How safe is it to torrent games on The Piriate Bay from users who have a green or pink skull on their profile?

Is 1337X safe?

yes, but go safe and use the qbittorrent search plugin or better, jackett

Here's how you torrent games safely from public trackers:

1. only download torrents with intact releases, meaning they still have their rars (those files ending in .002 for example)

2. install 7zip so you can right click files on your computer and get a CRC32

3. go to srrdb.com and search the release you just downloaded. can't find it? delete that shit

4. compare the CRC32 of several of the rar files with the ones on your computer

5. everything matches? congrats, you've got a trusted scene release. checksum doesn't match? delete that shit.

now you can download games from anywhere and know it isn't infected with a virus or something nasty

The more popular a program is, the more likely it is packed up the arsehole with viruses, check filesize against the legal version if you want to really be safe, if something is smaller than it should be it's always a dead giveaway for me, if its not a program always do the
>Control F
>.exe
>no results found
because music and videos don't play in an .exe and the only reason they would have an exe is to infect your pc
if a game tells you to install anything you didnt ask for, it's probably a virus, so don't do it, there are programs you can get that allow you to run viruses without being at risk if you want to test a download first, and that's usually a safer option, but not as safe as going to a better website

I've been using the pirate bay and torrent aggregators for 15 years now, and I have never caught a virus from a torrent

>>
>>991138
shit, it's 1337x(dot)to, its still trash but its ok for a public tracker, if you want to be a pirate the safer way, find private trackers that moderate shit autistically
>>
Whatever you download, always upload any .exe files to virustotal. GOG Games are good to download because the .exe is digitally signed. (right click properties - check for digital signature)
>>
>>990591
rarbg and only scene releases
>>
>>990591
Use a private tracker.

Torrenting is so complicated bruh, especially navigating all the clicks and extra shit it says to download. 1337x isnt even activating downloads.

2020 and nzb still the way to go.
>>
>>993164
You must be clicking the download buttons. Those ones are a complete scam. You need either the torrent file or the magnet link to start torrenting.

Don't torrent games. Just buy them. inb4 useless broke fag complaints. Just because someone or an organization has good track record doesn't mean that their intentions won't ever change or that they won't get hacked. You have NO IDEA what is in the software. Anyone who tells that it's practically "safe" is an ignorant retard who thinks they're a computer engineer because they've been running win 7 for over a decade now. You want safe software? You need get it from a reputable vendor that conforms to security standards. CRC32 should only be used for detecting data corruption and errors, and isn't safe to use for checking signatures. The best way is to use asymmetric encryption to fully ensure that the software hasn't be altered in any way. The reason they don't use public/private keys is because the people who torrent software are fucking
dumbass normies who aren't IT/CE experts.
>>
>>990686
Static resources can used to hack your programs too. The payload would simply be data in the music file or w/e. The payload might not even be detectable at face value. If there was a small glitch in a video you were watching, would you be suspicious enough to check?

Things have drastically changed in the last 15 years. Though it's harder to hack a modern OS, doesn't mean it's impossible.
>>
>>991121
Yeah, and use a VM or emulator for an extra layer of protection.
>>
>>993373
the media player would need to have a massive exploit for a media file such as an mp3 to execute any malicious code. Most modern media players are very secure.
>>
>>993376

Not necessarily, though I agree it would be rather difficult.

Pink literally means Trusted and Green is for VIP which are above Trusted.

Don't bother listening to the retards on this thread, they are the type of guys that tell you to download TOR + VPN + TAILS to browse the deep web or the FBI will rape you.

Any torrent website can give you aids, and any website can be monitored by anti-piracy so the piratebay is as good as any other shitty website.

the best thing you can do it's to use a real VPN + common sense, if you cant then stick to scene releases.

Rarbg has been failing me lately, but I'm a complete nubaby to torrenting.

For some reason almost any torrent I try to download from rarbg gets stuck on "connecting to peers"
I've enabled encryption and UPnP port mapping, also firewall exception, but nothing. Nyaa torrents still work and yify too sometimes, any idea why?
I'd say my ISP is blocking me but right now I got a magnet from another thread and it's downloading just fine...

I use pirate the most, mainly cause I was never able to enter a private tracker, nor I care about vpn since my country doesn't give a fuck about I torrent.

A VPN that you send ALL traffic through will hide it. But for decent speeds you're going to need to pay for it, like $10/mo for ExpressVPN. Free VPNs are slow, shit, and are selling your info - you're not giving them money, so that's how they monetize you.

Alternatively, you could pay $5/10 a mo for a seedbox someplace like Digital Ocean - that way all your torrentling is 'in the cloud' and your ISP isn't involved at all except when you sftp the stuff back to your home PC (and they can't see inside sftp). I haven't been keeping up with the best seedbox places, some other anon should have suggestions. Just make sure to watch the bandwidth limits.

I see. The free Chrome VPN extension I panic downloaded will both not help because all traffic is not going through it and it's selling my information. If I want to reliably keep pirating with my ISP I'm going to need to spend money. Seems like it defeats the point a little but it'll probably work out cheaper.

Psiphon is relatively safe

Cant you just use a socks5 proxy, since the way you're getting fucked is copyright holders joining the torrent then tattling to your ISP?

If youre gonna technically break the law you should probably do more research

What's Piratebay's current URL?

I know they change it around every so often, like EZTV.

Tried rarbg but its shit. All the software category is years old (up to 2014) and searched for Klixen to find only 3 available videos the newest being from 2017.

If I cant find the most recent porn nor software its useless.

Man I miss kickass torrent and peak Pirate Bay.

See if it has a GOG release, and then download it from somewhere after

Same here. Since 2003 I've been on Kazaa, DC++, eMule and various Torrent clients, almost always using public trackers. Never had a single problem.
Then again, I hardly ever download new games for PC.
