Private tracker sysops & admins may have a brand-new headache on their hands with Ratio Faker. Self praising, “Ratio Faker can help you keep a good ratio in private bittorrent trackers.” Actually, Ratio Faker is a new third-party utility that can (and probably will) assist you in getting banned from your favorite private trackers. It works through your existing BitTorrent client by reporting inaccurate upload and download stats to the tracker, thus boosting your ratio. Hey, at the very least you’ll go out with a good ratio, before finding yourself unable to login.
Ratio Faker works through an HTTP proxy (127.0.0.1) which must be set in the BitTorrent client, say µTorrent. Once this is changed, run Ratio Faker and use the same port number.
Randomized Upload Ratio
Unlike GreedyTorrent - which doesn’t allow for users to select a random modification ratio, Ratio Faker will report a random value between a pre-configured set of numbers. It offers the possibility to generate a random value in every announce, like in a real BitTorrent transfer scenario. In theory, this would make it much more difficult to detect.
Does it work? In a word, yes. We tested it with both uTorrent and Vuze, and it successfully does report the downloading torrents as ’seeding’ on the tracker. Because of the randomness, actual stats varied.
Will it get you banned? We’re really not sure, but it’s not worth the risk.
Should you use Ratio Faker? Not a chance. Do it the honest way, like everyone else - BitTorrent is for sharing, not cheating. If you’re looking to become a seedwhore, go out and get a seedbox.
I personally say its a bad idea to even make this public. Bit torrent is nice because you don’t get screwed by the music industry, but now we are just going to screw each other?
Site admins donate much of their time to running the site, now they are going to have a new headache because people aren’t willing to share with those who share back.
“There is no honor among thieves”
upload problem Says:
I implore everyone to utilize these tools especially at trackers where it is near impossible to upload (i.e. What.CD)
It’s a shitty thing to do, but in the end why not? If you don’t care for the movie or music industry, why care for the admins who are raking in thousands of dollars each month.
Torrent Site Ops. are not distributing and pirating media because of any moral obligations they are doing it for the money.
Do you have any idea how much money they make? They are merely masquerading behind a donation sympathy bar. Forcing us to pay to buy uploads, and invites.
The ethics behind the use of these tools would be lengthy. But anyone who’s planning on using spoofing tools, use it responsibly. Don’t start spoofing 1TB/s, your id will fall in the Top10 and you will be banned. If you stay under the radar you will be fine.
Anyways if your planning on even spoofing, be prepared to get banned.
Why the fuck are you posting this here? There are dozens of cheats and ratio modding tools out there, so why does this deserve being posted; you’re only going to get more people to use it.
Really fucking lame.
meh, whats so bad that they posted it here?All the people that think that it aint ok to see are gonna go to their private trackers, use it and get banned. No more ratio cheats. ftw!!
Yeah, I’m not sure why FSF is publicizing this cheat tool, only to tell you not to use it. Why give it exposure if your stated intention is to stop people from cheating?
Evryone have brain to think with it, if you do not need t cheat dont’t, if
you having troble to keep good ratio in some trackers due to stupid ratio system use from time to time.
P.S. Sedd Box ??? It’s not worth it to pay for such thing if you are not a uplouder or or tracker owner !
“Should you use Ratio Faker? Not a chance. Do it the honest way, like everyone else - BitTorrent is for sharing, not cheating. If you’re looking to become a seedwhore, go out and get a seedbox.”
If you’re really not into using it, you shouldn’t post the information about it…
On one hand you tell us not to use it and on the other hand ur making the info public, thanks to u ..alot of ppl will get their accounts banned.
6y5, this place just about info for people who use trackers, remember that. Bringing it up here brings it to the attention of owners of trackers, thus they know what to look out for, and can ban those dirty little ratio cheats.
FSF would in no way encourage people to cheat the system. Encouraging them to cheat as a way of getting banned may be a different thing though…
I LOL’D Says:
You guyz are all goofs…. if its hosted on blogspot its already public not on some password protected hidden page. At least this is warns peeps not to use it unlike their homepage which says it’s your friend and good for yuor private tracker acct.
Kidz, grow the fuck up. Fucktards.
One Cool Fucker Says:
This is one of the more detectable tools
Awesome stuff - and no it is not detecable, I tested it on my own tracker and it works superbly! Actually, I don’t really see any way it *could* be detected atm as long as you set the random value limits reasonably and don’t use the option of setting files to be “seeds” before you’ve finished downloading the files.
