Isp injecting fake peers


Recommended Posts

I was trouble shooting one of my korean friends pc, where he wasn't able to download properly from torrents.

After a closer look i saw that the peer list had tons of fake IP's. His isp was modifying the reply from tracker and adding in fake ip list.

I just changed switched to proxy & he was able to start download instantly, before this it took him hours for getting the download to start ; as the peer ip list he was getting was all junk/fake peers with 1-2 genuine ips.

Is there a way around this problem ?
