Gov's are currently trying to track down all servers, so they can work with Gov's of each country to simultaneously make law changes and raid the servers at the exact same time...

Sounds like that would be too far, yet I can see them trying...

Go MU!

I can't see how the "take down" function will work at all now if the files are AES encrypted. How are they going know what is what unless they have the key?

There's isn't much difference between this new way and the old way. You couldn't ever really search MU for content, every think was done on a user to user basis. ex. user A has a file user B wants, user A gives the download URL to the file and password (if required) to user B. User B goes to the link and inputs any applicable password and they get to download.

The only difference now it seems is that you just download the files after you get the link and then enter an encryption keys once it's downloaded. I assume it's going to be similar to having to input a .zip or .rar password.

So really no different than if we gave each other access to our ftp servers...except of course the files are hosted on MU.

I mean you don't get anything without a file's owner's Permission. Even if it is just the uploader posting the link and password/key for the world to see.

With that knowledge I can't see how megaupload ever got in trouble at all. The user's were the ones giving the data out.

I suppose copyright owners will download the ZIP files that are encrypted and compare the MD5 checksums? Though I'm sure I just overlooked something by saying that.

They'd need the decryption keys, or either spend a ton of time cracking every file?

Doesn't cracking encryption by brute force require hundreds or thousands of years? I don't believe there is any known way to break AES encryption either.

Just FYI everyone should start using long random ass passwords, then just save it to a file on a flash drive (that way you cant actually remember it) and lose the flash drive if you need to.

I suggest losing it with a hammer involved.

Before users upload their files to Mega they will be encrypted using the AES algorithm. Users will then be provided with a unique decryption key giving them sole responsibility for who can have future use of the file.

Not only does this ensure completely security and privacy for users’ files, Mega will have no knowledge of any encrypted file’s contents at any stage, effectively deflecting any future accusation that they were aware of how their service was being used.

 

I love this bit, its genius. Same with the bit with charging for content removal