This is great, I can’t wait to use this on BMTV, ScT, SCC and GFT - I can use my seedboxes for other accounts now! xD
This is just the stupid. First you explain what it does, how good it is and how to set it up and then you say “But don’t use it! It’s bad!”. What’s the point of explaining how it works then?
Just delete the article. It will do more harm then good. Hypocrites.
What.cd Admin Says:
Sharky your an idiot for posting this.
Rest assured any ratio cheating at What.cd will be detected and dealt with accordingly.
This is a proof that no one can be trusted.
shame on you, sharky !
don’t forget that if you’re found ratio cheating on one tracker, you’ll be banned from all the other tracker’s you’re a member of. the admins get the word out quick of ratio cheaters, invite sellers etc.
i think it’s a good article, although it would have made more sense to cover a few different ratio fakers, otherwise it gives the impression that RatioFaker have shot you some moolah to promote their product.
ignore the people that say “you shouldn’t publish this” sharky, FSF shouldn’t be loyal to any trackers and should just give the information that’s out there, like good independent journalism.
We detected and ban users that try to use this all the time at RandomBytes. I can’t believe you are promoting that piece of crap. By writing this article.
How could you post this and then say its bad?
Thats really fucked up.

MAKE SURE YOUR SECURITY IS ENOUGH, CAUSE I’LL CRIPPLE IT.
I dont know what is the point you published this article though I have some points to say
Tracker admins say they catch traders and invite sellers ok how many of invite sellers had been banned I know the answer still there are lot of invite sellers on sct few days ago I had made inviestgation myself and had given full proofs to sct mod to ban one user I think they had not banned them because he is a donor
Another thing is if SCT is really against invite selling why the site is giving invites to the persons who had paid the money?Are these people think we are sick or what
For me the best tracker is bitmetv,tl,scc,bcg they have best system though sometimes I had seen they had also banned some honest users but they are giving invites to powerusers which is a good thing which will make lot of encouragement
But coming to sct they are selling the invites and saying dont sell the invites outside wow what a retared persons
HELL YEAH TORRENTS LAWL
I don’t know who posted 015 • What.cd Admin Says: above but it certainly wasn’t myself or the other administrator at What.cd.
However I do feel that your posting this article was a mistake. Your readers will try this at What.cd at Waffles at BMTV at HDbits at whatever private site they may use and yes rest assured they (you reading this right now) will be banned. Ratio cheating is not taken lightly and it is easily detected. It does not matter how little or random your cheating is, if someone else isnt leeching that data you cannot upload it.
Thankyou fsf. I will use this. I mean, I’m not compensating any creators of the files I’m downloading, why should I compensate the people supplying them. I’m against copyrights, against paying for things and against fairness. I’m going to take everything I want and screw everyone else
I reckon the idea behind posting this, is it’s actually easily detectable, all the cheating slags will start using it, and get insta-banned, since a private tracker sysop already designed this to secretly send identifiable data that the user is trying to cheat! The more I make this shit up as I go along the more feasible and the more of a good idea it sounds…
You can’t seriously believe that there’s only 1 Matías on Facebook.
Matías is a common name un south america …
just saying …
You can’t seriously think that the name was ALL he went on when finding that profile?
FSF is promoting something that they say not to get. Point to this? It would have no publicity if it weren’t for FSF
I use private trackers SCC, GFT et al. I read the article. Understood the article. I have no desire to try it out.
But cheers for the article sharky
I think someone should create a fake ratio faker.
Undetectable - bullshit.
Our site runs scripts monitoring all traffic:
* it compares your upload speed to a database of possible speeds available on your isp,
* it checks if the claimed speed is possible by cross checking to other peers
* several other methods which I ain’t telling
Try it out, i’ll sit back laughing while I ban your sorry asses. Believe me, we’ll catch you.
no edit button so double post :/
as mentioned above, get banned from one site - get banned from em all. We have a place where we share all the info on you cheaters/traders etc. Contrary to what a lot of people believe, staff from different sites do actually talk to each other and share information for the good of the community as a whole.
thanks… have had trouble finding a good ratio faker for a while to keep my ratio in balance on my trackers and this is a huge help because my up bandwidth is 10% of my down so it indeed helps to not get banned/disabled cuz of low ratio.
Thank you again… would not have found it if it where not for you to post of it!
Black Wolf Says:
I remember one of the admins of a private tracker that I log on to every now and then gave a user a warning for cheating on his ratio. Not a good idea, this.
