Does BitLord do same (bad) things as BitComet


Recommended Posts

BitLord IS BitComet, so yes

But if BitLord is only one version "0101" - then is it necessarily the same as 0.59/0.60/0.61 BitComet which produces the problems?

In other words, I've been led to believe that it is only in the latest few versions of BitComet that the bad behavior occurs.

So, what might I say to people who run private trackers to convince them that they also need to ban BitLord as well as BitComet ?

In most cases, it was the DHT leak that prompted them to ban BitComet in the first place - the other issues may be harder to "sell"...

reporting haves means nothing, you know that right? they do absolutely nothing :/

It's a bandwidth saving feature to not send HAVEs back to the peer/seed that sent you a piece, and the BT spec itself tells you that relying on haves is a bad idea.

Not reporting = OK

Lying about haves and bitfield = not OK
