False encryption detection in 0.7.13

Post by yukichigai »

In an unusual turnaround, Sabnzbd is now giving false positives for encryption detection in some downloads. I snagged two episodes of Warehouse 13 from an indexer and both came back as encrypted, but only after the files were all but downloaded. When I checked on the actual files in the incomplete folder I was able to extract them with 7-zip with no issue.

Trying to track down an NZB I can share that will recreate it. Unfortunately I have very slow bandwidth so I can't immediately test. It takes about an hour for me to download an episode.

EDIT: oh yes, the NZB included the subtitle download as well, which in typical form contained a rar file named the same as one of the rars containing the actual episode. Not sure if that might factor in.

Known issue, there are some posters that post double RAR-ed subtitle files.
Their method looks just like the one used by "cloaked encryption" morons.
I'm looking to fix this in 0.7.14
