Yeah, every now and then we've encountered this problem. But I think the
torrent team have been pretty good about this lately (labeling their
decoys properly). Only way to be certain is if the torrent team goes
through our test results and recognizes that some of the hashes we're
marking as "real" are actually us.

I don't think we need more detailed results from QA. But with old
school decoys I thought there was a problem that those don't (or maybe
just usually don't) get entered into a database.

To determine real vs fake, we use the hash/torrent identifier. All of
the below techniques are grouped in a generic category of "old-school
decoy" in the db and that's how they get reported as in our results. If
we want to differentiate between these in our test results, we need
better inputs in the db by the torrent team. Sounds like the torrent
team needs a better process to organize what type of torrents they're
posting where. That will in turn allow us to report more detailed test
results

Tabish,

 

fyi....

is your team aware of this? how does this get considered in your
download testing? are you filtering out hashes you know are ours?

Ben,

 

Old School 50-75% Real. All files are complete except the main avi
(movie file) which is inflated with 0's and 1's to make the file appear
as those it is complete. User may open may open the file and play the
avi.

 

Old School (screwed and chopped). This varies. It can be a combination
of these things:

a. audio is out of sync

b. movie contains a trailer (takes place of portions of the
original movie)

c. Language is switched intermittently (Russian/English).

d. Deleted scenes. Important scenes are deleted throughout movie.

e. Reduced quality video. (Pixilated, blurred, inverted video,
etc)

Pedro, Mark, Herden, Rendy, Gerald and Niles,

 

How are you liking your new digs by QA?

 

What kind of chopped and screwed decoys have you made? Just briefly
describe what they do. For example, "cut off last 20 min of video,"
"resynched audio backwards," "dubbed 'piracy is illegal' on all fighting
sequences." Just take a first pass of letting us know what sort of
techniques you've tried.

 

Thanks,

Ben

There was an overall increase in today's effectiveness except on
Mininova, Piratebay and TorrentSpy. The real files that do show up are
primarily at the top of the list with thousands of seeds/leechers. There
were a few new real torrents that showed up in today's testing, and
those have been added to our interdiction system.
