Mega.co.nz enters top 150 sites, bigger than DropBox, Rapidshare

Kim Dotcom’s recently launched Mega file locker website has been climbing the ranks of the world’s biggest sites very quickly indeed. Just yesterday it had become the biggest site in New Zealand and today it’s managed to eclipse not only Rapidshare, but DropBox as well.

This was announced by Kim Dotcom on his regularly updated twitter account, with the simple message “141.” This is because while Mega.co.nz’s three month ranking is still somewhere in the low thousands, in-fact the site’s daily rank has show to 141, ranking it in the top 150 websites in the world. Considering it was only launched on Friday, that’s a tremendous achievement.

However all is not 100 per cent well in the Mega camp. There’s been rumours and some suggestions by hackers and learned security folk that the encryption used on Mega is far from satisfactory. It’s a relatively complicated issue that I won’t pretend to understand 100 per cent – here’s a much more in-depth explanation – but it’s to do with the use of javascript and poorly created random entropy for the encryption keys.

Addressing these claims, Dotcom has remained confident but not cocky, suggesting that prizes could soon be available for any white hats that point out holes in the system.

KitGuru Says: So how have you guys been finding Mega so far? Of the millions of new users, a fair few KG readers must be some of them.

    The site has a long way to got to really compete with Dropbox etc. Sure you can upload and share files, but who wants to sit there with their browser open when you can just copy and paste files on your OS. If they get some desktop apps then they might actually become useful.

    why would anyone trust their files are safe with mega? This is crazy, they are never going to compete with companies like justcloud.com or dropbox as theres no trust. People are more likely to lose or their files with them uploaded to mega than just leaving them on their comptuers when there servers once again are shut down. Avoid like the plague and use a proper company like dropbox or justcloud.com who I use.
