Fighting fake and passworded files, the battle continuous...

Posted by Markus | 9 years ago on Monday 30 June 2008 16:17:24 to be more exact
We got a lot of angry emails from our loyal members these past days. It appears that a lot of fake files are being uploaded. We want you to know that we are in a constant battle and that we are continuously investing in new systems to detect and delete fake files. We already have a sophisticated system that is able to auto detect fake files (algorithms yummy...). However it's clear that this by itself is not enough and so we have added a second layer of administrative tools to our backend. This will surely reduce the number of bad files dramatically.

Additionally, we have also deleted 200.000 torrents that were dead/to small/suspicious etc. Meanwhile please keep commenting and reporting torrents, this is essential to the entire process. Maybe we cant get all of those bad files but if we all cooperate we can surely get at least 95%.

I also want to ask other bittorrent admins to open their fake hash database so we can all eliminate these bogus files and put an end to this crap. Our database is open upon request, feel free to send us an email, we'll send you the link.

Finally I want everybody to know that we are not the only site with this problem, we are working very hard to provide you guys and girls with the best possible experience.

Keep Sharing,

I love Seedpeer, thanks for taking care of us. I like your idea of sharing fake hashes with other admins, though I doubt those assholes are willing to cooperate.

It seems the last couple of files (get Smart and Wille) have both had a six second show stating you needed to download a Dom-x decoder the files where obviously a fake.

Nate74 9 years ago

I've noticed a lot of fakes are using the serverbeer tracker; whether or not this is helpfull....

I'll still comment...

Yes there has been a huge increase in fakes lately..

one thing be aware of the KVcd it is always password protected

delboy53 9 years ago

@addy-sidd-(FAKE TORRENTS) I would not believe the seed/peer figures as they tend to be loaded on one tracker, that is specialy generated for these fake files. Check "files/trackers" and see how evenly the seed/peer# are spread if they are loaded on one tracker that is good indicator of a dodgy torrent. Make a list of those trackers,and keep them for further ref.

Zero-K 9 years ago

I love the work that you guys have been doing the site to help everyone!
One thing that might help is to easily identify what torrent's you've downloaded. I know personally I close the windows after I download the torrents, then if I find they're fake, I have to go attempt to find which ones I've downloaded so I can report them.

Thats why we have the bookmark function, check it next to the tabs

All asking for you to go to a site for a password to unlock the Rar file

This one starts then shows a Incompatible Media Player error message that funny enough is in video format.. not a real windows media error message and asks you to go to:

May I also recommend that when ever you're capturing a film on camera, never switch to auto focus. Put it on manual focusing, I have seen a lot of movie captured by camera switch to auto focus and almost 50% of it has a blurred picture the camera is always keep on adjusting, especially on action movies.

Saw a comment that denis.stalker and sextorrent trackers are fake. Got a couple that were. Maybe they should be warned or banned?

Sick of this 9 years ago

looking through the site, and d/l ing a lot of stuff myself. every movie on the site is fake. i know it's not just seedpeer, it is every torrent site on the internet. EVERY site, and not a decent torrent anywhere, what is the point of all these fake torrents? do people actually fall for the credit card for password shit?
i guess its impossible to d/l anything anymore, FUCK YOU to every asian fraudulent faggot for taking over with these fake torrents. i hope your families die in a fire.

and also more horrific forms of death wished upon them.

anyone got any ideas of how to find something, anything worth actually downloading?

Leah 9 years ago

Yeah, sextorrent is always fake! yeah, please enter comments people - I always try to do so - fakes and passwords really piss me off! such petty children

Thanks Markus - Seedpeer is still the best! - you should be proud :)

HH 9 years ago

if you can develop a tag on torrents so we can get back in and id the bad ones to the site-now its too hard to find the same without pulling them up and checking the hash-thanks for your service

stef434 9 years ago

your having a laugh
still some torrents --hancock-get smart etc etc require you to go to a survry sute to obtain password--guess what no password at the end......BELOW IS NOW BECOMING A COMMON THING WHEN YOU UNZIP FILES

To obtain your password for this release, please go to:

We do this to keep the scene going by using the server to filter certain ip ranges :)

HarroldP 9 years ago

The New concept looks very positive, however I am having trouble accessing the site at various times. When i try to access it via a browser or SeedPeer's own torrent searcher software, I get redirected to google. Anybody else have this problem?

Damn, just got faked....

Thanks for the hard work Markus...we all appreciate you and your teams efforts


wythen 9 years ago

Wanted to know, should we be at all worried if we download a fake file? Do any of these files carry more malicious software inside them, or collect any information from your computer or any some such similar bastardry?

I think I have only been faked once, I was asked for a password and I guessed it, and got it right. What exactly does it mean to "filter certain ip ranges"?

I tend to use to download, because they give a choice of sites, which is how I stumbled upon But they seem to do quite well at keeping out the fakes somehow.

Jessica 9 years ago

This is terrible, downloaded a couple of movies and all I got is the infamous "" it's unfair :( I've been downloading it for days!

quadrupler 9 years ago

Your best bet to avoid fakes is to find releases that have sample files (i.e. "sample.avi"). In my experience, this always guarantees an actual release. It also adds the benefit of previewing what you're downloading.

Yes, samples make for happy pirates.

Lecto 9 years ago

Yep, I always download vidz from AXXO because of its quality and reliance, but now seems that these assholes are using AXXO´s popularity to upload their crappy movies. Someone could hack these websites and kick them off the web... just a thought.
Isn´t there any app that scans password protected torrents before downloading, so people wouldn´t waste precious broadband connection downloading and seeding these fake files?
Cheers from Sao Paulo/Brazil!

hi to all, and sorry if this is the wrong place to moan bout fake files but,new to the site and dont know too much - newbie as such. First off, fantastic d/load speed. Q1. I've downloaded Twilight and Four Christmases, and tried to watch in Window media player. they are wmv files, up pops a window sayiny "Media Usage Rights" and need a codec to play. Accepted the d/load and got a virus - BV:AutoRun-E (Wrm). So do you recommend a codec for these or should I use another prog to view.
Q2.I ahve downloaded from aXXo and FXG before and know the quality of their work to be first class but never have I had to use other codecs. Is this peculiar to these films or are they fake?

Vericap13 9 years ago

To Sick of This, try this link
every torrent is VERIFIED, avoid those UN verified and adult torrents. Those Crap still get into aXXo's private account. I can tell you, you will changed your mind in saying that "EVERY site, and not a decent torrent anywhere, what is the point of all these fake torrents?" That's what SEEDPEER is trying to fight, those BAD uploaders. Hope you will find movies you like in that link I have given you.

I feel sad to know others get angry because of this BAD torrents. I myself was in your situation before but I find ways to avoid them, and just leave a comment what I think of those torrents. I just hope SEEDPEER checks on the comments to know which torrents sucks and has to be deleted from the site. Thank you Guys for a good and hard job.
