BitTorent Client Xunlei (aka Thunder)
We found out, there is a Client Xunlei (aka Thunder) which can cause: a) ratio cheating on our tracker b) report wrong upload/download values to our tracker (in several cases also negative values for upload traffic which can ruin the user's ratio) and in some special cases also loss for the uploader's upload traffic because of reports which are not protocol conform.
We decided to ban that client from our tracker like some others which are currrently banned too (see our FAQ for those clients). There is only another problem: This clients "hides" itself and reports faked client names to our tracker. But it can still identified by special anomalies in the reorted values. We are currently in contact with several client manufacturers to find out if we can find more about those faked client names.
If we know more about those faked names we can ban that client from our tracker finally.
Alas the effect of damage to a user's (or uploader's) ratio still remains so we also decided as a first measure to ban accounts which use this clients, detected by the anomalies in the reported values to protect our members to ruin their ratio by those wrong values.
What can you do: if your account is banned for that reason (to find out use our mailbox [email protected]) : contact an admin ([email protected]) and ask for help.
All other users using this client: we urgently recommend: Stop using this client!
(You probably know which client software we recommend - if not: ask a moderator or on our help desk).
Use a decent BitTorrent Client.
This is not aimed against our users but against companies which offer cheating and/or ratio dangerous clients!

2014-06-05 Popper: Since numerous months Xunlei is blocked by the tracker, means impossible to be used. therefore this topic is set un-sticky.
