Reporting on illegal content

by Guest on 2020/06/18 04:01:02 AM    
I'm new on Fopnu while browsing through users found somethings that i'm pretty sure is illegal. So I was wondering if there is some reporting mechanism available.

the makers of fopnu have absolutely NO control over what is shared on the network.

this thread may help you:

Pretty sure it is illegal?
Says who?
In what country?
What law?

Are you assuming this based on the title added to a file? Any title can be altered/created.

Also, just so you know, many seemingly "illegal" files are put up as bait, by state actors/law enforcement. Honeypots.

On the practical side, i would assume that many, even most, of those who are doing something that is deemed illegal in the country they live in are masking their identity by using VPN connections.

Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters? And then tell them what?

If that illegal file is something that people should really know about, like proof of what the secret societies are planning for the planet and proof of who belong to these groups, then you should report that file to people in channels feature so they can download it ASAP.

If it's something that p€d0s are after, then there's pretty much nothing you can do. The elites that run this world are part of that group and protected.

The other day I found three people sharing child pornography. I wrote down the time, their IP and port number. I entered their IP on a whois site and emailed their ISPs.

My concern is that this issue is only going to get worse for Fopnu and especially more so for DarkMX since it uses Tor. I don't want to sound like I'm blaming the developer or saying that he encouraged this. I'm not! ..but it's still a concern I have. This is a difficult problem to deal with because you don't want any sort of cp filtering to end up censoring users. As an example, if it was up to the community to flag a file, people could misuse it and vote against files they don't agree with or like even if it's not child abuse material.

Looks like you are also doing illegal stuff like getting files you didn't buy. So who should report you?
Besides you can only prove it is illegal after you check the file and in that case, you already commited a crime because you had to dowload it. Not to mention you shared it while downloading it. Perjory is also a crime. And,,, its a crime in what country?
Better mind your own business. Face the fact that most of the content here is copyrighted. and if you are after it, you are a criminal too.
So be a thief with honor and don't $h1t in others plate.

99% of the time if the file is named as such it's usually safe to assume it is real and report it without checking/download. If the file was named as such and is fake then it is probably a troll or from LE. Although I doubt LE is really looking at fopnu. Most people will agree that distributing cp is much worse than distributing copyrighted stuff so I don't buy the you are a thief too argument. The point you make about different laws in many countries is good and I'll give you credit for that one.

Yeah, it sucks, but this is the world we live in. I always make it a safe thing to only break one law at a time, never two or three at a time. I just mind my own business to be honest... and real talk, it's most likely a Honeypot. What kind of dumbass would name their file "Child pornography inside!" or something similar. I mean think about it. If you were a pedo, would you name your files like that? Much less put it on blast for people to see and download freely? It's like hanging out at the corner store and asking everyone in sight if they would like some drugs... But who knows, honestly. I know one thing: my ass ain't getting near that file. Just like feds on RainbowRoad...

Sorry for bumping this old thread, but what I have to say is relevant.

I was searching for movies in another language on Fopnu and I accidentally found some illegal files. I didn't download anything. I entered their IP in a WHOIS service and emailed them to let them know that one of their customers was distributing CP. Sometimes I report directly to the ISP and other times I report to the cybertip site if it is an IP from the United States. At first, I thought they were an ISP when I sent that email, but they weren't. I have verifiable proof that at least one law enforcement agency is monitoring Fopnu users that attempt to download CP. The law enforcement agency is called Kripos and they are in Norway. They run multiple instances of Fopnu (or their own custom implementation) on port 6960. I welcome you to verify this for yourself but don't download anything.

I don't know if the files are real but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they were because I saw multiple users sharing the same file. This isn't the first time, a law enforcement agency has done something like this. Remember the time when the FBI continued to operate an illegal deepweb site after the original operators were arrested? They used a JavaScript vulnerability in an old version of Tor Browser and did this just so they could arrest visitors. Anyways, the point I'm making with this is they continued to distribute it even when they could've stopped it and shutdown the site. I think the law enforcement agencies that do this are just as bad as the predators themselves. Instead of distributing it themselves they should just track down the IPs of people who already upload it. (I'm not saying they don't already do this.) Even if this causes some of them to be arrested, I don't think an LEA distributing it themselves makes it right or justifiable. This is why I am calling out Kripos and letting people know about this.

A few questions/ideas for the Fopnu developers.

1) Will you add the ability to hide search results from blocked users? If I block a user, I shouldn't be seeing any of the files they're sharing. One more idea I have is to let people create a file name filter list using regex. I understand that how people use Fopnu is not your responsibility but at least please consider this idea because it's disgusting and I don't want to see it. I'm not explicitly searching for it but sometimes it still manages to shows up.

2) Have you ever been asked by LEA to provide details on the Fopnu protocol? If so, did you?

For transparency, here is a copy of one of the first email I sent.

Your customer is using P2P software to distribute child pornography. Here is their information and a screenshot with a list of file names. The screenshot does not contain any thumbnails or preview.

Port: 6960
Time: 5:13 (UTC)

Thank you.

For transparency, here is a copy of the last email I sent. I haven't heard back from them and I don't expect to.

Please disregard my previous emails. I didn't realize that you(Kripos) are a law enforcement agency in Norway. I thought I was sending my abuse report about CP to an ISP. The IP WHOIS service I used made me think you were an ISP. I am sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused. It was my fault for not double checking this first.

I have a few questions I would like to ask, if you don't mind, and if you are able to answer.

1) Are you using an in-house/custom implementation of Fopnu? My reason for suspecting this is because I thought it was odd that the port number(6960) was the same on all of those IPs.

2) If you are using an unofficial client, how much of the Fopnu protocol did you implement? Did the Fopnu developers provide you documentation about the protocol or did your team have to reverse engineer it yourself?

I'm asking these questions because I attempted to reverse engineer the protocol myself but the encryption made it too difficult for me and I gave up. If it wasn't encrypted, I probably would've been able to.

I would appreciate hearing back from someone, but I understand if you cannot talk about this.

Thank you.

I didn't see the obvious question in this thread, if I missed that, it bears repeating. Did the Poster and anyone running into this situation ASKED The Purported Source If They Were Aware Of Sharing Alleged CP or Lolta Files.

Many would think a source would be aware of sharing a CP file and be very much mistaken especially when those individual sources have mistakenly enabled automatic downloads of sub-set torrents buried inside a popular torrent file.

If you are going to all this trouble to end up yourself on various watch lists by trying to alert various agencies regarding possible CP content then first have the professionalism to ask, mail, contact the source and ask them if they are aware of the alleged CP files.
