    i have a problem. i'm not able to download Pwnage tool from the official page of Dev Team.
    Safari (and i tried also with Firefox) said me impossible to connect to server.
    What can i do to solve the problem?
    I prefer the official link.

    To heck with the torrent, download from any of the links there then simply verify the SHA1 which the team provides. If the number matches then it's the same file.

    The team has been using torrents for years, get used to it.

    SHA-1 verification process

    1. Make sure you have the icon of the downloaded file displayed somewhere in the Finder.
    2. Open the Terminal application.
    3. Enter the command

    /usr/bin/openssl sha1

    into the Terminal window but don't press the Return key (Enter) yet. Instead, enter a blank character (space bar) after the "1".
    4. Drag the icon of the downloaded file from the Finder window into the Terminal window. A path specification will appear in the Terminal window.
    5. Now press the Return key (Enter).
    6. You will see output similar to the following example:

    SHA1(path specification)= 2eb722f340d4e57aa79bb5422b94d556888cbf38.

    The long sequence of digits and letters is the SHA1 checksum. Compare it to the checksum the file should have. (The correct checksum is mentioned on our respective download page). If it is identical, the file will be authentic.
