Default So how "safe" is Bit Torrent?

I'm just wondering. I just tried to get something...I D/L'd BT a while ago but never set it up...when I went to grab this certain something, Norton popped up saying that it'd blocked an "Open Process."

I'm just wondering if this could be a red flag not to D/L the thing. Any help is appreciated.

Oh and if this works, Tri's my new hero.

Late.

I can't and don't want to tell you that it's 100% safe...because when you're downloading some shit via online...nothing is 100% safe...but I can tell you that it's safer than Limewire...or any similar p2p programs...in term of being sue for downloading copyrighted materials and those craps...I'd use it more often if people were to seed more...other than that I don't know what to tell you...it's great for download big files such as Full albums, Movies, WWE PPVs...I got a couple WMs off of that...if you're going to download individual mp3s or small files...use Limewire...but then again...shit is not safe...because I've heard 13 y.o and 60+ y.o got sued for copyrighted materials...so yeah...hope that helped...

I don't think that is anything to worry about I'm pretty sure it is just your firewall saying that this program is not allowed to access the internet. I have never had any problems with that but it takes a long fucking time. I guess in terms of getting sued yeah your probably better off using that but you might get some letters from you internet provider telling you to stop using it and in rare cases they have cut peoples internet connections.

But if your only using it for videos I have a better way of doing it so if you wanna know what it is just pm. Anyone else who wants to know is also welcome to pm me.

Its not safe at all...not even a little bit.

Programs like Peer Guardian lower the risk but its never completely gone.

Fuck torrents...stick with newsgroups...much MUCH safer.

I use it and have found zero problems with it. I'd reccomend it since it doesn't hurt this 6 year old peice of crap.

I don't really use it but my sister does and it appears to be quite safe. My sister got photoshop CS3 and it works perfectly, i had it put on my PC as well and no viruses were detected. But then we might have been lucky, they could be loads of viruses on what you download, thats the cons of P2Ps, just be sure to have a good firewall to detect anything.

Torrents don't hurt your PC.

The safety issue with torrents is that its the top P2P service and has been targeted as such for well over a year now. I work at an ISP and we've gotten thousands (keep in mind we only have 40-50 thousand subscribers) of C&D letters regarding torrents...even for some off the wall shit like cook books.

The data in the torrents is safe...but it also is illegial in most contries to be involved in sending that data out to other people. Since there is absolutely no way to avoid this in torrents there is never a way for them to be 100% safe.

Yeah. I know someone who used bittorrent once and got a C&D letter for a movie. BitTorrent forces you to share whereas other P2P programs have options so you can set the files to share to zero or very few.

At least thats what I've heard, of course.
