Steam Bans All Links to TorrentFreak News as “Potentially Malicious”

Torrentfreak - 1 óra 12 perc

Once upon a time, Internet users were free to look at whatever content they liked. There was an almost complete absence of intervention from third-parties, which was mostly a good thing.

However, after the number of Internet users rocketed, more threats began to emerge. Viruses and other types of malware became pervasive, aiming to abuse users’ computers in various ways, from creating botnets to simple vandalism.

As a result, the security market has boomed. Barely a week goes by without some website or piece of software triggering an alert on a machine protected by good anti-virus and anti-malware tools. They don’t always get it right but most interventions are welcomed when the intention is to keep us safe.

On top, however, Internet users are finding online resources censored. Nation states sometimes decide what citizens can and cannot read, while corporate firewall products and network routers often act as over-protective nannies, blocking content based on non-transparent, non-public rules.

Here at TorrentFreak we’re used to censorship. Every few months we’re contacted by readers trying to access our news articles on public WiFi, only to find that the site is blocked alongside various warnings, none of which are true. It’s almost as if the word ‘torrent’ in our URL has been blindly blacklisted for some reason.

Sadly, this week we’ve discovered that Steam, the popular digital game distribution and social networking platform, has jumped on the “let’s censor TorrentFreak” bandwaggon. A tip from a TF reader and Steam user highlighted the problems he’d experienced when trying to read TF articles via Steam’s chat interface.

“I don’t know if you’re already aware of this but the PC gaming software ‘Steam’ is flagging your website as ‘suspicious’ in its chat interface,” he explained.

As the first image below shows, Steam first flagged a link to an article we published this week detailing how Japan intends to crack down on sites that offer links to copyrighted content.

Suspicious news?

The small irony here is that the article details how Japan needs to bring in new and highly controversial laws to criminalize linking to copyrighted content, something which is currently legal in the country. Steam, however, is free to block links to our 100% legal copyrighted content on a whim, mark our platform as “suspicious”, while blocking users from reading our reports.

The second image below shows just how misguided Steam’s policy is. This week, TorrentFreak broke the news that cheat developers in Australia face home searches and asset freezing following legal action from GTA V developer Rockstar Games and parent company Take-Two Interactive.

It is an original article that covers an important and growing issue in the gaming sector that will hopefully prove of interest to gamers – the very people using Steam’s platform. However, Steam users are prevented from following links to the piece because someone or something at Steam has labeled our news site as “potentially malicious.”

GTA V news – censored

While these are just two examples, we could go on forever. As the large image below shows, Steam has banned our entire platform and put up a warning that’s not only completely false but also damaging to our reputation.

“https://torrentfreak.com has been flagged as being potentially malicious. For your safety, Steam will not open this URL in your web browser. The site could contain malicious content or be known for stealing user credentials,” the warning reads.

Stealing user credentials? Insulting and ridiculous

Of course, on its own platform Steam is fully entitled to block resources that it believes can harm its users. Some might even argue that it has a duty of care to do so, in order to keep its community safe. However, making blatantly false statements while blocking access to accurate news reporting shouldn’t ever be part of that.

Steam is no stranger to blocking links to sites in the file-sharing niche. Previously we’ve reported how it blocked links to KickassTorrents, The Pirate Bay, and MEGA.nz.

While the ban on MEGA was lifted shortly after our article was published back in April, the company appears to be out of favor with Steam once again. Tests show that Mega.nz links are completely banned by the gaming platform with a warning about malicious content and potential stealing of credentials. Meanwhile, known scam sites such as Demonoid.to are in the clear, according to Steam.

There is nothing malicious about our news resource and we’re really upset at the suggestion we might steal user credentials. We’d therefore be very grateful indeed if a Steam engineer could remove TorrentFreak.com from its blacklists, whenever he or she gets a couple of free minutes.

Film Review: ‘Hunter Killer’

It’s no trick for even a ham-handed global action thriller to achieve a ripped-from-the-headlines “topicality.” Just throw in a terrorist from the right enemy nation, or an American president with the right haircut. So it’s a weird and musty Twilight Zone indeed that one enters to watch “Hunter Killer,” a grindingly ponderous and bombastic neo-Cold […]

Mailbag: Producer/Executive Producer Differences, Review Writing Process, Film Adaptations, Halloween Plans, Translated Interviews & More

slashfilm - 10 óra 47 perc

harry potter

On the October 19 2018 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta is joined by /Film managing editor Jacob Hall, senior writer Ben Pearson and writers Hoai-Tran Bui and Chris Evangelista to answer reader e-mail in the Mail Bag.

