Chii finds lame files by ed2k link [fixed by killing lame f]

Post by pelican » Thu Aug 26, 2004 2:25 am

Chii, and possibly some other database interfaces, find lame files when given an ed2k link with the same size as said file. An example from irc follows mostly intact:

Code: Select all

pelican !file ed2k://|file|[l33t-raws]Naruto_98_(640x480_WMV9).[EBC06440].avi|244850688|b723a487f67d4d83f6b60326f75707e6|
Chii[AR] FILE: Love Hina - 4 - The Promise to Get Into Tokyo U was 15 Year Ago  - DIARY, by Dream-Anime (gid: 136), 244.850.688 bytes (fid: 11086).
And after adding that file:

Code: Select all

pelican !file ed2k://|file|[l33t-raws]Naruto_98_(640x480_WMV9).[EBC06440].avi|244850688|b723a487f67d4d83f6b60326f75707e6|
Chii[AR] FILE: Naruto - 98 - Quit Being a Ninja! Tsunade`s Notice ...

this is actually a feature and not a bug :P

if chii does not find a matching file by size+ed2k hash it will check if there is only one file in the entire db with the exact same filesize and if there is that one is returned as result.
but I always thought that chii would tell you that it is a match by size only, if she doesn't, that's the bug :P

BYe!

Then it is a bug, because she didn't (which confused me to no end; I thought that I'd found an ed2k collision).
