Whatever security measures you implement, some viruses do manage to sneak in an bite you in the ass. Even if you manage to remove them later using a better AV software, some leave lasting damage usually to the system registry.

Of course a system reinstall will solve the problems but that is a painstakingly long process. This is where Remove Restrictions Tool (RRT) can help.

Here is another nice tracker for Indian (Hindi) movie fans. IMTorrents is a private torrent tracker specializing in BollyWood movies, Indian music and TV Series. If you are looking for HollyWood blockbusters this obviously is not the place to get them. In fact, iMT does not track any MPAA rated movies. But it does track a lot of desi stuff so if you like Indian/Pakistani stuff this tracker is for you.

One nice thing I noted about this tracker is that it's minimum ratio requirement is 0.3. Even low bandwidth users should not have problems maintaining this ratio. In addition to that they have the entire Music and TV sections on free leech. iMT tracks close to 2000 active torrents and has a user base in excess of 20000 (at time of this post). They don't track any CAM or Pre-DVD movies so expect better quality stuff.

Signups will be open till 07th September 2008.

It would be fair to say that over the years Nero software suite because increasingly bloated. There have been many useful features added to the suite but useless crap such as Nero Scout (man I hate that POS) was added as well. Nero Micro and Nero Lite are custom made editions of Nero which have some of the the bloated features removed. Nero was initially known for CD/DVD burning so Lite and Micro versions only contain apps that are strictly related to this task.

nero_micro_lite

Nero Lite v8.3.6.0

Nero Lite edition is a custom made edition of Nero which includes only a few apps essential for CD/DVD burning. As a result the download size is reduced (It's around 30MB) and a lot of bloatware is left behind.

Nero Lite pack contains:

  • Nero Burning Rom (with VideoCD Support and MauSau Audio Plug-ins)
  • Nero Express
  • Nero CoverDesigner
  • Nero WaveEditor
  • Nero Toolkit

Nero Micro v8.3.6.0

Nero Micro is an even further stripped down version of Nero which has only two apps included in the package. Download size is even further reduced (around 20MB) as a result.

Nero Micro pack contains:

  • Nero Burning ROM (with VideoCD Support and MauSau Audio Plug-ins)

Popular bittorrent site  Araditracker has been shut down. The exact reason for the shut down is not known yet but it is suspected that it was due to legal pressure. And it is highly unlikely that Aradi's BT tracker will come back online ever again.

There is no official word on the shutdown in their IRC channel yet. The following line is all that is there related to the shutdown:

"No we don't know either, more info as and when "

For those interested, their official IRC channel is hosted in irc.foreverchat.net and the channel name is #araditracker. [mIRC users click here to access.]

Although I have not been active there recently, it was one of the first torrent sites I signed up for. It was a nice site and had a close knit community. R.I.P Araditracker

It is always sad to see a bittorrent site go down but in true Hydra fashion, several new trackers will soon pop up to fill the void. You can find information about private trackers and get notified about latest open signups via our Private Trackers Section.

BitRefinery currently tracks close to a thousand active torrents. Apart from content and activity the interface is nice and I particularly like the default color scheme.

ReleaseLog (RLSLOG) hacked?

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 8/29/2008 | | 0 Comments »

It looks as if the popular scene releases indexing site ReleaseLog (better known as RLSLOG) has been hacked. There was an automatic redirect in place earlier that redirected all visitors to a notification about a new site named Zerosec.ws. Zerosec.ws is supposedly the new site from ex-RlsLog editors. Now the redirect seems to have been removed and on the homepage is a post by the administrator account. Judging by the comments from editors, it looks as if they are barred from making new posts.

rlslog hacked

Around two weeks ago there was this whole drama about several of RLSLOG editors leaving the site due to a conflict with the admin.

RLSLOG IRC Channel now has the following topic:

* Topic is 'Yes RLSLOG.net has been hacked, please be patient all will be fixed soon.'
* Set by Flat on Fri Aug 29 08:59:57

Anyway hacking the site in a childish manner does not seem to be the right way to resolve the problem and I really hope this won't be then end of RLSLOG as it was really a nice site.

