WinRAR is a file archiver and data compression utility developed by Eugene Roshal. It is arguably one of the two main file archive programs for Windows, along with WinZip.

WinRAR

Features:

  • Complete support for RAR and ZIP archives, and unpacking of ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, 7z and Z archives. Future versions of WinRAR are planned to include 7z creation.
  • The ability to create self-extracting and multi-volume (split) archives.
  • Data redundancy is provided via recovery records and recovery volumes, even allowing reconstruction of damaged archives.
  • Support for advanced NTFS file system options and Unicode in file names.
  • Optional archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a 128-bit key.

CZONE back up, still open

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 3/28/2008 | 8 Comments »

CZONE, after suffering from downtime and database deletion yesterday, have now restored services of both the site and the tracker. They seem to be in the process of re uploading all torrents previously in the database.

Better yet, signups are still open; there are currently 18000+ members and according to site admins around 11000 more open registrations will be accepted before signup closure. You may want to hurry if you want an account.

untitled

A notice on site's front page now reads:
"Dear Friends,
Because of some electricity problems, independent from us, in the last days we had some technical difficulties as you all have seen.
The good news is that we took advantage of this and we added up some special features to the tracker that will optimize the activity of  all the users, like automatic verification for hit and runners, no passkey downloads and fake ratio.All of the above had determined us to give up on the old database and thus meaning that you have to re-register your accounts.You can register new accounts for free, without the necessity of an invite until we reach 30.000 users.
We'll even initiate a contest to repay you: all users that will be promoted to "Power User" will get 2 invites and "C-ZONE Elite Member" will get 5 invites.The promotion is available until we reach 30.000 users."

The site is in Romanian but most of torrents are English. CZONE was (and still is, judging by the rate of new registrations) a well sought after private tracker in the bittorrent community.

Czone.ro which is considered to be one of the elite bittorrent trackers, has opened signups. The surprise move comes after the site seemingly deleted all torrents and all user accounts from the database (or their DB crashed and they started from scratch). Either way, they are currently accepting new signups.

As of time of post, there are no torrents in the database. However the registered user count has shot up from 0 to 3800+ in a short while. Get yourselves an account; this is an elite tracker! (if it returns to its former glory that is).

Site Name: CZONE Tracker

Signup URL: http://torrents.czone.ro/signup.php

Description: Romania based tracker with general content. Although site language is Romanian, 99% of the content is English.

Update: (Quoted from their forums)

"there were added functional elements for automatic checking of hit and run, downloading without pass key and fake ratio.this is why we had to dump the old data base.
there is free signup up to 30 000 users. everybody that gets promoted to power user in this period (up to 30 000 users) gets 2 invites and who is promoted to elite member gets 5 invites."

TorrentSpy shut down + Alternatives

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 3/27/2008 | | 1 Comments »

TorrentSpy, one of the most visited bittorrent search engines on the Internet, has permanently shut down its operations since 24th of March, 2008. Although the site merely indexed torrents and did not operate a tracker, it was popular among beginners to the bittorrent world.

image_thumb[3]

The site has been in a prolonged court battle with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), which resulted in the site blocking access to US visitors as well as deleting all cached torrent files from their server.

So is this a major blow to the bittorrent community? Although TorrentSpy will be missed, it will not be the end of the world. Here is what Brokep (Administrator of The Pirate Bay) had to say about the closure:

"Today, sadly, Justin decided to shut down TorrentSpy. It does not change things for the other torrent sites more than usual. New sites will emerge, the other torrent sites will get a small boost in traffic. It’s however very sad to see that the pressure put on one single peer has been so hard that one of the main players in the torrent scene has to shut down his site.

Today all big torrent sites are pressured somehow. TPB has it’s share of pressure, however we expected it and have a legal system that is more just in cases like this. The way that the copyright lobby is going at this is totally wrong and we can’t let them win. And we won’t let them win. Today we reached a loss of a site, but it was more a person having to give up for economical reasons than anything else. The copyright lobby has their big cards - money and influence. In the long run they will have to give up as well. And when they do, I’ll go to the US and buy Justin a well-deserved beer."

