Demonoid.com is back online!

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 9/30/2007 | | 0 Comments »

The Demon has returned from the ashes to claim its rightful place :D

One of the most popular torrents sites in the world Demonoid.com is now back on line after suffering from a week's downtime. The sudden death of Demonoid on 25th of September sparked fears among the bit torrent community of a possible CRIA involved shutdown. Both the tracker and site went unresponsive without any prior notification, causing millions of downloads come to a standstill. Demonoid lead admin "deimos" was also not available for comment on official Demonoid IRC channel.

However on the 29th of September, Demonoid showed signs of life with its torrent tracker inferno.demonoid.com coming back online. The site too is now back online but there is some disturbing news.

" Newspost - Sep/30/2007

Downtime
We received a letter from a lawyer represeting the CRIA, they were threatening with legal action and we need to start blocking Canadian traffic because of this.
Thanks for your understanding, and sorry for any inconvenience. "

This news will no doubt add to the woes of bit torrent users in North American region. Leading torrent sites TorrentSpy, ISOHunt and TorrentBox have already decided to block access to US visitors as results of lawsuits filed by anti-piracy organizations. But with new torrent sites emerging daily and with giants like The Pirate Bay still online, it's highly unlikely that attempts by anti piracy organizations will do any lasting damage to the bittorrent community.

    MediaDefender is a company which offers services designed to prevent and stop people who engage in peer-to-peer copyright infringement, using tactics such as flooding peer-to-peer networks with decoy files that tie up a user's computer. IT was widely speculated that MediaDefender was behind the creation of Video upload site www.miivi.com and was working in conjunction with anti-piracy groups such as the MPAA. This claim was denied and ridiculed by MediaDefender executives but latest e-mail leak suggest otherwise. 9 months of MediaDefender's internal mails containing information ranging from their server logins to weekend trip photos have been leaked to bit torrent by a group called MediaDefender-Defenders. Their upload notice reads:

    -={ MediaDefender-Defenders }=-

    Date: 2007-09-15

    MediaDefender-Defenders proudly presents 9 months worth of internal MediaDefender emails.

    By releasing these emails we hope to secure the privacy and personal integrity of all peer-to-peer users. The emails contains information about the various tactics and technical solutions for tracking p2p users, and disrupt p2p services.

    A special thanks to Jay Maris, for circumventing there entire email-security by forwarding all your emails to your gmail account, and using the really highly secure password: blahbob

    So here it is, we hope this is enough to create a viable Defense to the tactics used by these companies, also there should be enough fuel to keep the p2p bloggers busy for quite some time.

    -={ MediaDefender-Defenders }=-

    The e-mails confirm that miivi was actually a fake site designed to lure unsuspecting video uploaders and later sue them for copyright infringement. E-mails also reveal various anti-p2p strategies used by MediaDefender (including the use of fake trackers and uploading of fake torrents) to pollute bittorrent traffic. For example, their anti-p2p strategy to reduce "The Simpson Movie" torrent downloads is as mentioned below:

    # REMINDER: “The Simpson’s Movie” premieres this Friday (to Torrents).

    • Decoy files are available in torrents MDfile server.
    • Use Public Trackers for pre-Leak releases.
    • Create two new trackers for this project.
    • Ebert to inform Torrents of these new machines.
    • Send a list of 5 release names from each torrent team member to Ebert.
    • REMEMBER to input torrent file into interdiction if a real Leak is available this weekend.

    -Quoted from a leaked internal e-mail :p

    If anyone is interested in reading the mails, you can find them here. 700MB of text files are compressed into a 134MB multi part RAR file. Once you are done UnRARing, you'll find .mbox files which contain the mails. Open these with any text editor (i.e. Notepad, Wordpard, TextPad, UltraEDIT, etc) and laugh at the misery of almighty Media Defender.

    Spybot Search and Destroy 1.5.1

    Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 9/12/2007 | , | 1 Comments »

    Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

    How to get it

    Spybot S&D is a free utility. You can get it from Safer-networking.org web site.

    ESET NOD32 Antivirus 2.70 build 39

    Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 9/06/2007 | , | 15 Comments »

    Ever since this blog's launch, we've been recommending users to use Mcafee VirusScan Enterprise as their primary security software. But time has now come to change that. There is a new king of he hill; NOD32 from ESET.

    First of all, let us justify our decision to recommend NOD32 over Mcafee VirusScan Enterprise (VSE):

    1. Since the introduction of Mcafee 5000.194 scan engine, ActiveShield service may sometimes consume up to 45MB of physical memory, making it a resource hog. NOD32 on the other hand is very light on system resources and features faster scan times. NOD32 Resident scanner wont consume more than 20MB of RAM most of the time.

    2. NOD32 gets access to new virus signature files faster than Mcafee. Its average threat response time has been hovering over the 2 hour mark for a long time (Source: CNET).

    BioShock has been cracked!

    Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 9/01/2007 | | 4 Comments »

    When this game first came out, we though the unbelievable had happened; A game which the cracker community couldnt break. But it has been proven yet again that everything can be broken. SecuROM's new otherworldy protection (Serial + DVD Check + Online Activation) mechanism has been beaten by a Russian individual who calls himself "DarkCoder".

    Going beyond "run and gun corridors," "monster-closet AIs" and static worlds, BioShock creates a living, unique and unpredictable FPS experience. After your plane crashes into icy uncharted waters, you discover a rusted bathysphere and descend into Rapture, a city hidden beneath the sea. Constructed as an idealistic society for a hand picked group of scientists, artists and industrialists, the idealism is no more. Now the city is littered with corpses, wildly powerful guardians roam the corridors as little girls loot the dead, and genetically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn.

     

    Take control of your world by hacking mechanical devices, commandeering security turrets and crafting unique items critical to your very survival. Upgrade your weapons with ionic gels, explosives and toxins to customize them to the enemy and environment.Genetically modify your body through dozens of Plasmid Stations scattered throughout the city, empowering you with fantastic and often grotesque abilities. Explore a living world powered by Ecological A.I., where the inhabitants have interesting and consequential relationships with one another that impact your gameplay experience. Experience truly next generation graphics that vividly illustrate the forlorn art deco city, highlighted by the most detailed and realistic water effects ever developed in a video game. Make meaningful choices and mature decisions, ultimately culminating in the grand question: do you exploit the innocent survivors of Rapture...or save them?