SYSOP (Hidden) Says:
FOR #22 TO 26
I JUST FUCKING UPGRADE OUR SCRIPT!!! BECAUSE OF YOU FUCKING SHARKY!
YOU’VE JUST LOST OF OUR FUCKING PRECIOUS TIME, FOR THIS FUCKING SHIT!
CAUSE ILL FUCKING KI*L YOU,
WE WILL SEE, WHAT HAPPEN NEXT, SHAME ON YOU MUDBLOOD!
lemme know what I do, lemme know what I think, lemme know who am I. ( ihackerz )
SYSOP IS A PRICK Says:
Calm the fuck down. You act like a friggin 12 year old. If you are a so called Sysop, which I believe you arent - then you will know that there have been several ratio cheater programs for the last few years. Ratio Faker isn’t the first and it certainly wont be the last. So if you were truly aware that ratio cheating took place - you would have optimised your site regardless and not wait for this piece of news to drop before you act like a 12 year old, go mad and then come back and post that you optimised your site - lame!
@ fake wannabe sysop = EPIC FAIL
There are not many Trackers and Admins hosting in the US.
ALL I CAN SAY IS LOL LOL LOL .. sharky u shudn’t have done this .. not a lot of noobs will get to know about ratio faking .. hahaha .. extra load on site admins now ..
sharky.. again?.. wow..
I accident 26458PB.. what do I do now?
Yes, there are many ways to which to snag people for cheating.. the obvious being uploading highspeed to no leechers. It’s pretty pathetic how many people actually do this.
Wouldn’t know why you would need to cheat on sites like what.cd either.. it’s not all that hard.. 26gb up within a few weeks

[…] here were your new best friend to get tracker banned Ratio Faker: Your New Best Friend To Get Tracker Banned | THE source for BitTorrent & P2P Tips, … __________________ If my post help U out,plz rep me i need a need […]
are u all retarz RatioMaker , RatioFaker , RatioMaster , TorrentRatio , … dozend of this programs exist since ever even on Softpedia. Its to stop selling Ratio values to members. There exist also a opensource project for this tools. This is nothing new.
For those saying not to post such as this: THIS IS INFORMATION AGE and FSF has every right to give the information as much as we do.Be educated; grow up.
The use of this software is a different view.
Well, in any case, what’s the point cheating? Gives no self respect anyway. And we love the challenge!
OMGZ I R TEH DUDE THAT IS NOW OVERREACTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
who gives a rat ass if sharky posted this.. its on the net and i seen links to it 2 times before sharky posted it.. how do u get shit patched? by publicly releasing it.. and this site is pretty damn public.
Some of you tards need to get a grip and if your a sysop at a tracker it shouldn’t take you to long to figure out how to catch it…. ( if you release that method now that would suck )
anyways.. get a grip.
Maybe filesharefreak should change it’s name to filefreak, because apparently they don’t give a fuck about sharing
This is where public trackers shine, You don’t have to bother about share ratio and crap!! Guys…… stop using private trackers, they are unsecured. and switch back to public trackers again such as http://www.mininova.org etc. look how many servers we have http://www.mininova.org/servers.php
RF is one of de best toolz, man.
I’ve been cheating since conception and the only time I’ll stop is when Hell literally freezes over.
ONE of the points that you discover about cheating is finding a good hard to cheat-on tracker (very few around, if none at all exist) that becomes an addicting challenge to attain an even higher ratio than you had, before you signed out.
is FSF against torrenting or what? its indeed a headache but why the hell are you posting this?
cheater in sct Says:
i have been cheating on sct for about 2 years and have cheated about 8TB’s of data staff are so stupid that they never catch me
and i have cheated 12TB on hdbits also
Cheating on ScT Says:
i recommend to use this tool on ScT
i have about 6 TB upload — all done by NRPG Ratiomaster!
@54 was the best comment so far
Hey sharky, I think its time to disable comments and only allow registered users. This way you can ban, all the fuckers.
I actually went out and tried this, it does work, Just dont over use it.
I put it on max [ 100MB up er 1MB down ] I had ~ 500 MB Dl’ed and 50GB’s before I got banned.
If you are going to use this, set it EXTREMELY low, even a 1:1 seems to high. Maybe set it .75:1
i have used GT to cheat for ages and only got caught on one site because i got greedy and set the data too high.
you admin are too lazy to search your database of members for cheats.
thanks for posting this info..
this will give a good exposure for the people to use it..
btw if u use the rratio faker or any other ratio cheater ,set it to low speed and also the speed should be varying ,and also use it with torrents that have max leechers..
u wont get banned for ratio cheating if u do it right..thanks sharky for posting it.
then u r good to go..
