Thread: rarpassgen virus

  1. #1
    Has anyone else noticed that most of the tv shows posted are coming with a rarpassgen that is a bad virus?

    After more research it seems someone has a bot or something going that downloads things and repackages them with this file. I normally use supersearch so maybe thats why I'm finding these. Maybe I would be better off just using nzb's from this site? 3 of the last 5 shows I tried all have this virus.

    I'm almost to the point of cancelling my usenet after this and the comcast limited unlimited garbage.

    I haven't noticed any of these viruses in the tv shows I download. I use the nzbs from here and supersearch.
    I mostly download 720p though, is this in the xvids?

    seems to be with any type of tv show. I've seen them bundled with notv, lol ,0tv, and others. Its quite talked about if you google it which is why I'm surprised no one here has mentioned it.

    antivir xp notifies me as soon as the file is extracted.

    So they fool people into thinking that they need a keygen to generate a key to open the rar?
    Some ppl are just asking to get screwed. I'm sure they can get rid of some beginners by doing this but it has to be some ppl with too much time on their hands.

    Yes i have seen this on a notv repack. The file is rared as usual then when you unrar you get another single rar file. To unrar this it requires to to run the exe. I bailed at that point. But it does seem this shit is on the increase.

    Just checked the posts, they are coming from download2day servers. I sent an email to them, if they know who posted it then hopefully they'll sort it out.

    Though I noticed this on their site:
    Uploading at this server is completely anonymous, so we do not register any data you upload or where you upload it from

    And there was no sign of X-Trace or anything in the post relating to what user posted it. That's a shame because they most likely won't know who is doing this