You can subscribe to /Film Daily on iTunes, Google Play, Overcast, Spotify and all the popular podcast apps (here is the RSS URL if you need it).

Opening Banter: HT talks about doing an interview with a translator.

 

In The Mailbag:

  • Chris from Ohio writes in: What are your plans for Halloween?”
  • Britton from Louisville KY writes in: “What is the difference between a producer and an executive producer? Do they both get best picture oscars if their movie wins?”
    • Peter explains:
      • An Executive Producer is the top executive of the operations, whereas the producer is the manager of the operations.
      • The executive producer prepares the budget and acquires the investors, while the producer makes sure how the budget is properly utilized.
      • The producer hires the people with the right talents and skills for the movie where the producer himself is hired by the Executive Producer.  For the most part, the executive producer has very little to do with the hiring process, aside from hiring the producer.
      • The producer is on set for the entire production (although some films have multiple producers, technical producers and a creative producers), the executive producer is not on set all the time but is used in more of an advisory capacity, overseeing the scripts and marketing.
      • A producer is always eligible for awards in the industry, on the other hand, the Executive producer is not eligible for awards.
      • Sometimes an executive producer is more of a credit than a job.
  • Damon P. from St. Louis, MO writes in “I was wondering, since many of the team reads books that are movies or will eventually be movies, if they believe that breaking up a film into two parts (think Deathly Hallows, or Mockingjay) to make a book more complete in film format is a good thing.  So many times we hear “The book is better” why is that? Is that because the movies are limited by time, to incorporate additional plots points or anything like that. Would it be better to break a movie into two (or three) parts in order to give the source material it’s due?”
  • Leanne R. from LA writes in “Here’s a quick mailbag question that occurred to me as I was listening to the 12/21 episode: what are the best films directed by & starring the same person? (or to widen the field, including the director as a minor role? e.g., Tarantino or Mel Gibson films)”
    • Peter: Well first of all I think we should discount cameos (M Night, Tarantino…etc). Ben Affleck (Town, Argo) although I feel when hes not in the movie his films are better (Gone Baby Gone)
    • HT: Citizen Kane, Life is Beautiful
    • Chris: Unforgiven, A Star Is Born, Dick Tracy, Do The Right Thing
    • Jacob: Citizen Kane, Unforgiven, lots of Buster Keaton/Charlie Chaplin movies
    • Ben: The Outlaw Josey Wales, High Plains Drifter, A Quiet Place, Rocky sequels
  • Drew from Houston, TX writes in “Hey /Film Daily team,  I really enjoyed the conversation about becoming a film writer. I had another question taking that one step further for those on the site who write reviews: what is your process? Obviously it’s hard to take notes when watching a film in theaters. Do you create an outline before diving into a review? Does Chris take notes when reviewing tv shows or blu-rays before writing his review? Just curious to hear a little more about the process.  Thanks!”

‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Featurette: How the Stars Became Queen

slashfilm - 11 óra 18 perc

bohemian rhapsody featurette

Becoming a rock icon is always a difficult job, but playing one that’s still living? That’s a Herculean task that each of the stars, with the exception of Rami Malek, had to take on in Bohemian Rhapsody. That’s the equivalent of playing Mozart’s concertos while Mozart watches you like a hawk. But Gwilym Lee, Joseph Mazzello, and Ben Hardy were up to the task, as shown in the latest Bohemian Rhapsody featurette released by 20th Century Fox.

Bohemian Rhapsody Featurette

Rami Malek has been getting all the attention in the lead-up to the release of Bohemian Rhapsody, but 20th Century Fox wants to remind you that there were three other talented members of Queen — all of whom are still alive. Brian May and Roger Taylor are both actively involved in the biopic of the rock band, acting as creative consultants. Early on, their heavy hand in production has sparked concerns over the film becoming a hagiography, but as the film evolved, it (hopefully) seems like that’s not the case.

But the latest Bohemian Rhapsody featurette brings the other Queen members back into the spotlight, with Lee, Mazzello, and Hardy speaking about playing the rock band members and mastering their instruments. “We all worked really hard to master our instruments as best we could,” Lee said in the featurette.

“We knew that we couldn’t fake it,” Mazzello added.

May and Taylor of course came on board to give their on-screen counterparts some tips. “I find myself looking at the edits, and I do kind of believe he’s me,” May said of Lee.

Bohemian Rhapsody is directed by Bryan Singer based on a script by Anthony McCarten. It also stars Lucy Boynton, Aidan Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech, and Mike Myers.

Here is the synopsis for Bohemian Rhapsody:

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

Bohemian Rhapsody opens in theaters on November 2, 2018.
