Has anybody caught a virus using uTorrent / bittorrent? I have not

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I've downloaded lots of free porn, free textbooks, but not .MP3 free music,
 from Piratebay (which BTW is now on Ascension island in the mid Atlantic,  
having been hounded off their old address a few days ago), with no malware.

Anybody else?  You would think the RIAA would deliberately plant malware or
 fake files (to clog machines with huge worthless downloads, or downloads t
hat last forever because the last 1% is deliberately withheld from the torr
ent), as is their right (at least the fake files part) but I've not experie
nced this.

Dustin/Dustbin, what say you?

I've never downloaded p0rn with torrent, not too cheap to pay for ebooks,  
and rarely download mp3s either having found many to be unacceptable in  
quality. Mp3s aren't all created equally. I won't waste the HD space with  
half assers attempts. I've sailed the seas with pir8bay for years, having  
earned my official pirate flag some years ago as a valuable contributer to  
the cause.

The RIAA with sonys blessing did try this some years back. With a legally  
store bought cd purchase. It blew up quite nicely on them. The RIAA has  
seeded various p2p networks like napster before torrent become super  
popular and essentially replaced the central server configuration, with  
bad/fake files. It's common knowledge to many. I've never been personally  
affected by any of these script kiddie style attacks.

It's Dustin, ray... simple enough to spell.

Because you don't read?

OK.


Contradicts what you said above.  So you provide content for others, but never consume it yourself?  Like a gourmet chef that does not eat their own food?  It's possible (such people exist), but in your case I would say you're just bullshitting as usual.

I did say "Dustin/Dustbin" so I covered my bases... logic is not your forte Dustbin.

On occasion, I'll download some new track in mp3 format to determine if  
this is something my groups going to release in superior sounding mp3s.
Sick Puppies-Gunfight. I've acquired RG's release of it. HHI will likely be  
releasing our own rip right before xmas or right after. They went with lame  
3.99, we think we can do better with 3.90.3.

I'll make this piss easy: my utorrent stats since the last time I corrupted  
the settings.dat:

Total Uploaded: 70.2gigs  
total downloaded: 20.1 gigs

ratio: 3.509

Oh, and my downloads are mostly torrented iso files of linux distributions  
and packages like DRP. (http://drp.su /).. Mebbe.. 2... 2.5 gigs is music  
I've downloaded so far this year. Otherwise, I'll check it out on youtube  
or the radio.

    I just downloaded the iso. How safe is it ? Must be fairly
easy to slip a few zero-day malware "drivers" into a package that big
