RC5 "Skips" Certain Obfuscated Files

Postby WhatZit » Tue Mar 06, 2018 7:11 pm

Newsbin 6.80RC5 Build 5042 has an issue with the nzb's for particular obfuscated postings.

You can load the nzb into Newsbin just fine, but no matter what filter bypass options you try, it will only download the tiny text files in the set, then simply skip over the single large main file without any error or feedback (no "Missing Article" or anything), and without any entry for the skipped file in either the Failed or Downloaded file list.

No logging at all. It just disappears from the download list as if it didn't exist in the set once the 2 small files are downloaded.

The posts discriminated against usually consist of only 2 tiny text files and one large payload file, all heavily obfuscated, with each file in the set usually posted to a different group.

Is this a known issue?

I just fixed this this morning. The fix is in RC6 which we've started testing. Unless there are problems it'll be out in the next day or so.
