Safety measures for newbies


Recommended Posts

Fairly new to bit torrents, but have read up a bit. Using utorrent so far has been pretty straightforward but I wonder about what I can do to better protect myself from malicious activity and spying eyes. Here's what I'm currently doing in Windows:

Set up utorrent with protocol encryption enabled

Running PeerGuardian

and in more general terms, have got a firewall, router and antivirus on at all times.

To source my torrents I'm predominately using meganova and on occasion piratebay.

If I'm going wrong somewhere please let me know and if you have any further suggestions on how to better protect myself I'd be really grateful for your input. Hopefully other will find this useful as well.
