MediaDefender’s Decoy Effectiveness on BitTorrent Sites (http://www.rlslog.net/mediadefender%e2%80%99s-decoy-effectiveness-on-bittorrent-sites/)

Posted on 23.09.2007 at 07:12 in Tech News (http://www.rlslog.net/category/tech-news/) by Mr. X
MediaDefender’s email (http://torrentfreak.com/mediadefender-emails-leaked-070915/) and anti piracy tool (http://torrentfreak.com/mediadefender-anti-piracy-tools-leaked-070920/) leaks gave the world an unique insight into the workings and the effectiveness of their BitTorrent decoy operations. So how effective were they? And which sites were best protected against these fake torrents? Let’s find out.
http://torrentfreak.com//images/media-defenders.jpgMediaDefender determines the effectiveness of their spoofs and decoys by analyzing the top search results for the file in question, mostly movies and music albums. If 2 out of 10 top search results are fake files spread by them, their effectiveness is 20% on that particular BitTorrent site. Their goals is of course to get as many fake files in there, hoping people will end up downloading useless data.
There is a lot of variance in the reported effectiveness between BitTorrent sites and the different decoy projects. We scanned through most of the reports and it seems that The Pirate Bay (http://thepiratebay.org/) and Mininova (http://mininova.org/) were best protected against fake files whereas MediaDefender was more effective on sites like BiteNova and TorrentPortal.
Niek from Mininova, the toughest site to get onto according to MediaDefender, wrote a blog post (http://blog.mininova.org/articles/2007/09/15/about-the-mediadefender-leaked-emails/) in response to the leaked MediaDefender emails. He sums up some of the quotes that show how well protected Mininova is. Niek adds, “We can only be grateful for the many nice words from our friends at MediaDefender. All thanks go to our great moderating team, who did (and do) great work.”
The Pirate Bay always has been one of MediaDefender’s main targets because this site is often mentioned in the press. Unfortunately for MediaDefender The Pirate Bay is also one of the sites that is well protected against fake files.
In July, Brokep from The Pirate Bay already told us (http://torrentfreak.com/the-piratebay-wants-mediadefender-to-walk-the-bankruptcy-plank/) that they were doing all they can to block Media Defender from accessing their trackers. “We block them and some other torrent sites do as well.” he said.
This apparently annoyed MediaDefender, as we can see from one of their emails regarding the effectiveness of their decoys for Micheal Moore’s Sicko: “we still have no presence on Pirate bay which is a site they [Weinstein?] are likely watching as it was mentioned in the AdAge article they referenced.”
Here is an example of an effectiveness report for “Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer” based on the top search results. Note that an effectiveness of 100% means that all the torrents that showed up in the search results (top 6/10/15) were fake.
BiteNova: 100%
Bittorrent.am 27%
Btjunkie 20%
Btmon 15%
BushTorrent 100%
ExtraTorrent 47%
Fenopy 100%
FlixFlux 23%
FullDLS 32%
IsoHunt 100%
Meganova 100%
Mininova 0%
Monova 35%
MyBittorrent 91%
NewTorrents 0%
Novatina 98%
PirateBay 0%
Snarf-it 74%
TorrentBox 32%
TorrentLocomotive 47%
TorrentPortal 100%
TorrentReactor 0%
TorrentSpy 4%
TorrentValley 77%
TorrentView 27%
Torrentz 22%
Underground 0%
WorldNova 97%
Yotoshi 92%

It seems as though NewTorrents (http://www.newtorrents.info/), is in the top 5 for the best torrent sites with 0% faked torrents.

I have never gotten a virus from a torrent.

The reason I use Pirate Bay first over other torrents, is cause its more of a community there, and most of the people that post shit are cool. There are certain guys that always come threw with a perfect quality dvd rip, certain guys that always got the new tv shows up fast as hell, etc.

so I came to the conclusion that every site has it's strengths and weaknesses , some of them got them movies others got mixtapes etc.you gotta mix it up

Are certain sites faster than others or is it based on the torrent program or what? I don't know anything about them, I just got BitTorrent yesterday and it takes so long to download anything. It's much faster to just download something from Limewire.

Suga Duga
01-06-2008, 10:32 AM
I had the same problem with bittorrent, azureus....now I use utorrent and it works good (most of the time) but it also depends on the torrent-files you're downloading and the available seeds...I'm new to this too

Sean
01-06-2008, 11:06 AM
So utorrent is better? I'm completely new to this, I haven't got a clue what a seed is lol.

