Public tracker users often need to have their guard up when browsing through the vast selection of similar torrents at Mininova, TPB and others. Some torrents are password-protected; others contain malicious viruses, and there’s even fake torrents to lure in unsuspecting torrenters. Even a new torrent that contains an impressive seed-peer list may look ripe for the taking, but even these offer no security. Finally, for the first time ever, there’s a public tracker that actually checks & verifies their torrents before offering them for download. Introducing Vertor.com, a revolutionary next-gen BitTorrent site where every available torrent is checked for downloadability, viruses, DRM and passwords.
Cool Features at Vertor:
Everything Gets Downloaded — VerTor.com checks each and every torrent file, and tests them for “100% completion” ability. Stuck torrents or torrents that don’t connect or complete are not added their database of indexed torrents. Also, everything that contains archived files (i.e. RAR or ZIP) is extracted, scanned for passwords and viruses - and a filelist is created.
Screenshots of Video Torrents — Video/movie torrents are also extracted, tested and screenshots are made (from various points of runtime). While this isn’t a definitive solution to detect bad encodes or unsynced audio/video; however, DRM media screenshots will turn up blank.
Audio Samples — Audio, MP3 torrents are also tested, and a 20 second clip of sampled tracks are available for preview. Handy for checking music files for high bitrates before downloading them.
Text Files / NFO Files — By default, text descriptions and NFO files are included with each torrent. NFOs can be viewed without the need to download the torrent. Look for the “Read More…” link at the bottom right.
Torrent Uploading — Simple, just register with Vertor and start uploading! Be advised that there is currently a 2GB size limitation imposed on uploaded torrents, since anything larger cannot be scanned and properly indexed.
Check Torrents by Hash — We like this!
Got some old torrents lying around, or torrents from other sites, such as Fenopy.com? You can hash check them to see if they’re listed in the database. If so, it’s a good torrent!
HTTP Downloading Through BitLet — If preferred, users can download torrents via HTTP through BitLet. Useful for computers that are torrent-blocked, or can’t install a BT client.
Currently, Vertor is about 90% completed, and still in beta. Some of the features may not work correctly for another week, we’ve been told. Definitely worth bookmarking! There’s already a very impressive list of 140,000 verified torrents, many of which are found at Mininova and ThePirateBay; with the exception that at Vertor, they’re certifiably clean.
Surely not… have a look at this:
100% verified 0.2MB .exe file for aXXo’s Dark Knight? I don’t think so.
shoul I lol on that ;last comment?
or this site wants you to get malware on your computer by the looks of theyre website tests..
I think the idea is to not have password or viruses in files, it can be fake or not
How the hell can they verify 140,000 files …? It must be automated which means they haven’t actually done this. Also I’d like to know if they run exe and archives - if they don’t malware may be crypted and not detectable.
Better than nothing though.
An easier solution is to use private trackers offcource. Lame public sites with even more lame kids uploading their shit lawl.
