Have fun! And be careful what you post online about yourself. They have no respect for your privacy. After all entire site idea was stolen to start with.

For downloading torrents you need a client like uTorrent. Archives are in .bz2 format, so you will need WinRAR or any other archiver capable of extracting BZ2 format.

Major Corporations Are Downloading Those 100 Million Facebook Profiles off BitTorrent

Remember that torrent yesterday that contained the personal information off of 100 million scraped Facebook profiles? I thought it was strange that the guy didn't sell this information, since many companies would be interested. Turns out they are interested.

Reader Clint discovered that all you had to do is use something like Peer Block, which grabs the IPs of the other users also downloading the torrent and identifies which company or university or organization they belong to. You can check this yourself by hopping on the torrent and doing the same thing.

Here are the major companies that are downloading the torrent. A couple caveats to these. Just because a company is on the list, doesn't mean that it's a sanctioned download by the company itself to grab the user information for some purpose. It could easily just be some dude at the company who wanted to download the torrent himself to check it out. Also, the IP addresses assigned to a company might fluctuate (they usually don't, much, unless major companies change their connection to the internet, so it should be mostly accurate).

Check if your name is included: http://nohasslesites.com/FacebookNames/

Don't worry, it's just names and urls to FB profiles.

hohoho thank ne more to my list hacker, did not know that it was permissible here if any wise before. can I post forms to hack emails? I'm just programming in MySQL and found some good tips... ;S

Now I remember I have available a hacker to pc which is a type of keylogger. But the best make these features:
- Keylogger
- You can see the webcam
- You can hear the audio (microphone)
- Transfer of files on the pc
- Screenshot
- Similar to team viewer (I am still I have trouble programming that much lag)

This program is not what I'm doing as a virus but a software that could pass both viruses, but it is very hard lately I have problems with antivirus and indectetable is very difficult to do for now. But when I run as a program runs very well and I know there are already programs like this, but are bad in my opinion and I say this from experience

I hope to finish my program this year, I say it is easier to use java and netbeans but I think for now I no longer like this and it will finish with visual studio I think is more reliable in this case.

All info he published (names and url to profiles) is already available in Facebook directory and Google cache, etc... His "hack" is nothing more than a glorified web spidering operation. His motivation was to get a lot of real people's names, for some other project, then media made it "hack of the century", after he published everything on torrent sites. In other words, no real hacking was done, all info published is perfectly legal to download, and all panic around this is perfectly stupid.
