    Question Mark

    Hi there guys, whilst d/loading a particular torrent, i noticed that my peerguardian was going crazy with connections from safenet.inc and an american barracks that were being blocked as well as "possible media sentry" attack. Suddenly, i noticed a new list in my blocked lists that said permanent blocks as the description but was allowed!!! Getting further details i found out it was the safenet.inc and barracks ip address as well as Time Warner. I have blocked this list, restarted my machine and connected to the net not d/loading and this list has just re-appeared and allowed itself again, I'm getting slightly worried

    I recommend you put your hard drives in a barrel of acid, change your name, and move out of whatever country you happen to be in. better safe than sorry

    Really? do you think its that big a deal? I wasn't seeding anything at the time so surely they can only of seen what was being d/loaded? I did consider running eraser on my HDD yesterday but decided I was feeling overly paranoid......

    So I closed all ports, banned everything that I felt should be banned within PG2 and deleted all possible sources of the attack (all media that i had d/loaded since the attacks started)

    Still, not getting caught would be better than having to trash everything..... I know I am a noob so please don't take advantage of that and tell me that leaving the country is my only option!!- I would like to know the possibilty of recieving a cease and desist.

    I'm in the UK by the way and thanks for your help so far

    Ok, real advice (ignore the other two) :

    Hell with it. You messed up, sure. But how badly? Not that badly. I mean, you were unprotected by PG for a few minutes, and were not seeding correct? Really, sounds like no big deal.

    1. Don't leave the country/kill your computer.
    2. If your really really paranoid, law low for a while.
    3. Usually what happens is your ISP sends you a letter, you don't just get sued in a matter of seconds.
    4. Any of this information could be inaccurate.
    5. Don't let no. 4 worry you.

    ... really, if some people seed/download shit like crazy, without PG, and nothing happens to them... the odds of anything happening to you are pretty slim.

    EDIT: Also, your not in the USA, less to worry about. And assuming you weren't downloading the next big movie of the year, that's also less to worry about. Don't wipe your HDD clean, you'd feel really dumb if you did and nothing bad happened...
