www.foldershare.com

Related with we was talking about in http://www.kvcd.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=119531#119531

FolderShare (for any kind of files) is not completely same as AudioGalaxy was for mp3, but it rocks anyway.
I am thinking about how to set it to share digital video related files, programs, avisynth filters, etc. between KVCD.net members.

I registered, but I quickly shut down the client
The reason is that I could see my complete workstation from the web browser, and if anyone cracks this program, they have full access to your machine
The concept is very nice, but I just can't trust it.
I think I will start using WASTE again, which is very secure because of the Public key encryption it has.
Nobody can access your machine unless you give them your key.
And all file transfers are fully encrypted, so not even your ISP can tell what you are transfering

BTW, here's my Public key, in case anyone wants to connect to me

You'll need to send me your key so we can connect. Please do so via PM

@Kwag

Thanks for the info about Folder Share and the test you have done, this was my concern on how secure it was and now that you have brought to light it's weakness I don't fancy opening up my PC to the World to exploit.

Thanks also Karl for the link to Waste. I shall look into it when I get back from my holiday and install it, I think this is a good idea and a much more secure way of doing things.

One thing though about waste suppose you are sharing with someone and you give them you key and they give you their key. How safe is it in this situation? Can it be exploited if that person was a hacker?

Thanks again Karl for the link.

WASTE can't be hacked, because all data is transfered encrypted. Just like secure shell.
It's a network of "trusted" peers.
There's a comment at CNN: "RIAA may be better off penetrating al Qaeda"

I didn't think of that either
Until I ran the program, and saw all my directories open to the world
I took it down in less that 1 minute

Imagine it you. When you post that warning I was in my work, and the satellite running in my house.

That is a relief Karl, that has put my mind at ease.

A hell of a lot safer than foldershare that is for sure.

I used to run a FTP server from home and with my firewall I never got hacked but then again maybe I was lucky.

FTP is not too safe, as all communications are clear text.
Unless you use FTP over SSH, and then you are ok
I personally don't use FTP or Telnet anymore. Only ssh and ftp over ssh.

In Windows, yes.
In Unix, no

http://www.rz.uni-karlsruhe.de/~ig25...ssh-faq-4.html

I use ssh all the time to do backups over the net, from work to home.
I just pipe FTP over ssh, and all transfers are secure.
Of course, when I'm in Windows, I use one of Putty's programs, "psftp.exe"
