I love stuff that's "all mostly" some characteristic. It makes me warm and fuzzy.

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.

UPDATE:

 

  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 165+ on Mininova....WE HAVE EXPLOITED MEDIASENTRY"S RESOURCES....well 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 update....

Ebert,

 

      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.