Alternatives:

If you were a TorrentSpy user and is looking for alternatives, here are some.

Here is some good news for NOD32 users who are tired of getting their keys blacklisted. If you follow the method described below, you will no longer be needing a key to update your copy of NOD32 Antivirus 3.0 or ESET Smart Security (and this works with trial versions). The process does not involve cracking or doing any sort of modification to the core files of above mentioned programs.

eset-smart-security-nod32

What is an alternative update server?

From creator's page:

"This mirror have the purpose to offer updates to eset security products (for any product, 32 or 64bits). This is a direct mirror from eset update servers. This way you can continue to use this security products after the trial. I'll do my best to keep this updates running so far I can. There are hourly checks between this server and ESET servers. This is an automated system so the updates will be brought to you for sure. Fell free to create regfix and similar "patches".

What are the supported products?

As of now we have tested the server with all version 3 series releases of ESET smart Security and ESET NOD32 Anti Virus system. This includes both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

Will it work forever?

There is no guarantee that it will work forever. It has been 10 days since server launch and has been working fine since. If the creator decides to pull the plug on the server, there will be no more updates. Only solution will be to apply a patch or to find another update server.

Slysoft cracks Blu-Ray copy protection

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 3/20/2008 | 0 Comments »

Antigua based software developer SlySoft claims to have cracked the copy protection scheme used by Sony's Blu-Ray discs (BD+). The latest version of SlySoft AnyDVD HD now has the capability to copy and backup copy protected High Definition (HD) movies stored in Blu-Ray or HD-DVD discs.

Blu-ray_Disc.svg 

Unlike in the case with HD-DVD, Slysoft will not find cracking BD+ to be a one time solution. This is due to the fact that BD+ supports security updates. That means, newer disks will have updated protection against the cracks. But as always, it is safe to assume that updates releases too will be cracked in due time (WGA anyone?), as has happened with almost every copy protection scheme in the world.

Here is what Giancarlo Bettini, SlySoft CEO had to say about his company's breakthrough:

"We are convinced that today's release will give the high-density market new impulse. It remains unclear just what direction this will take. On the one hand, it can give Blu-ray a boost because the end-user has the certainty in knowing now that a backup security copy can also be made from Blu-ray disks protected by BD+. On the other hand, one or more film studios may want to reconsider their withdrawal from HD DVD and Toshiba could also grant the high-density DVD a reprieve. HD DVD certainly deserves a second chance, particularly since HD DVD hardware has obtained a higher market share within the last months than its BD counterpart from SONY. In any event, I wish all those involved a happy Easter from the bottom of my heart."

After some delays, bugs and more fixes, it's finally released to the public. It's supposed to address 500 odd bugs and ass much needed performance enhancements to Vista. According to MS "Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) is an update to Windows Vista that addresses feedback from our customers. In addition to previously released updates, SP1 will contain changes focused on addressing specific reliability, performance, and compatibility issues; supporting new types of hardware; and adding support for several emerging standards,"

SP1 is now being distributed over Windows Update. However you might not see the update just yet as Microsoft are rolling it step by step so their servers and support staff can handle the demand. But if you cant wait, here are the direct download links to standalone versions.

MS has said that SP1 will effectively detect the BIOS emulation cracks most pirates used to activate their copy of Vista. We cannot confirm the accuracy of this claim yet, but some users reportedly had earlier RTM build of SP1 + Paradox BIOS emulation crack with no issues at all.

Almost all of us use an Anti Virus software. Nowadays the installation of an AV is not a complex task and most of the time can be done in a jiffy. But how can we know if the installation in working properly?

Eicar Anti Malware test file is specially designed for this purpose. First of all, it is not a piece of malware nor is it harmful. It is merely a string of characters which matches to a virus signature in most AV software's database. If your anti virus software detects the file as a virus, then it is functioning correctly. If it does not, it is time to reinstall or repair the current security product or to get a new AV.

Download Links - HTTP

Download Links - SSL

A good AV software (with maximum security features turned on) should detect the file in all instances while one with poor detection capabilities will make less number of detections.

This is how our AV software made the detection for one of the links:

As we said before, the file is harmless.
