Fake MPAA/RIAA eMule servers
p2pnet.net News :- The entertainment industry has taken its efforts to crush the p2p networks a step further by trying to swamp eMule.
Online scalp-hunter MediaCentry has set up fake eMule servers to try to try to trap file sharers, says Joseph Farthing in a Methlabs post which, though a month old, remains relevant.
MediaCentry is joined at the hip with both the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) and the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America).
“The servers, which were all hosted in the United States of America, were listed in a number of commonly used eMule server lists,” says Farthing, going on:
“Although it is not clear how the servers managed to slip past administrators, it is apparent that around 98000 people were using just one server before the problem was spotted.
The servers have been removed from many lists already, http://www.gruk.org/list.php and http://ed2k.2x4u.de/list.html are currently proven safe.
