UNTHEVC: Release Group encrypts motion picture film and fails

The release group UNTHEVC recently caused a stir in the underground with the Blu-ray rip “Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets”.

The release group UNTHEVC caused an uproar in the digital underground a few days ago. Contrary to usual practice, they password-protected their high-definition footage of Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore. Of course, there is no mention of this in the NFO. If you don’t know the password when unpacking, you won’t be able to access the Blu-ray recording.

Passwords are not forbidden in the rules, but most ftp sites only allow archives that anyone can unzip. The comments at Xrel & Co. were correspondingly negative.

UNTHEVC attempted insurrection?

Before over 20 For years there have been attempts to categorically cut off everything outside of the warez scene. P2P indexers, Usenet providers and many other operators of pirate websites benefit significantly from the activities of the release groups. Not only would they run out of warez without the actual source. No, without their voluntary work they would not earn any money afterwards! Therefore, the requirement at the time to provide everything with non-public passwords was absolutely understandable.

NFO by UNTHEVC. There is no mention of a password.

However, the procedure has not been implemented. You probably had to realize that you can’t prevent the warez from ending up with the users of P2P clients, on the hard drives of the share hosters or in the binary area of ​​Usenet anyway. Either way, the fight would have been completely hopeless.

New films again without a password

This also applies to UNTHEVC. Since the nuked release, at least four other films have been released by the group. But these were circulated again without a password. The experiment of the extremely active group is apparently over before it really begins. The operators of bit torrent websites, download portals and illegal streaming providers should at least be happy about it.

What do you think? Since the downloaders have nothing in common with the actual scene. Should we try again to separate them from all releases? Is that even possible? Write us your opinion on this in the forum. Or was UNTHEVC’s action doomed to fail from the start?
