Regarding obfuscated posts

Postby coolHD » Fri Oct 06, 2017 10:34 am

Hello users,

Its my first day on this forum and i hope that i shall get my answers to the questions which i'm trying to figure out Image link not allowed for unregistered users

Obfuscated posts are a great way to keep the contents secure (slightly) and keep away a bit from the DMCA. Various methods are implemented by the posters and out of which i have been trying to figure out few methods the posters are using so that i myself could post the content as well Image link not allowed for unregistered users

For e.g. a certain release is posted/uploaded in this format
3c9d99d8bf409e309cea83a3b8b7ea57.01
3c9d99d8bf409e309cea83a3b8b7ea57.02
3c9d99d8bf409e309cea83a3b8b7ea57.03

after doing the par check the original names are in this format
release name.r01
release name.r02
release name.r03

So i wanted to know that how to convert the rars to the above format? (3c9d99d8bf409e309cea83a3b8b7ea57.01)

I mean are there any tools used for this

looking forward for the responses

Typically it seems to be a one way function like a hash meaning going from

release name.r01 to 3c9d99d8bf409e309cea83a3b8b7ea57

Is doable but the reverse isn't.

But suppose i have a release with me and they are in rars and i want to post them

How to first obfuscate my post in the above method?

something like this

3c9d99d8bf409e309cea83a3b8b7ea57.01
3c9d99d8bf409e309cea83a3b8b7ea57.02
3c9d99d8bf409e309cea83a3b8b7ea57.03

As you can see the rar format is not noticeable

Likely they are using some custom posting software to perform this function. You'd have to contact someone posting like this to find out. Unless you have a way into their inner circle, I doubt it'll be easy to do that.