Update: It seems that Martin (RLSLOG admin) has regained control of the site and everything seems to be normal.

Microsoft has just released a new version (v1.8.0031.0,) of infamous Windows Genuine Validation (WGA) for Windows XP. This enhanced version of WGA is supposed to have improved detection and will enforce Vista like anti piracy measures on Windows XP. It will display an annoying reminder "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting" whenever a pirated version is detected. Additionally, it will reset the desktop wallpaper to a blank black screen every 60 minutes.

You can change the wallpaper manually but that would be a pain in the ass to do every hour. One thing you can do is that you can use a simple wallpaper changer tool and schedule it to change the wallpaper every hour, right after WGA resets the background to black. The message and wallpaper changes will not go away until you install a valid key and activate Windows properly.

WGA_Black_Screen

The new version (v1.8.0031.0) of Windows Genuine Advantage , is distributed via Windows Update (KB905474) as well as through Microsoft Download Center . Pirated XP users who unknowingly download this will be in for a surprise. Not all users will see the update right now as it is just released and will be rolled out gradually to the huge user base via Windows Update.

Right now the pirated users are left with few choices;

  1. Choose not to install KB905474 by setting Windows Updates to manual mode and then excluding KB905474 from selected updates.
  2. Manually remove WGA from their machine via a removal tool such as RemoveWGA (You computer won't pass genuine validation so some updates will be off limits to you)
  3. Purchase a legitimate version of Windows XP - Oh wait. You can't! XP is no longer sold so you will have to......Upgrade to Vista!

The real question will be as to how long will it take a scene group to crack this version of WGA as they did with so many times in the past.

One of the most annoying things I find with reinstalling Windows XP is running Windows Update for hours to re-download all those new updates (which are not integrated into my XP installation CD). It used to be a matter of minutes back when Autoptacher offline editions were being released but MS crapped all over it by sending them a Cease and Desist (C&D). RyanVM's Windows XP Post-SP3 Update Pack 1.0.0a lets you update your XP SP3 installation disk so that new upgrades are integrated into the installation cd itself.

The integration process is well documented and there is a separate software for that called RyanVM Integrator to aid in this process. Power users may opt to do this with nLite as well. It's not a complicated process and even novice users should be able to follow the instructions. Before you do anything, make sure that your Windows XP installation disk is SP3 integrated. Officially supported are English versions of Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home Editions.

RvanVM_integrator

Developer Description

This pack is designed to bring a Windows XP CD with SP3 integrated fully up to date with all of the latest hotfixes released by Microsoft since SP2's release. It accomplishes this task via direct integration, where files on the CD are directly overwritten by the updated files. This method has numerous advantages over other integration techniques:

  1. Since the files are being directly overwritten on the CD, there is no period of vulnerability between when the files are copied to the hard drive and the hotfixes are run. This guarantees maximum stability and security.
  2. All necessary registry entries needed by Windows Update, QFECheck, and Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer are imported during Windows setup, meaning that the integration is transparent to Windows.
  3. Security Catalogs necessary for Windows File Protection to recognize the updated files as digitally signed are installed, once again ensuring maximum transparency to Windows.
  4. Since the updated files are being directly overwritten on the CD, this pack has the minimum possible amount of overhead associated with integrating hotfixes in comparison to other methods - both in space used on the CD and in Windows installation time.
  5. This pack works regardless of whether or not the Windows installation is unattended.

In my opinion, SUPERAntiSpyware is very underrated. It is one of the best tools that I know of which allows you to remove rare and hard to remove spyware infections which most antivirus apps (NOD32, Kaspersky included) do not even detect. However I wouldn't recommend you to choose it as your primary security software. The reason is that although it will catch many spyware. adware and Trojans, it is likely to miss many of the viruses out there. What I do is that I have Kaspersky as my real time scanner and do a manual scan with SUPERAntiSpyware about once a week or if I notice anything odd with my machine. Don't run this and another AV software simultaneously as it will slow your system down considerably. This post features the free edition which has almost all features of the pro (including updates) except the real time protection.

