    Hi.
    I was recently banned from sharecash because of something they referred to as ?ToS #7?, basically they had registered that a lot of my file downloads were coming from the same IP address and proxies.
    So I was wondering if anyone knows what it would take for them to not be able to notice that so I can prevent it in the future? I read somewhere that if you use Hotspot Shield and clear your browser cache between sessions that would be enough for their system not to notice if you download your own files. Just now when I was banned I had programmed a bot that filled out their surveys and cleared the cache between each download and used a browser running a Zenmate plugin (which is similar to hotspot shield I guess?) which was supposed to give me a new US ip-address each session. And to me it looked like it changed Ip between sessions ? if I went to a page like whatsmyip.com I could see my ip changing every time I reopened my browser. But apparently that wasn?t enough. I don?t fully know how these type of things work, can they see something other than the ip address I can see myself? And what would that be?

    It would be nice to have full control of what/who I?m appearing to be each time I access a site to avoid situations like this in the future. Surely it shouldn?t be too hard to appear as a new person each time you access a site? If the FBI/NSA can?t trace people on the deep web, it should be a piece of cake to hide from sharecash right? I was originally planning on accessing my sharecash links on the Tor browser to be more anonymous from sharecash but for some reason I couldn?t fill out their surveys on that browser, maybe they aren?t accepting Tor browser since they know the person behind it is bound to be up to no good? And is it possible to mask Tor somehow to make it look like ordinary Chrome or something?

    Anyone with experience from this that could share his/her wisdom about how to appear as a new user each time you access a site? I just want to create a beautiful survey-filling masterpiece of a bot that can drain PPD companies dry! But getting banned sucks.

    I registered to this forum just now, perhaps I misunderstood the concept behind it completely :) I was under the impression that something called blackhatworld could be a great hub of information for messing with systems and internet security and so on. Not some sort of sharecash guardians fan club.

    Not that I'm here to debate sharecash itself but my opinion is that if a company makes its money from preventing innocent people from downloading what they want and instead tricks them into filling out surveys they don't want to fill out and that will only end up giving them a bunch of commercial spam mail or telephone calls from sales people if they are stupid enough to leave their numbers - then that company is deeply unethical and deserves to be messed with in any way possible. So the way I see it is I'm only doing the world a service, I find it really strange that people who spread sharecash links to real people could think that they are making legitimate money.

    Not all advertisers will do such things, but I guess you're somewhat right. And you should not be downloading your own files. It's actually easier to drive some traffic instead of trying to game the system. We share our links and to get that thing they need to fill out a survey. If they DON'T want to, the don't have to, it's up to them in the end and I'm pretty sure that in the ToS of the offer everything is stated what will their info be used or not for.

    I didn't mean that I considered sharecash ethical before I got banned, I never registered to sharecash with the intention to spread links to real people. That would be criminal. In fact sharecash is so unethical my anti-virus flagged the page as untrustworthy when I first searched it on google - a true sigil of unethicalness!

    If someone unethical broke into your house and tried to murder your wife would you use violence (unethical) on him? Perhaps not a perfect analogy :) but still. I don't claim that it's ethical to cheat sharecash, but neither do I claim that they deserve ethical behavior from their users. All is fair in love and games.

    But if I go to for example whatismyip it tells me "No Proxy detected", are you saying sharecash can see though this in a more detailed way somehow? And how can I in that case see it myself so I know what others are seeing?

    They have other ways to detect you than cookies and IP#. Go and drive some traffic to your sites. It's way easier than cheating pennies out of them.

    Well exactly, that was confirmed in the question itself but what I am asking is: what is it they are detecting?

    And since this forum despite its name appears to have absolutely nothing to do with black hat activity and everything to do with people playing by the rules of big corporations and almost getting offended by the idea of cheating the system (which is basically the most ironic thing ever considering the name of this forum) - does anyone know of any more...well.. "real" black hat forum that I could perhaps turn to instead? Where people perhaps are more open minded towards this kind of inquiries?
    Thanks

    Blackhat World is about gaming the system not stealing. You think that BHW is a forum about stealing and not out thinking.

    Therein lies your misconception.

    Hmm, looked into it a little but as far as I can see it also looks to be more of a marketing/commercial strategy forum. Anything a bit darker in store?

    Pretty impressive, I make multiple thousands a month, not multiple pennies on some shite like Sharecash.

    Stealing is definitely a strong choice of words for what this is about. If you guys here share links with each other with no intention to buy things from the companies that are paying for the surveys then they of course lose just as much money as if a computer bot filled out the survey. So I think we all want similar things here, I think everyone who uses sharecash wants the same thing which is to make some money. We don't care about the wellbeing of the companies that pays for the actual surveys right? I just prefer an automated system over humans wasting time filling out surveys.

    What if many of us are the ones that pay for the surveys?

    We don't care about ourselves?

    Yeah, it is stealing.
