View Full Version : I Installed a P2P Blocking Package Tonight

If you're running any p2p software I highly recommend you install Peer Guardian or MoBlock. I run Azureus and see for Kubuntu's DVD and FreeBSD 6.2 just to give back to the community, and I've been seeing strange crap on the firewall logs. So on the advice of a buddy I installed this software which basically keeps a blacklist of known RIAA, MPAA, etc addresses so that when an app on your PC tries to contact them or they try to contact you the packets are dropped. No packets, no evidence collection about what you're doing.

I'll bet not 5s goes by that I don't get a blocked inbound packet from one of these snapperheads. Hell, I just got pinged by Time Warner Telecom and I'm on freaking Everest. These "Technological Systems CJVC" jerkoffs are incredibly persistent. You know, if you're going to write some software to sniff out pirates you might want to make it smart enough to not wind up downloading a bunch of s**t you can legally get for free.

Basically the "bad guys" will be able to connect to you and download the things you have (while you're seeding in the case of bittorrent). Given enough evidence they can take you to court.

Unless you're seeing performance issues (and you shouldn't) I'd run it all the time.

I'm on Linux so I'm technically running MoBlock, but yeah.

tail -f /var/log/moblock

Run that command in a terminal window and I get a running log as things are added.

As part of the install it will download the latest block lists. Then it should just start in Windows, I believe it's implemented as a driver. I don't have a copy of Windows to test it on and tell you, though.

I mean at the start of the setup when you click on the program it lists a bunch of stuff to check or uncheck....

That HTTP one bugs me it says it always always connections from port 80 and 443 even if they are in the blocked list.......I'm not sure I want to check that.

You won't be downloading anything over those ports anyway, and you sure as hell won't be uploading over them. It's cool.

And the P2P doesn't seem to want to update it "can't find the tracker" or some such.

Give it a bit, it's going to have to find new trackers. I'm not in the pirate rings, though I can see why porn guys might not want to block the .edu areas.

I like the theory behind the software but can't understand how it would be able to differentiate between a 'legit' peer at one of those IPs vs. someone trying to monitor what youíre downloading.

Iím unable to check out their FAQ section at the moment though however because of being at work.

Being a Bittorrent user though Iíll certainly look more into it package. Thanks

I only have Norton, it does catch cookies and tracking software, and now it removes them (it didn't used to, I would have to do it manually).

So my question is, how much sh*t am I missing with only norton, because every so many days there are only one or two tracking cookies. Not near the list of simplex (of course there is probably other reasons he has the interest of the UN)