Bionic Commando Rearmed cracked by DarkCoder

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 8/27/2008 | | 4 Comments »

The guy who beat the scene to crack BioShock and Alone in the Dark 5 has done it once again. The cracker who goes by the alias "DarkCoder" has released a working version of highly anticipated PC Game Bionic Commando Rearmed before any scene group has done so. Bionic Commando Rearmed is a download only game (no physical DVDs distributed) which is probably why the scene didn't bother with it. Anyway the game has received high ratings and has become a hit among many gamers.

I have seen several scene pre channels list this release but as far as i know DarkCoder is not scene. However the release naming (Bionic_Commando_Rearmed-DarkCoder) and file naming is done according to scene rules. It has already been nuked for a silly reason:

Bionic_Commando_Rearmed-DarkCoder.NUKE:homemade.iso

Which does not make any sense as the game does not come in a DVD in the first place. This ISO is obviously homemade but what matters is that this release does work. Expect your favorite bittorrent tracker to track this soon and expect a lot of people to download it as it is only 370MB in file size.

BionicCommandoRearmedlogo

Bionic Commando Rearmed sees a return of the intense 2D side-scrolling, shooting, and grappling action from the much-loved 1988 Bionic Commando on the original 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System. Bionic Commando Rearmed brings the amazing gameplay up to date with stunning new visuals, new weapons, online rankings, a reworked musical score, and the addition of a two-player co-op mode. The game will also provide cross-game interoperability, given that completing parts of Bionic Commando Rearmed will unlock new content and provide secret insight into the characters and plot of the brand-new Bionic Commando sequel coming later in 2008.

bionic_commando_rearmed

23

Game Features:

  • Classic Bionic Commando side-scrolling gameplay, updated with new abilities, weapons and bosses
  • 2-player co-op mode
  • Total modern visual and audio revamp
  • Cross-game interoperability – complete specific parts of Bionic Commando Rearmed to unlock new content and hints for the Bionic Commando sequel
  • Challenge Rooms – obstacles courses and swing puzzles that test your skills, with your best times ranked against other users in online leaderboards
  • Top-Down Stages – the return of the top-down scrolling gameplay of the original’s “Enemy Encounter” stages, with remixed music from the classic Commando!
  • Multiplayer – up to 4 players can face off in a frantic melee of shooting and swinging!
  • In-game art designed by Shinkiro, one of Capcom’s most talented artists

SceneLinks.ro (don't confuse this with SCL - The Clover which is a different site) has resurfaced after several months of downtime. This tracker was a good one when it was in full swing but due to some problem with Romanian authorities they shut it down and merged their user base with BitShock (Or at least that is what I think happened, the messages were all in Romanian). The site is back up now and seems to be in the process of recruiting new members. It's a general/0day tracker.

SceneLinks currently have 1000+ members and tracks over 200 torrents. Given my experience with this tracker in the past, I expect it would grow rapidly to become one of the better general trackers out there. They do have a user limit of 2000 currently so you may want to hurry if you want in.

Group TDM cracks Alone In the Dark 5 (2008)

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 8/25/2008 | | 0 Comments »

Well it certainly took long enough. The latest installment in the Alone in the dark (AITD) series  was released on the 23rd of June. The game has just been cracked by P2P group TDM. There have been several non working scene releases in the meantime but this looks like the real deal. Expect private and public bittorrent trackers across the world to track TDM's release soon. Exclusive scene trackers won't track this release as this is released by a P2P group.

Anyway one thing is for sure; the server side activated SecuROM is definitely posing problems for the gaming scene. Usually it does not take scene groups long to crack a game after it's released (usually scene groups crack it before the street date). But games protected with the new SecuROM has posed problems for crackers, examples being Bioshock (Cracked after 13 days), Mass Effect (Initial crack missing SecuROM triggers thus causing buggy gameplay - fixed version appeared after about 2 weeks), AITD (Cracked after 2 months) and Bionic Commando Rearmed (Not cracked yet).

