BitTorrent Clients Used by FBI to Target Child Porn Sharers

BitTorrent Clients Used by FBI to Target Child Porn Sharers

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is using modified BitTorrent clients to track down and prosecute the sharers of child porn. The clients are configured to download complete files from a single suspect in order to prove that the suspect has the illegal content in entirety in their possession, rather than accidentally have a part of it downloaded together with another torrent.

As you know, file-sharing networks and software are used to share all sorts of files, including pornographic footage of children, which is seen by the Department of Justice in the US as a high priority. These cases have successfully been prosecuted in recent years, many with help from P2P file-sharing software.

A few years ago, P2P apps with shared folders, like Limewire, allowed the law enforcement authorities to pinpoint infringers sharing unauthorized files. At the time, the evidence was strong and resulted in many convictions. Since popular “shared folder” clients are no longer available, FBI had to switch to BitTorrent to find someone sharing such files. This is how they do it: law enforcement can search the BitTorrent network in order to locate users sharing previously identified child exploitation content in the same way a user searches this network. The FBI and police use these search engines to find torrents that are known to link to child pornography. The law enforcement agencies then load the torrent files in modified torrent clients and receive IP-addresses and other information from the associated trackers.

It must be clarified that the software in question is modified in such a way as to download a complete file from a single source to ensure that the file-sharer has a full copy. For example, in the recent case a search by FBI special agent led to a Simi Valley individual, who was later arrested and indicted by a federal grand jury.

Aside from distributing child porno, a follow-up investigation often can unveiled further details – for example, the recent indictment alleges that the file-sharer also took 83 images and three videos of a 6-year-old girl with his smartphone. Now he faces lengthy prison time for producing, distributing and possession of child porn.

Thanks to TorrentFreak for providing the source of the article.

analogkid6103 avatarGreat that they can target and nail them(CP users). That being said... I also see how it could also be used to target other Criminals such as Copyright violators. I wonder how long it will be until we start seeing prosecutions using this tech.

Inpurisnatura avatar"the suspect has the illegal content in entirety in their possession, rather than accidentally have a part of it downloaded together with another torrent."

Wait. Are people who have child porn on their computers actually trying to say that they accidentally downloaded it by mistake while trying to download another (non-child-porn) torrent??

I'm not sure about any of the rest of you, but I have NEVER accidentally downloaded porn of any kind.

I can't imagine what kind of files you might be downloading that would come with bonus, or accidental, child porn.

Is this just some excuse they're using or are there any actually true cases of this happening?

No avatar"You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time" .

Self incriminating "Bear Baiting" and "Honey Traps" using decoys. The police by law are forbidden to use real kiddie pron. These style of fake "honey traps" generate the highly questionable probable cause warrant. Police forces universally claim; "we are protecting the people", Thus, it is a variant of false flag security!

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety,
deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

We live in a world driven by real numbers.

Some are very big and some are very small long odds.

The problem lies, in that certain crimes have the easily fooled ignorant and weak in the mind living in absolute fear. Causing these unfortunate loud mouthed shout at every window weak minded individuals to irrationally shake at the knees. Irrespective of the very long odds involved.

Ironically, there is a far more widespread violent prevalent crime.

One which causes far more trauma to the victim.

It is not an addiction to kiddie pron.

As for many law enforcement agencies and public prosecutors. Nearly, all to the last fool standing, routinely give the actual majority of perpetrators, a "Get out of Jail Card" for free. Also play hang the victim too! A truly shameful behavior and poor security on offer, by all those "Who Serve and Protect".

Talking logic, facts and figures to the weak minded one mononeuron a thought a time window shouter individual has zero effect. In reality their basic irrational fear, completely over rides all common sense.

IrishMcDaddy avatarDumbDumberandheystoopid could you do us all a favor please? Instead of trying to show off all your high brow linguistic skills - why dont you reel it back a little and use actual everyday english? This isnt a college exam paper that accounts for 3/4 of your overall grade. The content of your post was fine it was the mind numbing read thru that wasnt..

Ok now on to the article itself.. I`m super happy they`ve found a way to back-track all these pedo posters of cp and string them up by their tiny little nutsacks BUT as others have pointed out... That`s been proven time and time again... Once they`ve rounded up all the pedos they will no doubt move on to other offense violators sharing torrents.. My outlook is enjoy and share the goodwill why you can because as i`m sure all of you know all good things in life unfortunately eventually come to an end!

No avatarI doubt that you can get cp over torrents ,the only way to get it is to go to those darkweb pedo forums which are very rare now because FBI closed like 99% of them

No avatar@DumbDumberandheystoopid Unnnnn Ok you gud with Gramer!

Now seriously what you posted completely missed the point original article.

The whole point of it was how Law enforcement was using modified Bit torrent to download a Complete copy of Pedo file from a single Sharer to prove they had the entire file. So then they could get warrants and chase the needs to be curb stomped twice a day every day pedo bastard down.

You pulled the baiting article out of your ass trying to look smart and relevant, there's always some on here like you, Trying to Be the Voice! Most users seem to ignore them till they end up spouting something really stupid and then it ends up like this comment section.

No avatar@Inpurisnatura I've accidentally d/led shit I didn't want in a movie pack before and I've also accidently d/l shit I don't want at all with a miss click and auto add enabled. So ya its possible but to be seeding that is Sorta fishy.

IrishMcDaddy avatar@Inpurisnatura I have to agree with what was posted by MagisD.. ALTHOUGH I personally have never downloaded content that turned out to be something truly salacious ((of writing, pictures, or talk) treating sexual matters in an indecent way and typically conveying undue interest in or enjoyment of the subject.)<<<--- Lol I ended up having to look up the word to make sure I was using it correctly.. I HAVE clicked on a link that then turned into a site I was definitely NOT trying to access that had pictures of that nature on it and I quickly closed out my browser.. Then after thinking about it I tried the link again so that I could report it and it went somewhere completely different so it is possible.. BUT to have files in their entirety that you are also seeding with a history of like content in whole or part I would say speaks for itself.. Like I said in a post above alls good on that use till they run out of em to get and start focusing on less questionable torrents

Inpurisnatura avatarI know we've all downloaded something thinking it was one thing and gotten the old "bait and switch" or downloaded something and the torrent creator added a little something in it we didn't know about - and didn't ask for. However, I highly doubt that "something" was kiddie porn.

Once, I downloaded "Snakes on a Train" by accident. (not bad, actually, once I watched it). And granted I don't download a lot of porn, but again, I just don't see someone downloading a regular ol' porno flick and getting kiddie porn as a bonus.

I think the "I didn't mean to download that" excuse is just that - an excuse.

Inpurisnatura avatarBTW, DumbDumberandheystoopid, you may be able to string a lot of fifty cent words together, but your punctuation is horrible.

No need to try and be a show-off. Tell us what you think, but please say it in everyday English. I've really found that the people here love a good comment, even if it differs from their own opinion. It's just hard to counter someone (or even agree with them) when you have to wade through their prose to try and understand the crux of their argument.
