If you are an user of a private tracker. You know that is difficult to maintain a proper ratio.

Under windows they are a couple of software (ratiomaster, mRadio etc...) to cheating and report fake upload to tracker to avoid loose ability to download.

This add on does the same thing but in Firefox and cross platform (windows/mac/linux).

How is it working ?

The bittorrent protocol is basic and trust the user (his torrent client) too report the uploaded data.
So this extension reports fake upload values and keeps your ratio up and running.

How to use ?

The add on after installed will monitor your download and detect torrent files.
If the torrent comes from a private tracker (only !!!) it will add to the list of shared files et will regulary (30 minutes on average) will report to the tracker some upload stat and update the current status of your torrent : uploaded, total seeders and leechers.

Risk impact

FreeLeech requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install FreeLeech if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

FreeLeech has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
