Bogus? :confused:

A WHOIS search discloses that the disputed domain name was created on 21-Mar-99, some 3½ years before the emule-project.net domain name.

Domain Name: emule.com
Created on: 21-Mar-99

Domain Name: emule-project.net
Created on: 11 Sep 2002

~ Aggravated
Test it yourself.
There comes out the installer offered by this page, do your same the test, try to install it and verify the reliability of the same one.
Bogus or not, it´s a fraudulent site to eMule.

On the other hand, the year of creation is not relevant in this case. Though already of for yes, a domain created before that the proper project emule, is a sample of which it was not created in order emule.

Does someone more think that it is a trustworthy/genuine website?

Concerning domain official-emule.com, it is registered to "Favorit Network S.L." which is in fact adware maker. As such, it is not a terrible shock to find out that this site in fact pushes some client they call eMule which installs adware ... at least they didn't clone the site looks as some other scam sites did.

From the user guide "Official eMule is free because it is an ad-supported software." (official-emule.com/website/guide.php?)

Should the Whois data be correct, these fraudsters are Euros, from Spain to be exact, http://whois.domaint...icial-emule.com

Apparently, this is the scumbag that owns the site. At least we have a face to pin this to now.

emuleprofesional.es is front (or affiliate) of "Favorit Network S.L.". Download link (and all other links too) points to official-emule.com. According to ESREG Whois, owner of the site is "Centrocom Cyber SL".


emuleprofesional.es (page itself is one massive IFrame) pulls all content through netfilia.com, another Spanish website :) Interestingly enough, "Netfilia Interactiva, SA" and "Centrocom Cyber S.L." are both located in the same building, C/ Marqués de Riscal, 11 2º · 28010 Madrid & Marqués de Riscal, 11 2º | 28010 Madrid, respectively.


Considering the quite direct connection between above mentioned sites, it would be interesting to find out more about the possible connection between them, especially regarding Centrocom Cyber SL and Favorit Network S.L. It's possible that Centrocom and Netfilia are unconnected (if the address is business park for example), but at the moment I'd consider them as same company. Too much of a coincidence for them to have same physical address.


*****
There's also interesting connection to site called pc-on-internet.com, also registered to "Favorit Network S.L." ( http://whois.domaint...on-internet.com ), which claims to be site of something called "FAVORIT International". Also adware company, see SiteAdvisor results here http://www.siteadvis...on-internet.com

"Favorit Network S.L." and "FAVORIT International" are both registered to same person/company :)

hxxp://www.emuledownload.org/


Zango-connected domain! Donwload is pulled from hxxp://preview.licenseacquisition.org/ ... Owner of that domain is Zango, Inc. A known spyware company!

Edit: It'd appear that currently the .exe promoted by these two sites is in fact clean (and the same as the original installer available via e-P). I submitted it to AV company. So, what is the catch currently? Have a a clean site with clean download and later on change to 'sponsored' version once userbase has been established?

Are you ok?

Since 2 years you block CAT ISP, that's the main ISP in Thailand.


No wonder why here no emule users since about 2 years.
Whole National ISP is blocked on the low ip range:
61.19.67.0 - 61.19.67.255 CAT Telecom|Anti-p2p
http://www.cat.net.th/isp ISP Package ADSL HiNet http://www.cat.net.th/hinet/ and wireless Internet packages use this IP range
Its a National ISP in Thailand.

Who makes this ipfilters, have they any idea about it or just make a ip lookup and there shows C.A.T. Communication Authorities of Thailand which is a local public ISP and is part wise privatized?
I thought the ISP throttle P2P but now its getting clear why eMule and BT is quite slow 5 - 30 kb/s since year 2007

That range contains just 256 ips, do you really think this is the whole National ISP?

Cheers :D

FYI, emule-project.com does not block anything. The right place to start asking would be bluetack.com
