In computer terminology, a honeypot is a trap set to detect, deflect, or, in some manner, counteract attempts at unauthorized use of information systems. Generally, a honeypot consists of a computer, data, or a network site that appears to be part of a network, but is actually isolated and monitored, and which seems to contain information or a resource of value to attackers. This is similar to the police baiting a criminal and then conducting undercover surveillance.

If you don't want your activity to be known, use a VPN. You can use a DNS proxy to circumvent region restrictions, but without encryption your ISP can still monitor your activity.

There is also DNScrypt which to my knowledge is an encrypted DNS service. The domain name service, by design, is not encrypted so your ISP can find out your activity even if you're not using their servers.. So use a VPN or encrypted DNS

In the US at least some ISP's are monitoring bandwidth usage for the first time ( well have been for about a year ) since the days of AOL and pay by the minute. Even with encryption people here still can receive letters saying that they've exceeded the "customary" amount of bandwidth used by the average consumer and be warned or asked to pay extra.

In all honesty I am shocked I have not received such a letter myself. When I am online ( which is most of the time ) I am often streaming documentaries from Youtube or Hulu or watching Netflix from the PC. I know I easily chewing off 10 to 15 gigs per day of usage - and probably more.

Yes i love OpenDNS and you can use it on port 5353 to try to stop your ISP hijacking about 20% of your lookups even when you don't want to use their DNS server but in my case my ISP still hijacked the requests but you can always download a HTTPS client from OpenDNS to stop the ISP doing anything.

These ISPs are shooting themselves in the foot because they make revenue by selling our data and the way things are going everyone will soon be using VPNs at about $100 a year and this will screw the ISPs up who try to use local caching to reduce upstream bandwidth.

Ho yes I did some major research into IPv4 and we are far from running out of addresses with the USA having three addresses for each of the 350m population. Story in itself, Turn IPv6 off because its uses a Teledo backdoor to bypass security.

well illegal torrents are never going to stop its just places to get the links.

dont forget its completely legal to download a movie you actually own on dvd, are you telling me 'they' will check everyones house for the dvd if somone downloads somthing?

its all crap and as long as the greedy movie poeple push it the worse its going to get. its £10 for one ticket in the uk, a movie theater with 300 people in is 3 grand, dont tell me they are losing out. no one cares if they lose £5 6 months later on a dvd sale.

sorry but its true, there are bigger things to worry about online, like the horrible pedo porn and what not. 99% people dont care about a few movies.

Bandwidth monitoring and activity monitoring are different though. If your ISP has bandwidth restrictions it doesn't matter what service you use; the ISP will know if you pass the limit or not.

However, if you use a VPN to download some pirated file, your ISP will not know, and you will most likely never receive some DMCA complaint or lawsuit unless your VPN provider hands you over. (Unless your connection to the VPN server gets disconnected and you continue to download the file from your real IP).

Well our politicains can help by a start by not fiddling with our kids but instead they are trying to use both kiddy porn and normal porn as an excuse to censor the internet.



YT won't embed (Censorship maybe) so here is the link Our politicians at play

The stuff you or i would not like to see is mostly on the darknet anyway or other more secure networks so don't fall for the pack of lies you are being told

We come to protect, shoot to kill, shoot to kill

Weird, well they used the wrong term. It seems like they wanted to use psychological warfare terms, and picked the cooler sounding one, even though it was less appropriate

Hollywood is a hypocrite dinosaur that needs to be shoot and buried in an unmarked grave. they don't even make movies here any more cause of the wonderful California taxes. they support politicians that force them with taxes to film in another state. the actors make tens of millions a year and speak out about CEOs that make the same amount of money. Hollywood tells the common people the evils of global warming right before they get on their private jets. once they remade Red Dawn it showed they have no ideas and they are very desperate. desperate people render desperate deeds.

Still here with same ISP. Not a peep about those letters.

