I am supposing a client that has only limited friends and using 1S network only, no BT at all.
There are plenty of ways to configure the searches and to launch searches. How were they impacting the security.
First, there is the option of "request file list" for every friend. How does it work regarding security and in what direction does this work. Whose file goes to whom. Mine to him, his to me or we exchange both of ours. Is there a search list forwarding system as for the file exchange ? This would mean I needn't any friend to request his file list since I can get that of his friends...
Another problem is when applying a search, I'll get some result. If I am not be able to download 100% the torrent because it's stuck, if I try another search, many times I get less or no results. Weird. It is as if first try must be the good one. If I wait for a while, I'll get back something close to my first try.
Very intriguing too.
If I use classic UI there is the old way to force a download a bit by trying to "Force Download". If it's already on "Force Download" I'll make it back to "Download" and back to "Force Download". This is known to reask connections do the tracker on BT.
1S network reacts like BT.
1) If there is no connection, it may find one or more (color red passes to blue), seeds or peers.
2) If it's connected to peers/seeds (color blue), how
Now big question is 'Is there a security breach in forcing downloads'?
Other question regards the searches (Web UI): Is there a security risk when we ask and insist on reasking on the same topic?
Third question is: How the 'request file list' on a friend affects the security in the two previous questions?