Taking inspiration from the presentation style and structure of a number of acclaimed and globally popular TV action dramas, Alone in the Dark is split into a number of distinct episodes in a season-style format. With approximately 30-40 minutes of gameplay comprising each episode, the structure of Alone in the Dark is adapted for an audience familiar with the hard-hitting bite-size delivery of contemporary TV dramas, offering easy accessibility whether the player has hours to devote or only wants a quick TV-style fix.

Tv.Torrents.Ro (TVT.Ro) is currently open for new signups. This tracker is definitely among the top 3 dedicated TV torrent trackers along with Bitmetv (BMTV) and Tvtorrents.com (TVT.com). TVT.Ro currently has its invites system disabled so the only way users can get into the tracker is during open signups periods such as this. If you download TV shows through bittorrent, you should definitely check this site out. Signups usually don't stay open for long so you might want to hurry.

TVT.Ro tracks over 8000 torrents and has a user base of over 19000. Although the tracker is of Romanian origin, all the shows it tracks are either US or Canadian ones. TVT.Ro indexes scene releases, P2P releases as well as internal packs unique to the tracker.

TVT.ro packs

Image: Some of the internal packs at TVT.Ro. The FREE Icon next to the torrent means it's in feeleech mode (only upload is counted in your stats - good for ratio building) 

You may notice that some of the torrents come with ROsubs tag which means they have Romanian subtitles. If you don't want them you can safely delete .srt (or .sub and .idx) files and replace them with English (or any other language) subtitles downloaded externally.

First of all, don't get your hopes up thinking it's WLM 9.0 Final; it's still a beta build. So what's the big fuss about this leak? Well the latest build (build 14.0.3921.717) of Windows Live Messenger 9 is supposed to be accessible only by a select group of beta testers as it is not a public beta. But now the leaked version may be downloaded, installed and run by anyone including you and me.

Trojan Remover 6.7.2 build 2539

Posted by TEAM FILEnetworks | 8/23/2008 | , | 1 Comments »

Trojan Remover 6.7.2 build 2539 is the latest build of Trojan Remover available on 22-08-08.

Trojan Remover aids in the removal of Malware - Trojan Horses, Worms, Adware, Spyware - when standard anti-virus software either fails to detect them or fails to effectively eliminate them. Standard antivirus programs are good at detecting this Malware, but not always good at effectively removing it. Trojan Remover is designed to work on Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista. The program is not compatible with any 64bit version of Windows. The majority of Virus and Trojan Scanners are well able to detect malicious software - Trojan Horses, Internet Worms, Adware/Spyware etc. - but are not always very efficient in removing them once they have been triggered.

trojan_remover

Trojan Remover is designed specifically to disable/remove Malware without the user having to manually edit system files or the Registry. The program also removes the additional system modifications some Malware carries out which are ignored by standard antivirus and trojan scanners.Trojan Remover scans ALL the files loaded at boot time for Adware, Spyware, Remote Access Trojans, Internet Worms and other malware. Trojan Remover also checks to see if Windows loads Files/Services which are hidden by Rootkit techniques and warns you if it finds any.

Windows Vista looks a lot better than Windows XP but damn that shortcut arrow is too big. By the 'shortcut' arrow I mean the overlay icon which is automatically placed on desktop (and other) shortcuts in Vista. It almost covers 1/4 of the icon and there is no visible option in Windows Vista to change the size or remove it.

However, you can change or remove the overlay shortcut arrow using Vista shortcut manager (This program is also called FxVisor and was formerly known as Vista shortcut overlay remover). It allows users to either change the shortcut arrow to a lighter and smaller version, to choose a custom arrow of the user's choice or to entirely remove the arrow.

This program is freeware (not that it matters if you are a pirate :p ).
