I am sorry if I have missed, but I have read sites rules, FAQs, etc. but couldnt find anywhere that torrents are scanned before they get uploaded.

Any clarification on this plz?

If Some Uploader Want That People Should Trust In My Uploads Then Definitely He will Scan His Software Before Uploading..!!

Yeah as PsYcHaYoGi says.
Also you are best downloading software from trusted/verified uploaders who should be responsible to check/scan there software before uploading. But this can not always be checked 100% by ET staff.

Another common misconception of software torrents having viruses is due to poor anti virus programs(I find AVG can be bad for this) picking the crack for the software up as a virus. This is due to the coding in the crack being written in the same way as a virus.

Look for the comments on the torrents, and you will gradually find the good/reliable software uploaders. Also look at the size of the .exe files and compare them with the .exe files on the offical software site, this sometimes helps weed out the bad software torrents. And if your AV picks up a virus from a crack, then google the name of the virus, sometimes you can tell if it is harmless or not.

And lastly anything downloaded from the internet is done at the users risk and should only be downloaded if, you are confident that your AV is good and will protect 100%.
I find Kaspersky Pure and malwarebytes does the job for me.

Thanks for detailed explanation big A.

The reason I am asking is that not all people here are IT geeks. Also its difficult to figure out who is good/bad uploader.

The biggest problem is (as rightly pointed out by big A) is that cracks are detected as virus. Now its difficult for non tech people to know whether there is really any virus or not.

I believe that the success of any torrent site depends on how trustworthy the uploads are. I know all kinds of shit being uploaded at PB and others and thats why I prefer extratorrent because I think its still safe than other torrent sites.

I also understand that it would be difficult for ET staff to individually check the torrents, but I guess the admins are quite smart enough to figure out some way to keep upload safe and clean.

Just my two cents... Cheers

Basic knowledge is a MUST if you're downloading anything from anywhere ... otherwise DON'T download.

Getting a virus on your PC nowadays takes a lot of talent. Different programs from ANTI-VIRUS software to SANDBOXES have been designed for the NON-IT geek to stay protected, and for those who know what they're doing we've got stuff like API Guard , Joebox, Anubis , Zerowine ... and then for the geeks we've got FUU , W32DASM , OllyDbg and a beut Syser Kernel Debugger


All our TRUSTED uploaders are given this status for a reason , and we monitor and check random files from time to time and act on any comments or PM's from users claiming or throwing accusations at uploaders.

Snotlob, if you can give me a heads up as to what/who/when/where , i can follow up on it and let you know if it was the software itself, or if it was hardware related.
