Identify operating systems by the target's torrent downloads.

Lately there has been a lot of talk about the website where you can lookup any ip address and find the torrents they have downloaded. Many people are concerned about the publicity of their torrent downloads. We should all be concerned about our privacy now days. Many are seeing this website as a negative thing which it does seem to be, so I started thinking how can we turn this around and make it a more positive thing for us as hackers? One way I thought of was to use the information to identify the targets operating system. and this is exactly what my new program OsSnitch does. This is no replacement for the program Nmap which actually talks with the computer to identify the OS, however sometimes Nmap is not ableto identify the targets OS and this is where OsSnitch comes into play. It gives us another chance to identify the operating system when Nmap fails.

The program is new so look for updates often. I will be updating it so it can identify the OS's better. Any suggestions are more than welcome.
