F'N Passwords

Postby carcassfan » Tue Mar 01, 2011 6:38 pm

Is it just me or has there been a large influx of password protected posts on usenet lately? I hope these posters get aids and die. :pissedoff:

Agreed.

I DL a lot of TV, so I always get it from same username, first posting. Later ones tend to be passworded RAR files.

I just started noticing a huge uptick in it fairly recently. I've been a usenet junkie for prob 10 years or more so I know what I'm talking about.

It has to be 1 of 2 things. Spam/malware or fucking retards actually password protecting their legitimate posts (which is unthinkable to me as this would serve no purpose whatsoever other than pissing people off).

They are all fakes, and the "games" all try and load spyware on your system.
Just tag the nzb as bad.... don't bother trying to decrypt the file.

Passworded files on usenet is a real pain in the a hole. Appears more an more shitty nzb sites using the ploy along with mass spamming of the groups. Personally i feel premuim providers should stamp down on shitty sites mass advertising with passworded files or low stand content. Shame is thise dicks turning usenet in to as unreliable as BT came with shit like this.

I agree. Even posts that are not flagged as passworded on Binsearch sometimes have the password protection. All of those posts should be filtered out.