I really do hope you get caught, whoever uses this and any other cheating method that maybe lurking around. If you haven’t got alot of money and you can’t afford a seedbox, it is hard enough to try and compete, without having this added pressure.
Sharkey if you had a brain you would be dangerous. With you publicly showing people how to cheat it is effectively hurting everyone in the long run.
Sharkey, I don’t know what is wrong with you lately, it seems you want to hurt everyone, by not thinking of what you are allowing on your website.
thans sharky I never knew this tool before. Ihave tried on what.cd and vary good 45gig upload no proplim. I am tryin on scenetorrent vary easi 86gig lol
vary easi to use guys
Old news there are far better ratio cheating tools out there that ARE undetectable
It was very foolish to even consider posting this.
You should not let this become famous (more than it is already). I can bet with you guys that A LOT of people saw this post and downloaded the program…
i manage a private site and we do check for cheats as its a very small community its relativly easy to spot as 90% of the files on my site are only grabbed by 30/40 peers who all seed to the rules we may be small but we have a good dedicated team of staff who actually do there jobs and no i do not make anymoney what so ever i manage the site on my spare time like a lot of staff do there volunteers!
the owner pays the site bills out of there own pocket and teh donations we do get go towards the seedboxes a lot of private sites barly make enough in donations to cover the bills you will be surprised at how little they do get.
and people using cheats and those 2 who cheat at sct i hope to god you get added to the multi private site global ban when you get caught and you will because your all too cheap to share what you get
I love how all the cute widdle tracker admins shit themselves over these utilities… yet, where are these assholes when people like me–who start out TRYING to be honest–get fucked out of many GB of upload stats? i lost track of the times i uploaded for DAYS only to have the tracker go down for hours or days at a time… or the tracker is up, but something is wrong, stats aren’t being credited. and it’s “too bad, so sad, asshole, stop your whining”. but you can BET YOUR ASS you’re still held to that ratio when it’s NOT in your favor!
why the fuck are all these people player hating sharky? you going to start cursing down on google?
‘fucking google, showing people how to cheat!!’
get a grip, i’ve never cheated and never will, these apps weed out all the kiddies getting greedy uploading 100gig in an hour for bragging rights. Use it get banned it’s simplez. they will eventually catch you and once you go on the global list you can kiss your career goobye and renew your membership to blockbuster.
so fucking what, these apps where prolly designed by software makers to create this shit storm amongst our community.
No matter if you’re pro at cheating you will get caught in the end, if you’re a n00b then it’ll be within the first week.
Maybe some prv. trackers should give more back to the community and offer a freeleech every so often so the guy/gal who doesnt have the speed can actually get a chance to upload rather than go down the path of cheating. Seedboxes have completely ruined the community in the past year or so with people needing to cheat to survive.
Site’s should limit seedbox’ and run their own
Seedbox is an accepted ratio cheat when the cash for them should be getting spent on donations which the staff should then manage a sustainable amount of seedboxes soas people can actually seed.
That’s why i fooked off p2p and went newsserver, the seedbox pushed me out.
Random Sharer Says:
Seed boxes are sweet, they make it so that people with no seed box can max out their connection.
It makes it so that even torrents with a few seeders left can help vast amounts of people attain their files at lightning pace
The trick to any site that is heavily seed boxed is to take advantage of their free leech on mass, create a seed bank and let the good times roll.
A healthy dose of constantly seeded packs will earn you a buffer in no time.
STOP trying to censor the internet everyone. I think that , alot of these posts are actually a trick. The amount of people that are here saying it works etc is hilarious, most of those are probally the sys ops themselves trying to TRICK you into using the program. The admins dont have to search for SHIT. The scripts in place, measure data thoroughly and detect inconsistencies with ease. THAT is reported to the admins and mods, then action is taken. If u really think that programs like this cause major drama’s ur wrong. They dont
They are a wonderful tool created by sys ops of very exclusive sites to fool DICKHEADS into trying to be dishonest, cheat and get banned. It is a program that weeds out the untrustworthy in private communities. Simple as that.
Whether the above statement is true or not, whether this program works or not ( try it out for yourself and see , Muahahahahahahaha ) the fact is, that internet is one of the last independent forms of journalism in the world that is uncensored and not tied into peer pressure politically. Let it be. Stop trying to CENSOR everything for fuck sakes.
