You my friend are an idiot. Snooping? Find me a web server that doesn't contain logs, particularly for services that require authentication and don't specifically state they don't keep logs.
I think he was referring to this:
I caught him cheating on his wife based on computer forensics I did for her and some network traffic tapped on their network at her behest.
Although without further explaining the situation surrounding these "computer forensics I did for her" and "some network traffic tapped at her behest", it's hard to tell. If she's the customer and pays the bills for the network services you provide her, it's probably OK. Not sure if the users need to be warned that their traffic can be analysed though, as I'm not a legal expert. But I wouldn't be surprised to find that there's a legal obligation of notification, similar to legislation surrounding security cameras.
Did not bother to click it; the summary and the many comments saying "it doesn't work" make it sound like the site itself is click bait.
Nope, just new. My data is accurate, but only goes back to mid December. The way the site works is it participates in torrents on public trackers to get a list of peers. How else did you think they were able to access that data? And it appears they haven't been in business for very long, and aren't participating in all torrents yet.
But if you think this is cause for alarm: it's what copyright holders were already doing for a long time. They don't know anything about you that the RIAA/MPAA/BSA/... don't already know.
Thank you, but please learn to hyperlink. Makes it a lot more convenient for the others here.
That's only true when your at home.
Please, fix your grammar.
I use public trackers but my IP is blank. I only recently started using a VPN, so my public IP should have records. This is likely either new or some sort of honeypot.
It's new; my history goes back to mid December.
I checked this site out of curiosity, and all they're doing is scraping trackers and recording the information. Nothing different than the publicly available data the movie and music studios have been gathering for years to issue infringement warnings. The only novel thing is they are making the archival information publicly available.
Exactly, amen. I was kinda bothered by the last part of the summary:
It's not clear whether this site is really revealing the information it claims to -- or whether it can filter out the fake IP addresses provided by many downloaders. But putting that aside, it does raise an important question. Is it technologically possible to build a site that tracks and reveals torrenting histories based on IP addresses?
Yeah, if you ignore the information that's clearly presented on the site, under the "About Us" section, then yeah, it's pretty unclear how they perform this feat of magic... Lazy editors.
ps: I can confirm, for my IP it also doesn't have anything past Dec. 17, 2016.
Leprechauns are racists. I don't support racists.
Actually, if they paid you $7.99 to watch it, racists would support you.
How's the weather in Soviet Russia?
Then you didn't see Zombie Movie. It was the first released on steam as a movie... about 11 years ago.
You can probably find it on youtube.
Oh yes, that one was good.
Also, Kung Fury, another free one, also pretty hilarious if their particular brand of stupid humour appeals to you.
