All torrent sites rely on seeders, people who effectively donate their upstream bandwidth to provide content for others. Some go the extra mile and use a seedbox, a server-based piece of kit that pumps content into torrent swarms enabling faster downloads for everyone. While this is seen as a good thing by the majority, a private tracker specializing in high definition content has just introduced a set of the toughest and most baffling seedbox rules ever to grace the torrent scene.
A seedbox supplier is warning of a serious bug just discovered in TorrentFlux-b4rt. The exploit, found by one of their customers, allows a user on a shared server to obtain torrents uploaded by other users. This enables the attacker to obtain another user’s unique passkey and masquerade as them on private trackers
A seedbox is BitTorrent jargon for a dedicated high-speed server, used exclusively for torrent transfers. With a seedbox you’ll be able to download and upload faster than you ever imagined. Additionally, you can manage your torrents through a browser from anywhere, anytime.
