Forwarded from Frost's freenet board: Set up 5 nodes on 5 different ISP's. Dedicate two of them as insert nodes, and the other three as fetch nodes.
The two insert nodes continually generate 300KB files from /dev/urandom and insert them into Freenet. They keep track of the keys corresponding to the junk they insert, and publish them to a private database accessible only to the other nodes in the poison-net. The three fetch nodes are set to have 500 hosts in their routing tables instead of 50, to have a broader reach on the network. They continually fetch random keys from the private database (junk inserted by the 2 insert nodes) and request them. This makes the contacted nodes (remember we have a pool of 500 to affect) think the junk content is popular, and it stays in their store at the expense of less requested keys. Now consider instead of 2 insert nodes and 3 fetch nodes, there are 10 insert nodes and 40 fetch nodes. Do you think 50 computers scattered around the world is a drop in the bucket to RIAA, MPAA? Before we know it a large portion of everyone's datastore is full of pure shit. So when will they attack us this way and how do we fight it? _______________________________________________ Support mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://news.gmane.org/gmane.network.freenet.support
