Blocking a lot of EDUs
January 17, 2012 11:00AM
OK so here's the story. I'm at community college and I get blocked from the network. I ask WTF and the unkempt face fo the IT department tells me its because I have utorrent installed. This equally pisses me off and creeps me out because I didn't USE utorrent while on the network so I'm like how dah hell do they know I have it. So for fun I turn on peerblock and add the EDU list while I'm at the coffee shop down the block (and on their wifi) and boom, for like 45 minutes this morning I watch this thing block IPs 2-3 times a minute from what must be 20 different universities. but utorrent isn't on. nothing is on. so Then I switch wifi's (I wanted a sandwich) and it's still happening. I scanned my computer with spybot and a virus scanner and they found nothing. Whats going on? I don't usually get activity like this from peerblock unless I'm torrenting. I'm creeped out.
