As you might remember, a complaint was filed against Newzbin2 by the British MPA, which accused the service of encouraging illegal file-sharing. As a result, a London’s High Court judge ruled that the largest British Internet service provider BT should block all access to this online service.
Despite the fact that this is scheduled to happen somewhere in a month, some are afraid that the censoring measures had been already implemented because of a breakdown in one of Newzbin2’s DNS servers a few days ago. The problem in question was quickly fixed by the Newzbin2’s team. Meanwhile, late last week TeamRDogs, the party behind the service, introduced Newzbin Client 220.127.116.11, promising to circumvent any filtering system like BT’s Cleanfeed. Newzbin2?s Mr. White announced about the launch of the first Newzbin2 client software, which was targeted specifically at British users that were likely to get blocked next month. Although the first version is a little raw and not that polished, the party promised that as time goes by they should improve it and add features.
The introduced application features a basic interface allowing to access Newzbin2 site. Currently, the software is only available for Windows. The party explained how the system works, noting that it uses some techniques that are able to utterly defeat Cleanfeed. The software features Agility Technology to help it to break any updated Internet censorship methods or anti freedom countermeasures. Security experts have already tested White’s statement, confirming that the system is really working and is able to defeat known features of Cleanfeed.
The report of the industry experts makes it clear that the application presented by Newzbin is trying to resolve the website’s domain name to an IP through DNS. This is followed by an encrypted session, which is standing between the application and Newzbin2’s site, in this way making the purpose of Cleanfeed futile.
Aside from this feature, newly introduced Newzbin application allows access to the Newzbin2 site through the Tor Network, as well as a number of useful links to Internet resources like IMDb and most popular search engines. Despite the fact that the application is currently in its early stage of development, we can expect future updates.

|LOL, BT's security bypassed before it's even out!|
I wonder how much that fiasco cost them, or how much of the cost will be passed on to their customers?