It starts off small but grows into a big fucking problem when u let it happen. When u google Tienanmen square in china u get pictures of happy smiles and an event free day. U cant access face book in iran now……..
Censorship is a fucking plague of the free world that is the tool of people who cant handle the truth. Journalism is meant to be unbiased. This article was biased by telling u NOT TO USE IT. Think about that.
no i cant say Says:
i f****d all bit torrent site with this, and some happen with me…
if u boost the tracker, and suddenly u remember that it will make ur account disabled so just restart ur pc from button dont go from start or like that or turn off the power suddenly so ur update wont be sent to the tracker
only 100 kb/s upload Says:
you are right +!
what the fuck?? i hate you fucking cheaters,who dont have the brain or patience or dignity to
share back what you take, i hope you all get banned from all your trackers
i will do my best to catch you thats a promise
This is so funny how use this when they got Torrent Ratio Keeper with will bust you ratio and will never get band because it act like a seedbox . they will half to stop every one with a seedbox to stop Torrent Ratio Keeper lol
Haha, I’ve leeched the hell out of most of the major private trackers and I’ve never been caught. Keep trying suckers!
thanks from holland :0
Torrent Ratio Keeper is much better and much more options. Cheating is sooooo sweeet with it
i’m having a problem with the ratiofaker
every time i open it tell me in the log view that there’s an 404 error
and tell me to check the log
and in the log i get these and i don’t know what it means

please help me???
Look, the reality is that most ISPs allow much slower upload than download. Up is expressed in Mbps and download is in Kbps because that’s the fact. So it is impossible to get decent ratios unless for every minute downloading you sit and wait for 100 minutes for the upload to get even with the download before you can start another torrent. So for a ratio of 1:1, no matter what your upload speed is, it is in fact the same as your download because it won’t just take the short time to download, but also the long time to upload before you can move on to another torrent. Otherwise your ration will drop. Its’ ridiculous that people can’t do this simple math and see that it is not a matter of being a good member, a decent ratio is actually impossible for anyone but those connected directly to the backbone and not through an ISP. So regular people have to cheat because they can not possibly maintain a good ratio otherwise. So do the math and stop acting so superior, you ratio nuts!
Whoops, the words upload and download are reversed at one point. Sorry.
I would never try to deceive my Demonoid brothers and sisters with this cheatware (Just saw it on YouTube and didn’t even know what it was). I am proud of my honest ratio at the best site in the world: 2.45 (506.13 GB/206.38 GB) and, like most of the people commenting here, I would hope that anyone caught using this crap be banned. It defeats the whole purpose of the torrent scene. Now at Demonoid, while frowned upon, you are not penalized for a poor ratio. We take into consideration that some members have crappy bandwidth, that’s why the ones who have it to give pick up the slack for those who don’t. The only time someone gets scolded for having a poor ratio is when they beg for more seeders…. a definite faux pas.
I also find it funny that you are STEALING from companies that make movies, CDs etc and now you have admins of those site bitching when you steal from them. Part of the problem is seed boxes. I am on a very well known site and I’ve uploaded 250gb of data. Of this 243GB is MY DATA. That means in 18 months on one of the worlds best known sites I could only upload 7GB. This despite that every single torrent I DL I still have an my computer runs 24/7 a week. Why does this happen? Seedboxes. I can see someone start to leech from me and I look at uTorrent and it says 2% complete. In ten minutes it’s at 90%. It shows two complete seeds. Well it seems the other seed has a seedbox. So I have lose. OK fine, I accept this, but the point is, I’ve seen people on this site with a TB of uploads and 5 or 6 gb of DOWNLOADS. This should also be acceptable. A good torrent site, everyone should be giving and taking as much. Every ratio should be as close to 1:1 to create the optimal speed and distribution. Sites owners never realize having too much UPLOAD is also a bad thing.
well now they showed me how to cheat i will cheat like hell but sensibly.. btw i upped 10+Gb in 2 days, NOT BANNED!!!
Actually its for people to decide … I now own a seedbox but i dont always …being a student in a country like india it really means a lot to put 1200bucks for seedbox and 700bucks for a 384kbps connection monthly and i mean bits ….. and I do use these cheats only when i dont have a box but i do let the torrent remain active at least for 2-3weeks on my PC… So I use this only to maintain the ratio with a weak connection amongst the dozens of 100mbits and 1Gbits boxes .. SO MOST MIGHT HAVE THE MENTALITY not to share but few have the mentality to share but the high rates of internet really cost a lot even if he wants to share…..
