That sounds great. Looks like we found an exploit.

Thanks Dan, for initially coming up with the idea, and Pedro for
following through with it.


Pedro, regarding the 160-210 seeds you mentioned below, are they mostly
MS causing the inflation or are there a lot of regular users on it? Just
check if you see mostly IPs in blocks or individual IPs. We'll do more
analysis on this ourselves later on.

So I've checked the decoys below which were renamed to "the simpson
movie" release names....and they result with 160-210 seeds across most
of our posting websites. As for Piratebay, MediaSentry's
interdiction/inflation does not work (it shows only one seed). Well,
we can now use this resource to post on Mininova without ever using any
of our trackers.

  So I verified our little test subject from our last meeting.....
Turns out that MediaSentry did interdict our decoys below. Plus they
inflated the numbers of seeds for the decoy with the public tracker
(which started with 1 seed from my seeding machine) and now its showing
for now....and who knows when Mininova will catch on......


Decoys (Spiderman torrents) were initially uploaded to torrentportal,
torrentreactor and bitenova only ....


Decoys were renamed to "live free or die hard" torrents and uploaded to
Meganova, worldnova, Mininova, and Piratebay.


Results are still pending for Piratebay, as you know they take days to



Decoy with our tracker


Decoy with a Public tracker,0/Live_Free_Or_Die_Hard



Any Questions? Please ask, its Friday....

      I uploaded the following decoys to Bitenova, Torrentportal, and
Torrentreactor.....which I hope MediaSentry will scrape. I'll check in
a day or two to see MediaSentry's presence. One decoy has our tracker
and the other is a public tracker.
