couldnt realy think of a better topic heading as its 06:30am here and i havnt been to sleep yet.
but all private trackers have passkeys in their torrents (or most have)
now lets take blackcats as an example.
you trade your ***** account for a blackcats one with a 100 gig buffer.
this is pointless in itself because it still might have loads of hit and runs and be kitty litter (cant download till you seed all of them back).
but the person thats trading you the blackcats account, goes and grabs 100-1000 torrents from the tracker before he trades, he trades with you, you login, change email and password.
you think, phew its all mine.
he then starts up those torrents in his client, could be straight away, could be in 2 months. maybe just 1 or 2 at a time, but as its got your passkey in, all the dl ratio goes on your account. and obviously he isnt going to seed anything back. so that 100gig buffer is gone in no time, and you have a useless account anyway.
and on blackcats, only staff can change someones passkey, the user cant do it themselves.
I just see all this trading going on, and think, there is so many ways to exploit it, but maybe im missing something.
