Downloading a file at unrealistic speeds

When you download a file at incredible/unrealistic speeds for your connection, its very likely you have just got a fake file. One will notice this only if the DC++ option, Use safe and compressed transfers is enabled. This happens because the fake file is made up of repetitive characters, which DC++ recognizes and compresses for sending. Most of the time, these fake files present themselves in file formats such as: .avi, .bin, .iso. If you are still unsure if the file is fake, simply try to use it; if it does not work then there is even more assurance that it is.

If you happen to download one of these files, do the community a favor and alert the operators in the hub about the user and fake file(s).
