Failed Hash Checks


Recommended Posts

hi everybody

i have got an idea how to improve the detection of which peers are sending bad data. as it seems now, if a piece is downloaded and fails the hashcheck, utorrent increases the counter of hashfails for each peer which was delivering some part of this piece. in general there will be only one peer (or two or three but not all) which is sending bad data.

my idea now is, that utorrent keeps the bad piece in a cache and compares it after downloading the same piece successfully, with the good one. by doing this you can see which peers have delivered wrong data and which not and the chance of banning someone for sending bad data who didnt send bad data will decrease (hopefully to zero).
