I don't understand the negative votes: this site is a good demo that you can be tracked by anyone, including cops. It's also very informative: if you are listed, then you use questionable torrent trackers.
If you use cox, or any proxy it won't be accurate. If you IP address is dynamic, it won't be accurate. If you have an open or weakly protected wifi, it's probably accurate. The information is all public information.
Does not take transparent proxies in account: I get different results depending on whether I visit via HTTP or HTTPS.
This site is a clever, low-budget demonstration of the amount of information available to anyone monitoring BitTorrent traffic. It simply lists activity associated with a particular IP address. No attempt is made to associate a particular user with a specific set of downloads.
This site shows publicly viewable information. Seen information may be incorrect in that an IP is usually reset every 24h but that still doesn't make them a lie. Furthermore, they explicitly point that out.
I really cannot comprehend the privacy concerns around here. It's just a messenger showing information which could still be easily collected when the site didn't exist. Collecting such information is done every day by big media companies without that site's help. In contrast, this site could be useful raising awareness of the users' own privacy, showing them how easy they could get trouble if they were too careless.
Shooting the messenger, however, is just wrong - and in that case is most probably even counterproductive.
PS: according to torrentfreak the site does not add any more data as it was purely created to raise awareness: http://torrentfreak.com/busted-microsoft-harbors-bittorrent-pirates-1205... "The site’s founders inform TorrentFreak that since this mission has now been accomplished, they have stopped adding new info to the site."
This site is a demonstration of how torrenting is NOT private. It's doing a public service. Do people understand that? Tagging the site as "bad" is like arresting someone for telling people that they have an unsafe neighborhood...
one of the developers replies to dynamic IP topic:
"...we don't bother ourselves to separate dynamic IPs. The site is just for show. However we have time-stamps. 22.214.171.124 might be a dynamic IP - however it belonged to a certain person at 12:12am 12/12/2011. Besides DHT allows us to get a user's machine fingerprint. So even if it's a dormitory..."
Most of these comments and rating are retarded. The site explains everything it is and the reliability of the information. It doesnt need to "account for dynamic IPs," because there is no accounting to do. If it says an IP downloaded something, IT HAS. dont get all pissy because the information is now easily accessible by the public. if it says your current IP downloaded something you havent, who cares? The GOV wont use that site anyways, but they will get the same info. the only "hard" you could see is if someone you know personally sees something shady under your IPs history. Oh noes.
Don't kill the messenger! This site merely shows you what others already know about you, so _not_ a privacy issue (that's like saying FB is a privacy issue after purposefully posting all your pics and messages publically).
However, the site is not "perfect" yet, and eg. does not list any torrents for me, though I torrent heavily (albeit mostly on not well known trackers).
Enthält Social Plug-Ins von dem in Deutschland wegen Datenschutzrechtsverstoß gefürchteten Facebook. Wäre es eine deutsche Seite, könnte man sie verklagen, weil sie das Plug-In nicht legal eingebunden hätte. Aber da sie in den USA ansässig ist, kann man nicht sagen, sie wäre illegal...
... Daher kann ich deutschen User NUR ABRATEN, die Seite zu besuchen, insbesondere, wenn sie noch nicht bei Facebook Mitglied sind.
