
HRH Sven Olaf Kamphuis, Prince of CyberBunker.

This is going to be a story mixed with details such as a nuclear bunker with XTC production, a suspected IRA operative, Turkish interests and the collaboration of KPMG, Meyburg, RABO and (again) Tiscali. (…) Kamphuis: “We were the largest porn “farmer” of Europe. Adult entertainment distributors from every European country knew where to find us“. (…) When a fire broke loose, the fire department ran into an XTC lab within the bunker.
Dutch language news article:
Herman Xennt the man behind INAIC first came to public attention in 2002 as the man behind the XTC bunker. The “bunker” is a former NATO base built in 1955.In 1995 Herman purchased the facility from the dutch government and installed himself as a constitutional monarch (http://www.republic-cyberbunker.org/). He also installed an XTC lab to manufacture the psychoactive and psychedelic drugs ecstasy and MDMA. On Saturday July 27th 2002 the XTC lab went up in flames and the dutch fire brigade was called. This prompted a police investigation into the XTC lab and Xennt was arrested the next day for drug trafficking. Herman became an infamous local celebrity overnight and was widely reported in the local papers. But at the local police station in the City of Goes Herman is best known as a commercial fraud artist. Adriaan Capello is the police officer who keeps an eye on Herman. Capello has an impressive file of complaints from people swindled by Xennt in various technology investment schemes. Capello points out there is nothing the local police can do. Capello tries his best to investigate but in the end the police don’t have the time, resources, or expertise to investigate commercial crime involving high technology fraud and the cases end up in limbo.
On Wednesday (26th November 2009), it became public that The Pirate Bay (TPB), where people are able to download illegal movies and music, is broadcasting via the provider CB3ROB in Germany. CB3ROB has a network of servers, routers and racks all over the world; one of those locations is the bunker in Kloetinge, but according to Kamphuis, TPB is not hosted there, he has stated: “But if they wanted too I could arrange it right away”
Dutch language news article:
The Pirate Bay have now moved operations to a nuclear bunker in the Netherlands. Now called Cyberbunker and operating as an ISP, the location is a former NATO bunker built in 1955. The bunker is capable of withstanding both electromagnetic pulse bombs and nuclear attacks. The Cyberbunker domain was created on 23 March 2000 and is registered to a ‘Mr Xennt, Cyberbunker, Snelweg 1, Juinen 4036 BH, NL’. Cyberbunker is owned by the Cyberbunker Foundation. Carriers had initially refused to carry traffic from The Pirate Bay after receiving threats from the formidable BREIN in the Netherlands, but now matters have been settled amicably. ‘I don’t expect BREIN to do pretty much anything at this point’, said Sven Kamphuis of Cyberbunker. ‘The last conversation we had with them was about some MP3 site they wanted to have shut down somewhere in 2001-2002. It took around 3 hours at 2:00 AM at night and the end result was that both parties agreed not to agree.’
According to Sven Kamphuis, one of the owners of CB3ROB/Cyberbunker, there were some initial troubles with setting up The Pirate Bay in its new location as several carriers refused to pass on the relay information after they received threats from the entertainment industry led by the Dutch anti-piracy outfit BREIN.
Why CB3ROB is based in Germany? Kamphuis: “Over here, things like data protection are regulated in a much better way. And the German legal system will generally favor the party that had it right in the first place…”. (…) “We will not allow ourselves to be threatened. It’s not up to BREIN to dictated what can and cannot be broadcasted on the internet. Before you know it Scientology and the Chinese government will knock on our door. Obviously we cannot give into that.” (…) The Pirate Bay blockade did not last very long. On Tuesday afternoon The Pirate Bay was available again, almost anywhere in the world. One can thank Sven Kamphuis for that, the general manager of CB3ROB, located in Germany. He is offering a so-called IP tunnel to facilitate all traffic related to The Pirate Bay, as of last Tuesday. “We put all the packets in a tunnel. At the end of the tunnel they will go to load balancers in a data center where the site is hosted“, Kamphuis explains from Berlin, Germany. That setup will obfuscate the location of The Pirate Bay.

please leak piratebay prefix 126.96.36.199/24
we currently announce 188.8.131.52/24, unfortunately some of our carriers have been threattened by the illegal entertainment kartell mafia and dont really feel like relaying this prefix for us. if you do have this prefix over one of our peerings as i know many of you do, feel free to accidentially leak it to the rest of the world until something better is worked out :P (in a later stadium the old DCP AS is planned to be behind AS34109 again on its own, this is a temporary workaround)
origin: AS34109 (CB3ROB / CYBERBUNKER)
action: leak :P
if you want to “pick up” the piratebay prefix for your eyeballs you can do
so by setting up peering with us at NL-IX (firstname.lastname@example.org) or obtain it from several of our

Dutch hacker Sven Olaf ‘CB3ROB’ Kamphuis used fake Whois records to shield his clients
Whois records contain information about the owner of a site, the provider, and the nameservers and DNS-servers associated with the site. The Whois registry enables people to find out who is running a site. By faking Whois records, it becomes much harder to establish who is running a certain site. Naturally, spammers, phishers, pirates and other cybercriminals prefer to use providers that are willing to hide their identities.Faking Whois records is a violation of the rules set forth by ICANN, the organisation responsible for the operation of the Domain Name System (DNS). While providers like Cyberbunker claim that they protect the privacy of their users, the reality is that their services mainly attract cybercriminals.
you can’t give any idiot with some fake “morals” their way. furthermore, we own the internet, we make the rules. use is on an as-is basis and if anyone is to be kicked out they can be damn sure it will be the MPAA/RIAA members first (there is after all, as they so nicely point out themselves, no basic right to having your packets relayed, so they’d better act friendly to isps, or paramount pictures may well find their own networks inaccessible from most of the world rather soon). at this moment, we can see such people as nothing else but a clear threat to the internet itself.

RUPTLY: Have you had any contact with WikiLeaks or Julian Assange?
SOK: We did have contact with some Wikileaks people back in the days when there were some issues but it didn’t get any further than them running a Wikileaks mirror in the end. The original plan was to put it all in one of our facilities.
RUPTLY: Which person or organization angers you the most?
SOK: The Spamhaus mafia tactics definitely are the largest threat to the freedom of the internet at this moment, yes so they piss me off the most.
Probably the copyright people, that’s a good second. The IRAA and the MPAA and all their wannabe attorneys are a good second but at least they go to court even though they may try to corrupt the court, at least they go to court which is something that cannot be said for Spamhaus.
I also want to advise you that during the time period that I have been in Germany Mr. Scheepers made a number of accusations against me. Namely that my luggage which was returned to Mr. Burger under the custody of an individual by the name of Sven Olaf Kamphuis (also arrested during the XTC lab incident) contained heroin. Mr. Scheepers has withdrawn this allegation and apologized to me. H (…) Currently Joe is wandering around. Sven Kamphuis, who helped Joe to cross the German border told us that he discovered a large quantity of Heroine in Joe’s luggage. Sven Kamphuis did not report this to the authorities.
The Pirate Bay / CyberBunker / MPA Injunction In Full
Earlier this week it became apparent that the main Hollywood studios had made good on their threat to take legal action against Pirate Bay bandwidth provider CB3ROB/CyberBunker. At the time, CB3ROB owner Sven Kamphuis told us that he had yet to see the injunction. TorrentFreak has obtained a copy along with an English translation.
