    important security announcement for OVH users on Mar-01-09

    OVH has been discovered installing root level backdoor access on servers (Windows admin-level included), and using the access to install monitoring software, without the client's permission or knowledge, which has not been verified as safe. As a result, Waffles is weighing a potential ban of OVH IPs from the site and tracker, but have not come to a final decision yet. Instructions for removal of the software and backdoor access can be found at http://pastebin.ca/1350404. These instructions may not result in complete removal, as they've been authored by a third party, and we have not had the chance to compare a stock OS install against a backdoor'd OVH installed.

    so the big brother is watching, through a keyhole this time, will check out ovh forum later.

    any thoughts from here ?

    after reading the pastebin.ca , seems pretty easy to remove their own software, especially on gentoo. therefore any decent ovh reseller should be able to do it.
    i know i will ask them in advance, and if they don't know what i'm talking about, then i'll move on.

    i don't agree with you but the amount of seedboxes (ovh mainly) i see in peerlist is kinda disappointing thesedays, especially on newbie sites more than 1/2 of the peerlist is seedbox. It makes me wonder if i'm sharing file with someone who'll appreciates the file or some buffer whore.
