Well, this isn't good.
3 big name cappers: YS2YSUOe1cLtf, 92JeyRfcya, and YnXmHqtxqS by Share ID were arrested by Kyoto police for sharing anime.
Once PD is perfected people will stop using Share, then the police will crack the encryption, then the cycle will repeat, etc.
This isn't anything to worry about. You can't stop piracy.
Yeah, I mean seriously, this is like two years old
What's it like in 2010
Other people will take their place. Remember, these guys watch anime constantly. They've had it burned into their minds to ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWA
Still no fucking jetpacks
funnily enough YS2YSUOe1cLtf is the capper who put Gurren raws up in 20 minutes on Share.
Go and see anime related p2p boards on 2ch. Even Japanese already gave up using p2p to get current anime shows. Guys living in rural areas are whining, those coming from the Tokyo region are off to buy DVD recorders.
YS2 is apparently a big loss from what I hear. This is fucking unfortunate.
No shit, he put some of the highest quality raws up on share.
92JeyRfcya was doing it back on Winny and carried over to Share.
Looks like it's time to dig up the next latest and greatest japanese p2p system.
Any idea what the exact method of tracking was?
They've got a tool that can differentiate, apparently, between files in the upload and files just stored in the cache on a remote Share node.
If you catch it early enough you can probably also single-source the download. Bam, you've got your guy.
google@sharebot or eyesoft
how do i used trackerless torrents lol
I sort of see. I don't want to speculate too much about the technicalities, but is PD really any safer than Share in this aspect? Or maybe the less the technical aspects are discussed, the better.
Poor moonfolk cappers.
I'd seen mention of Sharebot somewhere but I thought it'd been defeated already...
supposedly it is, but i don't know any of the technical aspects.
Then again, security through obfuscation of the protocol and encryption of the binaries doesn't really mean squat as we can see from the copyright protection on games and the way our pirates have with those.
Serves them right for using a shitty p2p software client like Winny.
Japan needs to get on the Bittorrent bandwagon.
1. They were using Share, not Winny.
2. BT is just as, if not even more trackable. I'd tell you not to spout shit but hopefully someone with more knowledge will definitely correct you.
FUCK DA PLS
The Japanese TV rippers should learn from their Western counterparts: upload the raws to private or darknet servers, then have some shady Russians (or whoever the Japanese police have the least chance of getting to) put them on Winny/Share/torrents.
lol daytime /a/
There is no security in obfuscation of method in modern technology, and anyone trying to use it deserves to get their shit fucked up.
unfortunately the nips are too stupid to realize this :/
Wait, you're seriously telling me Share and Winny were security through obfuscation designs? It is IMPOSSIBLE to have any sort of security that is based on people not understanding how your program works. These things are meant to be designed such that even if you know exactly how they work it is still incredibly difficult to break or trace, like RSA and stuff. I need to look into this.
Yeah, pretty much. It is a little better than simple obfuscation techniques, but when you get down to it, that's exactly what they are doing.
It is similar to the gnutella only you have to add nodes manually, via hashes of the IP. I cant speak for their new client, perfect dark, but currently share has been broken wide open.
But who wants to do that? Anime is not as popular as music or other main stream stuff.