Storm
01-06-2008, 11:12 AM
If the torrent has more seeds than it'll download faster(I'm pretty sure thats how it is). And yea, it's based on the torrent itself, on how fast it'll download. I go to miniova.org for my torrents. You can use Limewire to d/l torrents too.

Sean
01-06-2008, 11:20 AM
Oh ok thanks. I just got uTorrent and it seems a lot faster than BitTorrent.

Oh yeah Storm, that Video converter you told me about is good, but the quality is pretty bad on some videos even with all the settings at best quality. The audio is perfect and most of the video is good, but it sometimes comes up with like big blocks of colour in the middle of it. Is there any way of making it better?

Storm
01-06-2008, 11:24 AM
It's the video itself not the program, you can contact the person who put the video on the internet and see why the video is like that.

Sean
01-06-2008, 11:29 AM
Nah the videos are fine before I convert them but then when I do, the quality drops. Most of them are .flv youtube rips and they start out good quality.

Really good program though, really easy to use, thanks.

Does anybody have a pass to undergroundgamer.com. Or something like that. They host torrents that contain the entire library of games for the Dreamcast & PSX.

Sceners Threaten to Destroy BitTorrent, “One Step at a Time” (http://www.rlslog.net/sceners-threaten-to-destroy-bittorrent-%e2%80%9cone-step-at-a-time%e2%80%9d/)

Posted on 07.01.2008 at 18:46 in Tech News (http://www.rlslog.net/category/tech-news/) by Mr. X (http://www.rlslog.net/author/mr-x/)
SuperTorrents recently fell victim to an attack by alleged ‘Scene’ members who revealed the site owner’s identity. Further action was promised against torrent sites and today another tracker admin’s life has been turned upside down. The attacker’s message: “Destroying The P2P’s, One Step at a Time”
At the end of last year Torrentfreak reported on the unfortunate fate of Ersan, the administrator of SuperTorrents. He suffered multiple security breaches which revealed his identity along with the loss of $2000 in donations. Scene notices (text files carrying news/other info) carried lots of the gory details, with one ending in a threat: “cellkill is next”.
It seems that “cellkill” - the administrator of Feedthe.net (also known as FTN) has become the group’s latest BitTorrent victim, exactly as promised. In yet another notice with the header “Destroying The P2Ps, One Step at a Time”, part of the justification for the attack reads:
Many have heard of him, but have never spoke to him, for a p2per word of him has come far as the scene. [real name removed], the owner of another torrent site called FeedThe.Net (FTN). His Torrent site steals thousands after thousands of releases from the scene, and then he has the nerve to go and say to other P2P’s STOP STEALING RELEASES FROM US?!??!? ILL BAN YO ASS! But wait, how is this even possible??
[real name removed] isn’t on the “Staff” page yet he’s still banning people, posting news and running the entire site. Mr. [removed], did you really think you were gonna leave without us giving you a goodbye present? Guess again ;-)”
The grim reality becomes clear as detail after detail of this admin’s personal life is revealed. His real name, date of birth, place of residence, personal email addresses, home ISP and IP address, places of education, friends, family - it’s quite a grim read. The claim that CELLKiLL is currently studying ‘Computer Security’ must pile on the embarrassment in spades. Family and friends who have also had their identities revealed can’t be too pleased that their FaceBook profiles are now public information.
Does this action against FTN signal the end of this ‘war’ on BitTorrent or will the MPAA and RIAA be rubbing their hands with delight on a regular basis? At least one other admin has been threatened for helping the admin of SuperTorrents after the original attack but there aren’t any more specifics at the moment.
The attackers left with this message: “We have yet again erased another torrent admin from existence. Other Groups, do your part to make the scene what it was in the beginning. Secure.”
My comment on the issue is that these persons who are participating in these acts of degradation represent only a small, arrogant minority of the scene. Within the scene comes some of the most talented hacking/cracking skills available, and these powers can either be used responsibly, or irresponsibly. I’m not to sure if the ’sceners’ here will actually accomplish their goal of making the scene more secure. The biggest threat to the scene is laws and legislation, police task forces and anti-piracy organizations who attempt to infiltrate and bust them. Second from this would be people who give out IPs and locations to the warez FTPs and sites that the scene groups upload to. Therefore, it does not make sense to find private torrent site admins and then give out their personal information. The P2P portion of the internet is more valuable to the scene then they think it to be, by providing a larger source for pre-airs, screeners, and other goodies. Until the anti-p2p pro ignorance attitude stops coming from some scene members (http://toptorrents.org/torrents/211057/Beyond.Loch.Ness.2007.WS.DSRip.XviD-aAF/nfo.html), this ugly and unnecessary war shall be waged for long to come.
