Killing a torrent

First: hi, I've been out for a while

Second: Someone has an active torrent up on tpb which I absolutely do not want to spread, as it includes some seriously classified information.

Is there any app that 'kills' a torrent by constantly downloading it over and over again? Killing the upload speed basically means killing the torrent.

Edit: don't know if this complies with the oc3d t&c btw, but there's no actual spreading of illegal software involved.

Yeah Im pretty sure the only way to kill a torrent is not to seed the torrent, you can say that the file contains a virus in the comments section of the torrent lol. I think you can also file a complaint on tpb not sure though.

Create loads of accounts and spam it with genuine looking viral alerts and "finished the download but it's incomplete" blah blah blah.

Reckon u got a cat in hells chance of either removing it or it's potential seeds.

U could be really nasty and load the torrent for downloading urself, then look for the IP addresses of all the seeders, then flood them. But I'd never suggest u do that.

Contact TPB and tell them it contains personal information that someone put on there.
