Ho. I recognized an attackfield inside of the emule network. I heard from people who get paid for uploading damaged parts of files to let the bandwidth stuck!
For Example: You are downloading a file and u only need 5MB to finish the file. Now you see in your queque many people which have finished the file and many more who have only the last few MBs. The Problem is that the some people upload fake parts to people. Their waiting list is set to a small level (such as 100) so you wont wait to get their defect parts! In a few hours you will see many people which has the faked parts.
In your Emule it looks like:
Downloaded Part 13 is damaged (Name of File)
Downloaded Part 45 is damaged (Name of File)
Downloaded Part 75 is damaged (Name of File)
Downloaded Part 23 is damaged (Name of File)
Downloaded Part 54 is damaged (Name of File)
Downloaded Part 22 is damaged (Name of File)
This side discribes the problem in german GoldEselBoard. They point to a system to block these user from getting asked for your files. This System is intergrated in Emule since v26b.
It is a file called ipfilter.dat you have to copy into your /emuledir. You can get this file here.
My Idea is to add a funtion to emule where you can decide between:
1. downloading only from people who have finished this file 100% and
2. from anyone else!
The main feature is to walkaround the problem described at the beginning.
I hope this funktion will be added soon! I need this funtion to complete some files! from the last 2 month!
Sorry about the bad english