The first thing when I think about SONY is *not* that they brought us the Walkman in the 80s, but rather that they deemed it ok to install rootkits on people's PCs as a form of copy protection several years back.

See en.wikipedia.org...

In other words: Those people are scrupulous. Nothing good will ever come from them and people need to be wary of this.

This is exactly the kind of company which I can see that they would destroy the internet if in some way it would benefit them.

Yea, but there are a pile of hypocrites on this side , that will in one breath say "Destroy Hollywood" , but at the same time, their iPods are full of stolen music and later tonight, many will pull down a movie from somewhere that they want to watch, but not pay for.

It is just like about everything super controversial today.... There is no single solution that will appease everyone.

We would all say that we want the Internet to be free, but how realistic is that? The millions of miles of fiber and cable hooked to millions of switches, routers and servers. Do you think those are free? And how about the millions of programmers and engineers that invented and programmed them? Do they work for free?

I liken it to what some people do to NASA. They go to the only source where such certain images of our universe are obtained, and made available, and accuse them of not showing us the real pictures, and hiding or modifying the originals....

I think certain people are really the problems, not our technology. Now, let's talk about the state of our education system.........

Honestly, ANYTHING that comes out of Hollywood anymore, be it music, movies, television, is complete and utter garbage. I really wish it became a fad for people to read, learn, enrich their lives. Get outside and enjoy fresh air while we still have it.
That would show those greedy, life destroying, pieces of orange Hollywood crap. Either that or we can just wait for California to break off and fall into the ocean.


Its not just rubbish, its mainly propoganda. I won't even elaborate on what that propoganda is. Just think BERNIES [sic]

Exactly. Its all about controlling what goes into peoples heads.

I have always said that the governemnts wet dream to to reach a stage where you need a licence to publish on the internet.

Note the key word there is PUBLISH. They need first to create a precedent, the concept of PUBLISHING which has legal standing.

The point is, WE ARE NOT PUBLISHING, we a re THINKING ALOWED on the web. But if you get a FaceCIABook account you will notice how it says 'PUBLISH this post now etc, or things like that. If you publish you are liable to legal challenge, introducing law into the process of thought control.

Either way, they are nibbling away at all types of content providers and eventually I predict that you will need a licence to say anything.

This is already cubcontracted out to the FaceBook and Twitter central command. But they are also attacking other more independent players, like ATS as they are doing now by blocking its revenue. Mark Marek has been compromised to now.

This is where the rabbit hole starts.

I think your pontificating on the idea of free.

Free access to informationand free access to posting content.

The fibre lines are paid for by the bills for broadband supply. We pay for access to the internet. We always have.

However, the content was free.

Very much agree. Just take a look at all those crap movies hollywood barfed up post 9/11.. more of less disgusting.
The propaganda has been planted deep into peoples minds for the last 70 years at least.
Check out the documentary "Reel Bad Arabs - How Hollywood vilifies a people"
imdb
Its also on YT, but not sure if its ok to link. Google


ETA: Maybe the anti-piracy campaigns over the years have deliberately failed, so the propaganda can reach even more people?

Type in 72.20.39.176

In the browser and it will take you right too the above top secret website.

Use network tools website to find the actual address by punching in the dns name example "above top secret" then copy and paste addresses into a word document and save it for all your sites.

Try it

Taking down RNS/DNS can be overcome by using IP's. But looking at the general public at large, what percentage of those people would understand an IP much less know how to resolve one? Outside of the techie/gamer crowd most people I've met ( young and old ) need help simply downloading apps or configuring very basic programs.

If Hollywood ( or any other entity for that matter ) could kill RNS/DNS it would render the Internet largely a ghost town. And, while I realize that's a dream come true for a LOT of people... it wouldn't last. E-commerce is too important to the greedy. Thus they'd come up with some new and proprietary method of accessing content - a method that they would control and that we would have to pay out of the proverbial button for.
